Broadcasting House information
The iconic building from which the BBC began radio broadcasting in 1932 and from where all TV and radio broadcasting in London has taken place since early 2013 is open to the public on 1½-hour tours, departing up to nine times per day (but check the website for details).
The tour takes in the huge, state-of-the-art newsroom (where you can have a go at reading the news). You can also produce your own radio play and, on some tours, get a look at the Radio Theatre and also peek behind the scenes at the studios (and live recordings) of the various BBC channels. Pre-booking is essential; no children under 9 are allowed on the tour.
