I visited this with 4 of my grandchildren and they enjoyed it . There was a little film show and there are aliens from the programs and also some merchandise to buy as a momentum of the day.

Having grown up with Dr Who in the 1960s with the likes of Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee I had to visit and relive some of those experiences. Aware of the reboot of the series since 2004 with Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper and having seen some of the more recent editions I was well looking forward to this. First... More

The exhibition was brilliant especially if you are a life-long Dr Who fan as I am.

The photo gallery where you could be photographed with the weeping angels, or on Gallifray was a... More

Got a ticket from my boyfriend as we both like Doctor Who, and we wanted to go before they (maybe) shut down. It is definitely worth a visit, even though the interactive part is a teeny bit silly. But it was nicely done, and it was fun to she some of the costumes and so afterwards!

The Tardis tour (an optional extra, outside of production schedule) is a must. The tour itself is essentially just going to see the real life tardis set, but our guide, Nerys, was fantastic. She was relaxed and approachable, as well as very knowledgable. She made everyone feel comfortable which created a friendly and chatty group. Her confidence and humour made... More
