Discover the brilliant BBC Interactive Tour at MediaCityUK Salford. From Blue Peter and Newsround to presenting the weather and seeing what goes on behind the scenes. The Interactive Tour is a perfect day out for kids aged 6 years+

See how your favourite BBC TV and radio shows are filmed and recorded, like the BBC breakfast show with the red sofa, BBC Radio 6, The Voice, Horrible Histories or the Match of the Day studio.
