I saw this on google maps while staying on the area and had to pop for a look, it's so random that it's funny! I used to watch Torchwood but never imagined that people would go this far for a TV character, it's brilliantly cringe!!

As a Who and Torchwood fan I absolutely loved this place. The whole area is a fantastic place to visit and a trip to the Shrine was a must for me!

But it must puzzle visitors who have not heard of Torchwood. Perhaps in more clement weather DVDs of the series are sold nearby.

I’m sorry but it’s time to remove this “attraction”, it pulls the waterfront area down. It’s not maintained, it’s just a shabby bunch of water damaged letters and photos. I know there are people who feel passionate about it but Torchwood was just a TV...More
