    Unlike the glitz of Universal Studios, Paramount is the picture of old Hollywood. It should as it's located in "old Hollywood."

    While it helps, as I did, to have someone on the inside provide a real tour of the various lots and studio sets, you can stll get the feel of what it's like to film a movie or TV show.

    Studio Tours

    Studio tours are a fun thing to do. We toured NBC studios in hopes of seing a taping of The Tonight Show but we missed out - get there early morning as there is a line for tickets. We saw a soap opera actor (forget his name) and the world's leading raw oyster competitive eater (he was from Louisiana). He was going to be on the show with Jay Leno later in the day. Any studio tour should be fun.

    Ready to check into Bates Motel and relive the horror of Alfred Hitchcock's movie masterpiece "Psycho"? At the Universal Studio tour, you can see the Psycho House and the Bates Motel that was the actual set of the movie filmed by Paramount.

    It is part of your visit of Universal Studio in LA. So enjoy and relive the movie.

    Walk in the star studios

    The tour we took was way back in 1995. We'd driven up from San Diego for the day and this was one of the things we wanted to do.

    NOTE: UNDER 10 YEARS OLD ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE TOUR.

    $35 for the guided tour. (No one under age 10 is allowed on the tour). Tickets to tapings of TV shows are free.

    Guided tours of the studio are given Monday through Friday, at 10 AM & 2 PM. No tours on weekends or holidays. The tours last two hours. The box office that distributes free tickets is open Mon Fri: 8 AM to 4 PM.

    You kind of stumble across the PP lot as it's off a main road and hidden by bushes, but it's easily recognisable once you see the black iron gates and the 'Paramount Pictures' sign. Completely unsure which movies were/are being made here, but will find out and post. They no longer run tours of the place, which is a shame, but there's always Universal Studios. Worth driving up to the gates to have a look at the sign and see what you can. Security will let you through the gates, but only for you to have to turn around and exit (as we did). You do get to see more this way though - just play the stupid tourist card!

    The Main Gate at Paramount

    Paramount Pictures has been existence for 91 years. The company was founded on July 12, 1912, when Adolph Zukor founded the production company Famous Players Film Corp. Later, the name was changed to Paramount Pictures and the studio has been responsible for some of the best and best-loved movies of all time. Over the years, Paramount has made more than 3,000 films. Paramount Pictures is the only major motion picture studio that is actually located in Hollywood. It is easily distinguished by its large, white gates-- a great photo op!

    Paramount no longer offers tours to the public, but you can still drive past the studio and admire its expressive exterior. You can park across the street and take photos of it. The main gate is located at the corner of Melrose and Windsor.
