If you are a media junkie like myself, you will find MediaCityUk a place just as magical as Disneyland! In an interactive and entertaining tour, BBC tour guides take visitors through MediaCityUK sharing with them secrets from audio and visual special affects to behind the scenes of where the magic happens. The BBC tour staff takes visitors through places where celebrities such as Ellen, Michal Bubble to Madonna and Maria Carey performed and were interviewed at.
On the BBC tour the friendly tour guides insight guests on how TV and radio work by visiting various BBC studies, a Radio 6Music studio, the BBC Breakfast studio and BBC Sport.
A tour of the special effects used on BBC Sport.
At the end of the tour they give visitors a go at making their own news and weather bulletin in an interactive studio. This portion of the tour was where I was able to achieve my childhood dream of being be an anchor woman for a moment.
If you plan on visiting or stopping through Manchester, this studio tour is a must! To purchase tickets for a BBC tour of MediaCityUK book here.
