Radio Times publishes two FREE TV Walks guides

Fancy walking in the Time Lord’s footsteps? Dedicated Whovians can take a short walk around Cardiff Bay to take in key locations from the programme with Radio Times’ free TV Walks guide.

This week’s Radio Times comes with a free TV Walks guide – which includes a walk around Cardiff Bay, a pivotal setting for Doctor Who and Torchwood.

Free with the next two issues of Radio Times (on sale 14 Feb and 21 Feb) are two special walking guides, based on favourite TV locations: Radio Times TV Walks Part 1 and Part 2.

Whether it’s visiting Cheshire’s Lyme Hall, scene of Colin Firth’s dip in the lake as Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, or exploring the Doctor Who setting of Cardiff Bay, Radio Times’ TV Walks are perfect for readers that like to get out and about.

Each walk comes with an easy-to-follow map, a description of the route and what was filmed there, and details on how long the trip will take and the distance covered.

TV Walks Part 1 (free with Radio Times, 14 February) covers Downton Abbey (Hampshire), Doctor Who (Cardiff), Countryfile’s John Craven (Farndale, North Yorks), Monarch of the Glen (Strathspey, Scotland), Pride and Prejudice (Cheshire), The Darling Buds of May (Pluckley, Kent), Inspector Morse (Oxford), Cranford (Lacock, Wiltshire) and Last of the Summer Wine (Holmfirth, West Yorkshire).

TV Walks Part 2 (free with Radio Times, 21 February) covers Doc Marten (Cornwall), Victorian Farm (Acton Scott, Shropshire), Lovejoy (Suffolk), Countryfile’s Julia Bradbury (Borrowdale, Cumbria), Poirot (Castle Combe, Wiltshire) and The Prisoner (Portmeirion, Wales).

Radio Times is on sale every Tuesday, priced £1.40. Radio Times’ TV Walks supplements were produced with help from Countryfile magazine.

    Whenever I’m with friends in London, I can’t help but talk about locations where Doctor Who has filmed over the years. I feel like a fricken tour guide once I start talking about Daleks crossing the bridge near Big Ben or Cybermen going to the steps with St.Paul’s behind them.

    I bet “Brit Tours” are not to pleased with this ! They operate a guided walk/tour of Dr Who locations in and around Cardiff already for a fee.

    That said, The Cardiff locations are not that far apart and fairly easy to spot too.
