Doctor Who Experience, Cardiff, Wales, UK
It’s hard to describe what the Doctor Who Experience is without giving too much away but it really does feel like stepping into an episode of Doctor Who. You even get to fly the TARDIS! The interactive adventure is followed by an exhibition of the world’s biggest collection of original Doctor Who artefacts, including the costumes of all the 11 doctors, props and sets used in the show and a whole bunch of monsters.
The official website tells you to allow up to 1,5 hours for a visit, but if you want to be thorough and really explore the exhibition in full detail it can take even longer. Oh and if you’re anything like us, allow an extra half an hour (and loads of extra cash…) for the gift shop at the end of the tour. Yes, it’s a dangerous place.
All in all, this is definitely a must-see destination for any Doctor Who fan and worth every penny.
Pro-tip: If you’re in a big crowd, not everyone will get their hands on those TARDIS controls. If you want to be one of the lucky pilots, make sure you’re in the first third of people leaving the “museum” room.
