The Doctor Who Experience is an interactive attraction in Cardiff where the BBC TV series is made. Inside, you’ll enter the world of ‘The Doctor’, meeting some of the characters from the show. There are plenty of props too and the experience includes specially recorded sequences from the current Doctor Who.
Your visit starts with a time-travelling interactive show which involves some of Doctor Who’s friends and foes. You’ll see Daleks, Cybermen and Sontarans for example. Afterwards you will see the world’s largest collection of original Doctor Who props, costumes and artefacts some from the recent TV shows, but some also dating back to the 1960s. This experience replaces a Doctor Who Exhibition which was based up the road at the shopping centre in Cardiff Bay. Some of the props and costumes from that museum are included in the new attraction, but there are many more in the new facility which is much, much larger.
The Doctor Who Experience is open daily from 10am to 5pm in school holidays but closes on Tuesdays (and sometimes Mondays) during term time. Adult admission is £14 in advance or £16 on the door with discounts for children available and family tickets too (2016 prices).
