I love visiting Media City; the broad range of things to do in that area makes it a wonderful destination for TV, theatre,film,art, museum, sport,shopping and watching-the-world go-by-fans. Having done many of those things in Media City, it was time to do the BBC tour....More

As my two are avid fans Of CBBC and Blue Peter in particular, we expected this tour to be great. We were sadly very disappointed. The first and last 10 minutes of the tour were dedicated to CBBC programmes, although we did not get to...More

We visited here this week as a day out for my mum and daughters birthdays, so the ages ranged from 13 years old to 74 years old. The first part of the tour was probably the best where we were taken to a ''mock'' set...More

Walking through a lot of empty studios with little real enthusiasm was disappointing. If the neighbouring Corrie tour can bring a load of cobbles to life, surely the Guides can bring the biggest studio in Europe to life? Also, explain why the main sets (Breakfast/Sport)...More

I'm sorry if you felt our Tour Guides gave you anything less than 100%, this is highly unusual. We do occasionally get critical reviews here on Trip Advisor, but very rarely are they negative about our Guides. I have to say that I am rather...More

I recently went on the BBC Tour of Salford - oh what a huge disappointment and waste of time and money. Firstly, the security staff were so miserable and unfriendly, in fact the whole welcome in the reception area was far from friendly and felt...More

It's very disappointing to hear that you did not enjoy our tour. To see three television studios and a radio studio and still be unhappy, leads me to believe that there was little we could have done to impress you. This is a real working...More

It was a good visit and the tour guides were very informative, it is obviously a working building so hard to see everything but got to see an example of one of the studios that they use to film lots of things. Loved seeing the...More
