What is there to do?

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!
