Really enjoyed my trip to Sony Studios recently. Our tour guide was very informative and friendly. It's fascinating to be able to go into a working sound stage and see how a TV show or movie is made. Highly recommended.

First time to Sony tour. Was good although if your seeing a show in the afternoon i would choose a later tour so your not waiting around so much. Its a standard walking tour no surprises. Was busy so not inside allowed.

It's a decent studio. Rather small but has a lot of history behind it and they allow you to step onto current sets
