Hubby and I are both DW fans and the DW experience certainly didn't disappoint! The interactive part of the tour was fantastic and we spend a good hour looking at the props. Highly recommend if you're a Dr Who fan!

Being a moderate fan of this tv series, I found this attraction a good and enjoyable visit. The walk through was very entertaining. After the walk through, you are then free to walk around and take photos of the exhibitions. I won't spoil it and say what's on display, but it is time consuming looking around. Over all I felt...

We went here for one of our boy's birthdays and bought the package that included the t shirt for both of them. The interactive experience that you go in to initially was wonderful - our boys got to 'drive' the tardis!! As doctor who fans we all enjoyed the exhibits and the Experience is to be Congratulated for some innovative... More

This was the main reason that me and my best friend visited Cardiff bay for the weekend and we were not dissapointed. This attraction is brilliant for fans of Doctor Who. The interactive segment was FANTASTIC and my favourite part of the whole thing. Loved seeing all the props too!

We loved every second of this. The first part of the tour was brilliant and exceeded all our expectations. The second half was a Dr Who fans paradise and we spent a good two hours in the experience. Brilliant attraction!

Very well put together. Plenty of interaction with the visitors. Exhibition was fascinating, I had forgotten how many of the Drs enemies there had been. Would have been even better if there were characters mingling with the visitors for photo opportunities.

My two boys and I love Dr Who, but since David Tennant left the show, my wife hasn't watched (you can guess why she started watching Dr Who!) however, she really enjoyed herself. The experience is just finishing the 'Matt Smith' version of the Doctor, and the kids loved going onto the Tardis set during the interactive show. We'll pop... More

Initial part, without giving away too many spoilers, puts you in a little adventure which has maybe five areas - excellent! Then there is the exhibition, which was good but I expected a lot more in it. Amongst exhibits, there was a video about a lady who had not been creditted for doing the audio work (in Dr WHo &...

If you have any interest in Dr Who you just cannot miss this experience, the ease of which is fantastic. Great to wonder around, listening to the official guide, watching the illuminated faces of other fans, children's excited voices and parents reminiscing. The Daleks, Weeping Angels, Costumes, everything was just super.

Visited on a rainy day and booked in for the first tour. It wasn't crowded, so we had time and space (excuse the pun) to wander about and take our photographs. The visit compared well with similar attractions but we gather it will be updated later on this year to accommodate the new Doctor. A tip for drivers without sat-nav... More
