I took my daughter on the CBeebies variant of this tour for a surprise (she loves Blue Peter). You get to see the same places as the adult tour but with a more child orientated focus. It was simply excellent and well worth the money. The tour guides took great care to involve all the children and ensure there were... More

We went as a little family outing just before Christmas. Our guides, Paul and Lee, were entertaining and informative and tried to fit in as much as possible. I get the impression that tours vary depending on what is going on and it could be worth more than one visit. With it being just before Christmas it was quiet so... More

We visited on a Saturday morning and had a brilliant time. Our two tour guides, John and Paul, really knew their stuff and were both informative and engaging. Media City is a lovely place and we got to see lots of different parts of it - the BBC Breakfast set up, the Radio 6 Music studio, the hall where the... More

We went on a Thursday and were worried the tour would not be too good as not all studios are available on this day. However we were pleasantly surprised as we got to see the Radio 6 studio, the BBC Breakfast studio and the two BBC Sport studios ! We were taken around by two staff members, i think they... More

Fabulous tour of the radio and tv studios given by two excellent guides. We saw how a radio studio worked, the sound studio, visited the Blue Peter set and the highlight was reading the autocue on the This Morning set and "doing the weather". Plenty of photo oppportunities throughout, a very interesting afternoon. TIP - visit in the week when... More

Enjoyed our day,nice place,guides were very nice people. I think we were expecting the tour to be much more informative. We did n't really learn much . A radio drama studio, the empty Blue Peter studio, a radio studio and a mock up of Breakfast Tv studio. No surprises really

We were part of an eclectic group who all enjoyed the tour and the engaging guides (Mike and Claire). We experienced nostalgia (Blue Peter) and current radio (BBC 6) broadcasts. The interactive aspects with news reading and the weather were particularly good engaging the younger and older generations alike.

Booking the tour of the studios as part of a birthday trip to the area, this was the highlight of our weekend. We were staying at the premier inn on mediacity so we'd had a walk around outside the studios, peeking through windows at the sports desk etc the previous day.
