VENUE: The London Studios, Upper Ground, London SE1 9LT.
TIME: The studio doors open at 6.15pm. No admittance after 6.30pm. We estimate the recording to be finished by 8.45pm.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT: BY TRAIN and TUBE: The nearest station is Waterloo. Exit the station, and follow the signs for the National Theatre and the IMAX. If you use the underpass, pass the IMAX and walk up towards the National Theatre. Use the tunnel with the blue walls. Turn right on Upper Ground (this is the name of the road). Pass the IBM building. The London Studios are the next building after that. The audience entrance is clearly marked by a sign on the pavement, via the black gate at the side of the building. The studio is about 10 minutes walk from the station.
DRIVING DIRECTIONS: The London Studios is located on Upper Ground near Waterloo Station. There is an NCP car park, in Cornwall Road, which is almost opposite. Please note that some SatNav devices and internet sites are currently giving incorrect driving directions to the studio's postcode. We suggest you use the road name (Upper Ground) rather than the postcode.
DRESS CODE: As you, our audience, will be featured on screen, do feel free to dress to impress! Smart, dressy,'s up to you! Do feel free to get some colour in your outfits so that you can spot yourselves on the telly! Clothes prominently displaying brand names will not be permitted, and black clothing should be avoided.
ADMISSION: Entry is subject to studio capacity. We do over-issue tickets by a percentage to compensate for inevitable no-shows. While we hope to accommodate everyone, we suggest that you aim to arrive early to avoid disappointment. Seating for ticket-holders is allocated on a first-come first-served basis. We shall be there to meet you from 5.15pm onwards. When you arrive, join the main queue so that you can be checked in and issued numbered wristbands to gain access to the studio. Occasionally there is more than one show taping, so please ensure that you join the correct line. We shall work our way along the line and issue each audience member with their wristband so that, if you would like to and there is sufficient time, you may leave the site. From time to time, there are production & priority guests who enter the studio first, but we then admit people to the studio according to the wristband numbers, so, if you do nip off for a drink, make sure you are back in your place in the line for the doors opening time! You may not collect wristbands for others. If members of your party arrive at different times, they will not be allowed to join each other further in the queue. To be as fair as we can to everyone, we ask everyone to join the end of the line at the time that they arrive.
ACCESS: If any of your party have mobility problems, it would help us to have advance notification to ensure that their visit is as comfortable as possible. Please call 020 8684 3333 or email
OTHER SHOWS: If you are interested in booking tickets to come along and see other tv shows being recorded, you will find details and online application forms on our site at
