BBC Birmingham Visitor Centre

BBC Birmingham, The Mailbox, Birmingham, B1 1RF

Have your photo taken with Doctor Who's Tardis or pose behind their Strictly Come Dancing desk at BBC Birmingham Visitor Centre.

Tucked away on Level 3 of The Mailbox is BBC Birmingham's Visitor Centre. Open seven days a week, admission is FREE and there is no need to book. We have an array of outfits and props from BBC TV shows to be discovered. Upstairs you can try your hand at presenting the news or a weather bulletin; a challenge that's not as easy as it looks! Record your efforts and watch them again at home or at school. Also visit the BBC Blue Room where you can see tomorrow's BBC... today. Digital experts will be on hand to guide you through. (Please note: to get a more in-depth experience of BBC Birmingham a tour is highly recommended! We'd love to show you around).



Opening times
