The museum was a nice touch, with a staff member on hand with great knowledge of the props, quite a few of which were genuinely in the show. My quibbles however lie with the shop itself. A lot of things are massively overpriced - a...More

The Who Shop is packed with lots of Dr Who memorabilia and fan favorites. Lots of t-shirts, posters, sonic screwdrivers, some jewelry (selection can be better), and more. The items are a bit pricy. The shop is at the east end of London (Zone 4),...More

I’m so glad we made our way to this shop. It has everything you can imagine including actual show props. It’s easy to get to with the tube and a quick trip on the coach. You’ll be there before you can say wibbly wobbly timey...More

The little museum behind this shop was really good! Lots of interesting things for a Dr Who-fan. Pleased that photoes were allowed (with a real camera, not with phones). Good shop too. Takes a while to get there from central London but easy to find.

I definitely recommend making the pilgrimage to this amazing shop! They have a little of everything for every fan of the series, both new and old. So much that it's overwhelming at first! Be sure to take some cash with you though. While you can...More

Dropped into the Dr Who Shop today as my husband is a fan and I grew up watching Dr Who. The shop was smaller than I thought it would be although it does have a Museum out the back for £3 each. The Museum is...More

What an Aladdin’s cave of a shop, filled with so much nostalgia from Doctor Who’s rich past, I thought I’d only be in there for 10 minutes but ended up spending 30 minutes looking round.I didn’t get the change to look at the museum but...More

I bought three books from their website and they turned up in very poor condition. When I wrote to their sales email politely, asking if they would be prepared to exchange the books (they had multiple copies in stock), I received a series of irrational,...More

As a Whovian, I think it's well worth it. I grew up in a large city like London, so the location didn't bother me. If you take the "tube" and walk from the nearest stop, you'll see the area, perhaps more than you want. If... More
