BBC Newcastle Tour


Our tours are scheduled carefully between our live television broadcasts, you are welcome to come in and have a good look around. The cameras are set for action, the news stories are being prepared and as the clocks count down, you can step into the shoes of a director or try out the presenter's chair.

You'll see for yourself how we make radio shows - we are on air 24 hours a day. It's fast-paced, exciting and we would love to show you!

'The Pink Palace', as the building is affectionately known, is home to Look North, Sunday Politics and Inside Out as well as the radio station BBC Newcastle.

This is the hub of the BBC in the North East and Cumbria and with so many exciting dramas being made in the region - such as award-winning show ‘The Dumping Ground’, ‘Wolfblood’ and ‘Inspector George Gently’ - we have a massive amount to show off! To round things off we have a fully interactive studio where you can have a go making your own TV and Radio Programmes.

We also off a Children’s Interactive Tour of BBC Newcastle for 6-12 year olds please see our website for more details.

The BBC Tours run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10.30am and 1.30pm.
