BBC Television Centre – The Bright Lights of London

The BBC Television Centre was opened on the 29th of June 1960, and is the oldest television studio in England after Granada Studios. Located at White City in West London, the BBC Television Centre is one of the most easily recognisable buildings in London. The main building, affectionately titled the “doughnut”, is a circular structure with offices, engineering areas and studios surrounding it. At the centre of the courtyard is a statue of Helios, the Greek God of the Sun designed by TB Huxley-Jones. The statue is meant to symbolise the light radiating from televisions across the globe.

Tours to the television centre typically last between one and a half hours to two hours. In addition to giving visitors an exclusive insider’s peek into what goes on behind the scenes, you will also get the opportunity to view dressing rooms used by some of the most famous stars of television. Of course there is also the chance that one might bump into one of the celebrities who work there. The centre also hosts a vast collection of memorabilia from iconic programmes such as Doctor Who and EastEnders.

The tours operate from Monday to Saturday, and there is a special discount for students and families. Children under the age of nine are not allowed on the tour. More information on the tour can be found at the BBC website. The site also contains information on how people can get to join the audience during the filming of various shows. The centre can be easily accessed by the tube and by bus.
