We were staying in London and rented a car -a huge risk since we drive on opposite side of road and it was quite foggy. So worth it! We had a great time! Corny tour was just what the Doctor ordered. Loved the great costumes and different versions of TARDIS. Found prices in gift shop reasonable and experience priceless.

We were a little bit apprehensive about visiting, as prepayment with an autistic son in the group can mean you have to leave early or possibly not actual get to enter the site. We arrived on time and the staff opened the side gates to allow us to park our mobility vehicle. If your parking outside its £5 for the... More

Took my mom here who doesn't really watch doctor who and she loved it! Great employees who take you round and really exciting exhibits. Doctor who fans couldn't go to a better place, but you don't have to be a fan to enjoy it.

First to note - this attraction will be moving to London summer of 2017, according to our bus driver that day. My 17 year old son is a big Doctor Who fan, and he was enthralled with all the exhibits of the history of the show. Even the rest of our family, who may not be as into the show,... More

If you are a fan this is a fantastic experience. Well worth the entry fee for a flight in the Tardis. A must when you are in Cardiff

My wife is a big Dr Who fan so was very keen to go before it shuts in Cardiff later this year. I'm not a Dr Who viewer myself. I thought the attraction was not great value for money unless you book through Groupon for a discount. The first part of the exhibition a tour is really more aimed at... More

The Doctor Who Experience offers everything you could wish for both children and fans (Big kids!). On arrival there is an interactive section that I won't spoil for you. This was particularly fun for the children on the tour in our group. The displays of monsters and costumes brought back memories from the past and the new series. I would... More

Spent about two hours here including the tour part which was a bit cheesy and more designed for children. Interesting to see all the costumes and sets and tardis models but at £16 each felt it was a little over priced for the amount of time there and the exhibits they had. However the exhibition may not be open much... More

The interactive, walk round experience was very disappointing for us but once out of there it was very enjoyable with lots to see. We're told the exhibition is closing soon and it did feel like a place that was on it's way. Glad we went though. A cab from city centre cost £7, once out of the exhibition Cardiff bay... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this, especially the interactive part! Brilliant fun. Parking can be found at the millennium centre about a 8 minute walk nearby at reasonable rates. Such a shame this is closing down but I'm happy I got to see it while it was around!
