Come and enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of BBC Wales's main headquarters in Llandaff and learn more about some of the programmes made at Broadcasting House.

You'll discover how television programmes are made and find out about radio programmes broadcast on BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru. So why not join us for a first-hand television and radio experience? We'll look forward to welcoming you.

Please remember that Broadcasting House is a working building so no two tours are the same but they will always be informative, entertaining and fun.

Please note that drama productions, eg Doctor Who, Casualty and Pobol y Cwm, don't feature in this tour.

The tours take place on the first and third Tuesday of each month.

Please be aware the tours are conducted in Welsh on the third Tuesday of every month. If you would like to book for a Welsh language tour please select BBC Cymru Wales Caerdydd as your event.
