Children's Tour of Television CentreBBC Television Centre is closing in early 2013, and tours will cease on 22nd February 2013.

Visit the studios where Newsround is recorded and play with the props of your favourite CBBC programmes on the Children's Tour of Television Centre behind-the-scenes at BBC Television Centre, the Beeb's White City headquarters. You can visit the garden of the world's longest-running children's television series - we're talking about Blue Peter, of course - get involved in the interactive studio and become TV characters 'Diddy Dick' and 'Diddy Dom'. You can even peek inside the dressing rooms of the BBC stars and - if you're lucky - you may even get to see some programmes being recorded. Because Television Centre is a working office, what you'll see - and who you might bump into in the corridors - depends on the daily changing schedule. The Children's Tour of Television Centre is for children aged 6 to 11 years and lasts one and a half to two hours.
