While in LA we took the Grey’s Anatomy set tour and visited with a few of the cast members. It seems I have been missing out on this thing (TV Show) Grey’s Anatomy for quite some time.
I know this long-running ABC TV show has been in production and has won plenty of awards; so what better way to get introduced to the show than to take a Grey’s Anatomy studio tour.
Grey’s Anatomy Set Tour
Recipient of the 2007 Golden Globe Award for Best Drama Television Series and nominated for multiple Emmys, including Outstanding Drama Series, “Grey’s Anatomy” is considered one of the great TV shows of our time.
The high-intensity medical drama, now beginning its tenth season, follows the personal and professional lives of a group of doctors at Seattle’s Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
First, Jessica Capshaw (Dr. Arizona Robbins) explains a little bit about Grey’s Anatomy as well as the cast from outside the Seattle Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital front doors.
From there, we made our way into the home of Drs. Derek Shepard & Meredith Grey. Now, this was the first time I have ever been on any type of set tour. I was amazed by the realistic value it had to a real home.
But with all the break-away walls and the removable ceiling, it felt as though I was actually standing inside Derek and Meredith house.
Jessica walked us through what a typical day on the Grey’s Anatomy set would look like. During our visit, the team was on a break but normally crew or cast would lounge in the home or Grey Sloan Memorial hospital set.
On Set Grey’s Anatomy
I was able to get a good feel of how Grey’s Anatomy runs and was able to get a grasp of the importance of each little piece inside Derek and Meridith’s house. Just like on the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital set, everything had a place on the TV show.
The nurses’ station was pretty cool and seemed like it was really a part of an actual children’s ER.

I get emails all the time asking “how to tour the set of grey’s anatomy set.” I was apart of a media group that was granted access. I do not now if ABC offers a public tour.
