BBC Television Centre Tours

On a tour of London\'s BBC Television Centre, you will see behind the scenes of the most famous Television Centre in the world. You may experience areas such as the News Centre, Weather Centre, dressing rooms and studios, but due to the operational nature of the building, guarantees cannot be made. However this does mean we can plan your exact itinerary around what is happening on the day so no two tours are ever the same.

Please note that visitors must be 10 years and over and tours must be pre-booked. Television Centre is a large complex and tours involve a lot of walking.

This is the fifth cathedral to be built on the site. It was designed by Sir Christopher Wren after its predecessor was destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666. St Paul's has been the setting for many historic occasions, including the marriage of the late Diana, Princess of Wales to HRH the Prince of Wales.

It has become a symbol of national endurance, particularly since it survived World War II bombing while many surrounding buildings were destroyed. The nave, transepts and choir are in the shape of a cross, as in a medieval cathedral, but the majestic interior reflects the Baroque movement in architecture.
