Doctor Who Experience

When you travel to Cardiff Bay you can already see the instalment – the big blue building on one side of the Bay.

The Experience is near the BBC studios, where the series is filmed. Visitors do have the opportunity to get a unique peek onto some of the series best props and costumes here!




The building itself is worth a look as well. There is a small bar, offering drinks and snacks. A couple of interesting monsters from the series are in the main hall as well and through a set of stairs one can enter the Doctor Who store. I have, however, noticed that the store is quite pricy and if you’re interested in the DVD’s sold there, you get a better bargain if you buy them someplace else.

But there are also some other interesting goods such as posters and T-shirts!



You can buy a ticket in the hall and then enter the line to the left. Depending on how busy it is, you have to wait quite long. So better be in for some possible queuing.



Once you enter, you walk into the first part of the Experience – the interactive part. This part changes from time to time and visitors do see a new video and new details. Filming nor taking photos is allowed here!

The other area is the exhibition hall. Here you can take photos as much as you want, and it’s a perfect background if you want to hop into your favourite costume from the series and take some photos there. Photos in costume are allowed any time!



There are also other special tickets which you can buy there or through the official homepage (



I was there twice so far and I always enjoyed it a lot. It’s a great instalment and just perfect for fans of the series!
