Where are we going today?

Ever wondered how the picture on your television screen is all put together so you can enjoy it? At CNN Studios you can find out!

CNN coverage shapes the world with how, and what, they broadcast, and this exciting and fascinating family day out gives kids and adults alike a look at the history of the CNN News Group Networks. It also gives a look at the coverage that they have created of the events that shape our world.

Exploring their state of the art studios that are responsible for these iconic broadcasts that are seen by over 1 billion people around the world - what an unusual and fun experience!

There are two main tours that you can take at the CNN Studios. The first is the Morning Express Tour, where you can go behind the scenes of that popular morning show, Morning Express.  The tour will take you on a tour of the actual HLN control room (pretty cool!), as well as a fun souvenir picture of your visit, and a fun mug!

Not only that, if you are lucky you might have that opportunity to see a show live in action, with their host Robin Meade. Now that WOULD be newsworthy for your family day out!

You other tour option is the Inside CNN Tour, where you get to go inside their impressive HD Studio 7, where most of the network's daytime broadcasting takes place. A visit to the CNN and HLN newsrooms included? Why not!

Countdown in the CNN Studios to live…in 5….4….3….2…1…..and we’re on AIR!

Monday to Sunday 9am to 5pm.

All year round, but closed Easter, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day

Teachers corner

What a great experience for kids! They more than welcome teachers and students, so just give them a call to arrange your tour. .

Any Top Tips?

Kids of all ages are allowed on the tour, so when you're purchasing tickets, please mention that your party will include a small child..

Doing our bit

CNN always try and accommodate all who visit, but sometimes if there is a breaking news story, they have to go with their priority of delivering the news to the country, so your tour might be rescheduled in this event. But it just shows how dedicated CNN are to their news! .

Need a little extra help?

The tour is a 55 minute walking tour, which involves 8 flights of stairs. There are elevator assisted tours 4 times a day, but they sell out quickly so make sure you book ahead - at least 72 hours for accessibility assistance. .

Can I get one of those?

As part of your tour, you get to take home (included in admission) a mug and a souvenir photo! .

They always have special offers so it's worth checking back for it! .

    My husband and I took his out of town family to do the CNN Studio Tour last year and it was pretty neat. We both took a day off of work to do the tour and it was great because it wasn't too crowded. The only down side to going on a weekday is that there were 2 big school groups with us... and let's just say those teenagers were not interested in staying with the group (which in turn slowed us all down because we couldn't proceed through certain doors without until everyone had caught up). The overall tour was cool because you got to see a little...Read More

    The tour was informative and the good was quite good at keeping me entertained. You have to be sure to look down into the main floor of the building. It's a map and I had no idea. Really cool
