We visited with our 8 year old daughter during Half term. The tours hosts were great - interesting, knowledgeable and amusing. All children got an equal opportunity to join in the activities and there was also plenty to keep parents interested too. We would highly recommend to others.

We toured Mediacity while visiting Manchester and had a lovely time. There were two very knowledgeable guides and we got to see a range of different places, including a working BBC Radio studio, a radio drama recording space, the Blue Peter studio, and a tour experience which allowed us to sit on a mock BBC Breakfast sofa. Highly recommended for... More

Really informative tour around a radio studio, Match of the Day studio and Blue Peter studio. Detailed info about how it all works behind the scenes and a chance to pretend to read the breakfast news. Two great tour guides who really knew their stuff, worked well together and were really funny. Would definitely recommend it!

If the tour had been free or under a fiver then I would of been happier. The guides have a problem,the tour has to be suitable for everyone and that just doesn't work. The first part is in a mock up of the Breakfast Time studio and is geared up for children to have a hands on experience. You are... More

We were a party of 4 adults and did a tour on a sat afternoon. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. John and Lindsey did a great job of engaging everyone in the tour. We particularly enjoyed being in the 6 music studio as we listen to this station a lot. We even got to see some Strictly Come dances dresses... More

We went on the tour today and it was really good fun. The guides were fun, knowledgeable and engaging. The tour took us into a radio studio, Blue Peter studio, the large area they film shows like the Voice, as well as a sound effect room and finally a mock up news desk, weather desk. Highly recommend
