BBC Broadcasting House Tour

This event has now finished. Sun Jun 8 2008

Time Out says

These new tours give visitors the chance to see inside the first ever purpose-built broadcast centre in Britain. The building has undergone sympathetic modernisation since it was built in 1932, and the tours highlight surviving art-deco details such as the main reception with mosaic floor and the Eric Gill sculptures found on the building's facade. You can also visit the newly restored Radio Theatre, home to such shows as 'The Goons' and 'The News Quiz', the Council Chamber, where BBC Governors and Board meetings used to take place, and the new digital radio studios where Radio 3 and 4 are recorded. Children should be aged 12+. Booking essential.
