This very-well constructed attraction is a must for any fans of the TV series. Housed in a warehouse on Cardiff Bay, it's easy to get to and good value for money (£14 for an adult). We booked online, but I saw people just turning up. There's a scripted theatrical experience for 30 mins or so with fantastic sets and effects,... More

I loved it. Don't want to give too much away about the experience at the beginning (even if it may have been catered more towards children) but I enjoyed it! The 30 minute adventure was brilliant and fully engaged me. Seeing the exhibition and all the different costumes and props was great. I loved the little touches to everything and... More

We arrived 30 minutes before our time. My husband stood in a small queue, while my son and I looked around at the Doctor Who's hand prints and the daleks (which are my favourites). When we got our tickets we had a browse around the shop before joining the queue to start our Doctor Who experience at 11.30am on Saturday... More

We all enjoyed the dr who experience, definitely worth the money. Would recommend booking in advance as there was only a few spaces left when we arrived.

Fantastic place to see awesome whovian stuff, generally be a geek and cosplay. I love when they put on special events like doing Zygon make up on guests and having monsters walking around. I will be sad to see this place go. Please save it!

Experience is an apt word. The first part of your tour is an amusing trip through some of the Dr. Who Universe. It was interactive and great for kids and enjoyable for adults. It was very cold during this so I would recommend a coat, I don't know if this was because it was mid-February or if it is this... More

We made Cardiff a one- day trip solely for the doctor who experience. Well worth it. The only way it could've been improved is if we coincided our trip with filming. Unfortunately, ''twas not meant to be. If you are on the fence, don't be! It is truly an experience :D I'll only post the one photo so as not... More

So 30 mins interactive experience (no photography) then explore at your leisure the props, tardis and costumes. I was there an hour in total and saw everything and read everything. Gift shop is everything you can buy online. Only down side is there isn't somewhere you can get proper up close to 'drive a tardis' and take a selfie.

Took my daughter who is a big Dr ho Fan and she loved it. Dr Who experience at the start is probably more suited to the younger fans but does have some slightly spooky bits int he dark. The tour guide was good but was hard to hear on occasion and seemed a little bored at times. The museum section... More

This was our second visit, I had to go again before it closed. The first part includes an interactive element that is a little scary at times, especially for small children. My 5 and 7 years old asked to leave during this on our second visit,+++++++++++++ although for some reason they enjoyed it when we first visited in 2015. It's... More
