The Doctor Who Experience

Cardiff - Wales' bustling capital city; and the tenth largest city in the United Kingdom. Visitors to this dynamic city will never be short of things to see and do. With the newly built BBC drama village, Cardiff is the second largest media centre in the UK - second only to London. Why not take advantage of this fact and visit the newly opened The Doctor Who Experience situated in Cardiff Bay? A fun day out for general television fans and Whovians alike.

Regular train services link Cardiff with the rest of the UK, and direct services are available from London, Manchester and Holyhead. With prices starting from £23.50, £15.00 and £19.00 respectively (advance purchase) there really is no excuse not to pay Cardiff a visit and see what it has to offer. With something for everyone, you're sure to not be disappointed.

There are numerous options available for getting from the centre of Cardiff to the exhibition. Direct train services run every 12 minutes from Cardiff Queen Street to Cardiff Bay; with a journey-time of a mere four minutes, and only £2.90 for an adult return. Local bus operators Cardiff Bus also issue a day ticket for £3.40, and they run services every 5-10 minutes. Or for the fit-and-able the journey can be walked in around 15 minutes. Adult entry tickets to The Doctor Who Experience start from £13.

Following on from your Dr Who Experience (please allow 1.5 hours), why not head back into Mermaid Quay (Cardiff Bay) where Cardiff's Visitor Centre is situated, and take a stroll around the numerous filming locations used in both Dr Who and Torchwood? Bus and walking tours of these locations are also available at a cost.

If you've had enough sci-fi for one day, why not pop in to one of the many pubs or cafes along the waterfront for some refreshment? Recharge your batteries before heading back out to do some shopping, visiting one of Cardiff's many museums or art galleries, or a spot of ten-pin bowling in the Red Dragon Centre.
