You start off with an interactive tour, which while fun, was a little cheesy too (but what episode of Doctor Who isn't?!). It's more aimed for the kids, but it's still really nice to see everything that's a part of the tour (no spoilers here). After that, you have a few large rooms of props such as costumes, different TARDIS... More

One of the best things I have ever experienced. Even for non doctor who fans it would be an incredible day! An interactive tour as if you are in the world of the doctor yourself! No photos are aloud to be taken inside but I can assure you that you don't want to miss visiting this place!

This is 100* better than those cheap crowded old doctor who exhibitions which weren't even ALL about Doctor Who. The doctor who experience is slap bang in the middle of Cardiff, minutes away from several filming locations and seconds away (literally) from the BBC studios and the casualty set. When I went , I paid for the ultimate tour which... More

Given tickets as a Xmas present and was looking forward to going and it didn't disappoint. The first part was a good laugh, great fun but no spoilers. After that walking through sets and costumes was a real trip down memory lane and a good way to revisit your childhood. Took loads of photos of villains past and present and... More

We had a great day here - starting out with the adventure which was great fun (especially for big kids like me!). Lots of costumes, tardises and memorabilia to look at. The staff were very friendly. We arrived 20 minutes before opening and were standing outside in the lashing rain - one of the staff were looking out for early... More

I really enjoyed the tour part - cheesey but fun. Th exhibits were good too, with lots to see. I spent more than I had anticipated in the shop, but that is testament to the quality and range on offer - my hand-signed Tom Baker print being my new pride and joy.

We arrived early ( around 1015) and went in straight away. After the initial queue (to wait for the experience to be ready) we are taken in to a room where you meet your guide. The whole experience/adventure goes from there. I found this to be excellent. They put a lot of effort and thought into it and the guide... More

The tour starts as an interactive walk through the Tardis and sets before free time looking at costumes. Good quality but is it worth £16 entry?

Visited as a treat for my birthday. I'd been looking forward to it but a long while and it did not disappoint. It had a good mix things from both old and new who. Something that I did notice was that I didn't see anything about the master. You would think with the character being just as iconic as the... More
