BBC Television Centre Tour

BBC Television Centre is closing in early 2013, and the last tour takes place on 22nd February 2013. See this London landmark while you still can!
Wander the corridors, visit the studios, spot celebs, rummage around the dressing rooms and star in your own recording on a tour of the iconic BBC Television Centre. Founded in 1922, the world's largest broadcasting corporation still records much of its television output from this base at White City. Primarily an operational building, tours are arranged around the broadcasting activities of the day, so change from one day to the next, but will include a trip to the newsroom, weather studio, famous doughnut and a number of recording studios. Keep an eye out for famous faces and for TC1, the largest television studio in Europe TC1 is responsible for recording some of the world's most famous TV programmes including 'Fawlty Towers', 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' and 'Doctor Who'. Visitors will also get the chance to fiddle around in an interactive studio in front or behind the camera. Everyone has their own experience of the BBC. From Janet Ellis frolicking in the Blue Peter garden and Oasis performing in the Top of the Pops studio, to Moira Stewart reading the 6 o'clock News or Michael Fish describing the weather, TVC is responsible for a number of historic recordings and for broadcasting a wealth of shared images and experiences that evoke passionate nostalgia in people from around the world. Tours are for nine year olds and over and last between one and a half and two hours.

About BBC Television Centre

Although sold to property developers in July 2012, the BBC will remain, in part at least, at the iconic BBC Television Centre, its home since 1960. Plans for the 14-acre site include a studio space for the BBC, retail space with a cinema, a hotel and 1,000 new homes and flats. More about BBC Television Centre
