Yalding House is a building at 152–156 Great Portland Street, London, United Kingdom owned by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) which from 1952 until 2013 housed the corporation's music department. The BBC Central Music Library was located on the ground floor and basement: the building's former role as a car showroom made it ideal for the heavy shelving required to store the collection. The BBC Third Programme, later renamed Radio 3, was also based at Yalding House.
On 14 December 2012, Radio 1 broadcast its last ever show from Yalding House which was The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw.
Yalding House contains five studios which were used to broadcast shows on Radio 1 and 1Xtra.
- Studio Y1 - Was a small studio used mainly for production.
- Studio Y2 - Was the studio where The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw, The Official Chart with Reggie Yates, Scott Mills and Greg James came from.
- Studio Y3 - Was the studio where Fearne Cotton, Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens came from.
- Studios Y4&Y5 - Were both used by 1Xtra generally, although were occasionally used by Radio 1 if needed.
