The Doctor Who Experience is an attraction based at Cardiff Bay which focuses on the BBC TV Series Doctor Who which is filmed in the city of Cardiff. The attraction is based on the characters and events that are depicted in the TV show and includes specially recorded sequences from the current Doctor Who. It replaces a Doctor Who Exhibition which was much smaller.
Inside the Doctor Who Experience there is an interactive show with special effects which takes you on a journey through time and involves some of the Doctor’s enemies like Daleks and Cybermen. There is also the world’s largest collection of original Doctor Who props, costumes and artefacts some from across the years right from the 1960s to the present day. Some of the props and costumes here used to be based in the old exhibition, but there are many more in the new facility.
The Doctor Who Experience has timed tickets to avoid a backlog and if you book in advance, you will need to select a one hour time slot in which to visit. Booking details can be found via the Dr Experience link towards the bottom of the page. The attraction opens daily from 10am to 5pm in school holidays but closes on Tuesdays during term time. Last entry is at 3.30pm. Adult admission is £13 in advance or £15 on the door with discounts for children available and family tickets too.
