Ex-BBC building to become hotel


A former BBC broadcasting centre is to be opened as a luxury hotel at the end of the month.

The Worcestershire-located property has recently undergone a GBP4 million restoration and will open as The Wood Norton on 29 November.

The BBC used the site as an emergency broadcasting centre away from London during the war and has now been converted to 50 rooms and a restaurant.

“The building is steeped in history, having been built originally as a hunting lodge for European Royalty in 1897. It’s since been the home of the BBC for over 60 years, and we’re now looking to create our own piece of history by turning it into a fantastic get-away,” said Oliver Cooke, general manager of The Wood Norton.
