Went with group of older people who were all catered for in that the guide, the super, friendly Barry, advised that if anyone needed to rest for 5 mins or required a halt for the loo it was not a problem. It is a beautiful building inside which is unexpected from the glass box of the outside. Quite surprised at... More

The tour guides were friendly and well-informed. It was really interesting to see behind the scenes of the BBC. Also got the chance to sit at the Reporting Scotland desk and see myself on screen in front of the Weather Forecast screen!

Tour met up in foyer at Pacific Quay where we met our excellent guides Chris and Daniella who gave us a just short of 2 hour tour through the state of the art facilities of the building although some usual spots missed because of broadcasts but thats understandable. We got stories back to Lord Reith and facts about the building... More

Visited for filming of Who Dares Wins and we loved every minute of it. The BBC studios are an amazing place to visit with an insight into the world of television. If you get the chance do this!

Took my partner here for a tour as part of his birthday day out. I think it is safe to say this was the highlight of his day! It is an amazing building - very cleverly designed. The tour was fab - somewhat changes your perspective of what you think it will be like. News room is much smaller than... More

The Pacific Quay building is gorgeous and bright and airy. The tour guides were very bubbly and informative. They really drew you in to their excitement. Seeing behind the scenes of both TV and radio was very interesting and we even got to meet a weather presenter who let some of the kids read the weather with their names on... More

This was the first time we took the Brownies and Leaders and they all really enjoyed. Barry our guide was fully of information and the Brownies had loads of questions for him. Judith the newsreader came out and was happy to talk and let us take pictures. Very interesting afternoon . Yes would reccommend and we will be back.
