What people are saying about Doctor Who Experience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Day out with the grandchildren On a short holiday in Cardiff with two of our grandchildren we wanted something to off set intensive sightseeing. The Doctor Who experience exactly fitted the bill. We expected some museum type event. Instead we had an interactive experience of the first order. Our 11 and 13 year olds really enjoyed themselves and for that matter so did we. Recommend this to all parents and grandparents. Book online in order to make a substantial saving .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Staff were friendly and informative. In a wheelchair, I was treated very well and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. One minor gripe, the girl in charge of taking us on the adventure, seemed a little awkward and could of been more enthused, but it didn't detract from the enjoyment of the day.The exhibition was completely fantastic, so much to take in and bang up to date!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This event gets better every time This must be the 6th time we've visited the Doctor Who Experience but this was by far the best. Now the guide is part of the show & he really drives the atmosphere. The graveyard was scary! Peter Capaldi is a great doctor & the set up makes you think he is there. Great way to spend half a day & an absolute must for 'Who' fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Might have well been the best thing in the world. When you first look at the experience center it sorta looks big, and fancy and modern, basically just a building, but inside beholds probably the most amazing and maybe the oldest SciFi series creations, props and costumes! I think the Doctor Who Experience is.. by far the closest thing you'll get to Doctor Who.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dr Who what an Experience!! Had a weekend in Cardiff because as a big fan wanted to go to Dr Who Experience, and I wasn't dissapointed, it was GREAT!! Won't spoil it for others who haven't yet been, but first half hour was unexpected but fun, (even for grown up's) any Dr Who fan who hasn't been it's a MUST

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic experience! And not just for nerds! I took my 16 year old Dr Who mad son and although I wasn't looking forward to it, I must admit I really enjoyed myself too.
