If you get a chance to go in the audience for the Jeremy Kyle show then do it, it's amazing - the staff there are great and uplifting and Jeremy Kyle is a legend. Fab day out.

The home of a lot of ITV and BBC programs and the studios they broadcast from. Radio stuff too, along with a variety of media stuff. We watched a recording of a prime time program which was interesting but dragged on a bit.
