We had a really great time. Suitable for adults and children alike - our children aged 8, 5 and 3 loved every minute too. Staff were fun and helpful. In the exhibition the staff would offer to take photos of you even though they sold photo memories there. We thought this was a nice touch. A great few hours fun for any Dr Who fan.

Very fun beginning adventure. The exhibits were great- wish more interactive. Store nice, but no 50th Anniversary souvenirs. We took the train from London and took a cab to The Adventure. It is just a short walk along the by to the Millenium Center. Lot's of great Sights & restaurants there. We also took the Brit Movie tours for Doctor Who to fill the day.

This is an excellent venue for families to visit, in the Cardiff Bay area. By booking online you can save around £5 compared to the normal walk up price.

The staff are enthusiastic and pleasant and ensure that everyone is 'really excited' before proceeding with the tour.

The tour is in two parts, the first is accompanied and consists of a visit to the Tardis interior where younger visitors can make adjustments to bring the Tardis back to normal function, before escaping through a tunnel, encountering the Daleks who wish to EXTERMINATE the visits, before the Doctor intervenes. The last part of the accompanied tour is a 3D experience of time travel. Photographs and recording are not allowed on the accompanied part.

The second part is unaccompanied and contains artefacts and diorama across two floors. Photographs are permitted in this section of the exhibition.

There is the opportunity to have a series of Green Screen pictures taken with the Tardis. These can be purchased for £10 for one or £15 for two, with a full set for £25 in a specially provided paper frame.

The centre has an extensive gift shop with a range of souvenirs and gifts to suit a sensible range of budgets. There is also a coffee shop.

Overall the experience taks just over two hours for a cost for a family of 4 for around £40.00.

A fun experience for anyone that is a Doctor Who fan. Be aware that the exhibits only center around the new iterations of the doctors. About 20 minutes was spent on an interactive portion. The rest of the time is spent looking at props from the show.

I knew that I had to see this attraction above anything else upon my arrival to England. I chose to purchase the merchandise package which included some special souvenirs. What a great experience! You are involved with helping the Doctor, flying the TARDIS and encountering some of the more well known villains in the show. It was a once in a lifetime experience that I would participate in again and again. The exhibits with all of the Doctors outfits as well as the outfits of the companions and the various beings that the Doctor has faced was one of my favorite parts. Highly recommend for Whovians old and new!
