How to get tickets to TV shows in London

Going to see a live recording of a TV show can be a cheap, joyous and entertaining night (or day) in London. There are several studios in London that offer free tickets to chat shows, comedy shows, panel shows, and more.

General advice for study audiences

As a general rule, most London television studios prefer their audience members to be at least 16 years old. Check the age limit before reserving tickets. Most companies will ask you to bring a photo ID to the studio in order to enter.

Most shows take 1.5-2.5 hours to record, so be patient and wait a long time as you usually can’t move from your seat once recording starts. The studio staff will do their best to keep you entertained during set changes or if there are any technical issues that could delay the procedures.
