  • I've been a fan of Doctor Who since 1982. The Doctor Who Experience isn't just a cash cow for the BBC, you can tell it has been curated with love for the show. The attention to detail and the ever changing and expanding array of costumes and props makes every visit to Cardiff a uniquely brilliant experience. If you have the opportunity to buy a set tour ticket, I'd highly recommend it, as you'll never forget the first time you set into the real TARDIS. I'm genuinely heartbroken that the Experience will close it's doors forever in September 2017... One day I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.
  • I went there over the Summer for a couple of hours and had a great time. It was cool seeing tons of props and sets from one of my favorite shows and the interactive show that's played for you at the beginning is well acted and has great effects. The gift shop is well stocked with lots of unique items. My only complaint is the upstairs portion is not very well air conditioned and got hot and stuffy. But other than that, I loved this experience!
  • Went with 2 adults and 4 children for a birthday day out. Everyone enjoyed (even my 5 yr old who is not a Dr who fan). Fun interactive tour to start then you go on to a museum where you can wander at leisure. Not a lot of selection to eat at the cafe inside but the snacks we had were good. Overall a lovely day out for all the family
  • Great place to visit if your a big Dr Who fan. Go on an interactive tour to begin with and after you get to see lots of Dr Who props and costumes which are awesome. Only critique I can give it is that it could be changed from time to time as been there 3 times and not much has changed. Well worth a visit before it closes close to the summer.
  • Magical place for all those who like Dr Who and even for those who don't really follow it. The refurbishment they have done this year is very interactive and is much better than before. Highly recommended
