Welcome to The Tardis – The Doctor Who Experience

Doctor Who Experience – Welcome to The Tardis

What’s one of the first things any Doctor Who fan would want to do? I suspect to visit the Tardis – Well now you can, for a limited time this summer the Doctor Who experience are offering visitors the chance to tour the actual set used in the currant series, not in the experience, but in the very studio at Roath Lock where the programme is filmed.


Thanks to BBC Worldwide we were lucky enough to be in one of the first parties to step foot on the set, needless to say its an experience not to be missed, the set is completely enclosed so the thought that you are in studio at all soon disappears, in fact the outside world suddenly seems very distant – its somewhere where you feel you want to stay for a while.

I think in this case we will let the pictures do the Talking…


Also on offer are walking tours to filming locations around Cardiff, its actually quite fascinating finding out how some of the buildings and interiors were used, not just for Doctor Who but Torchwood as well. From Derelict buildings to Sand dunes its well worth adding this attraction to your day out. We have not included any pictures of the tour as they may somewhat spoil the surprise of how buildings and interiors are used. Its much better to see them for yourselves.

The Experience also has a number of new addition from series 7b so a return visit is well worthwhile if you havnet been for some time. You cna see some of the more recent additions along with some of the long standing props in the gallery below.

Press release…
