BBC Elstree is a closed set, therefore you are not able to street-view around the location. However, if you Streetview around the outside of the studios, you can see the Hospital Building in the distance.

In the above Street View, you can see the block (top left). The second tower block (to the right) was used as the exterior location of Walford Towers in Eastenders.

Fun fact, the tower block that now houses Holby Hospital used to act as the famous Grange Hill Lower school in the early series. Eastenders is also filmed at BBC Elstree.
