What You Can Expect
As you travel, your guide will entertain you with fun facts and trivia about the intergalactic time lord, who travels back in time exploring the universe in his TARDIS – a 1960s-style London police box – with his companion.
Stop for a walk through the set of Amy Pond’s village, where scenes from the first episode with Matt Smith as Doctor Who were filmed, and then see sites nearby from popular spin-off series like Torchwood – a popular program about a team of extraterrestrial investigators.
In between seeing screening locations, look out for other top Cardiff attractions while exploring the city. Pass National Museum Cardiff, where collections of archaeology and botany are housed, and see the impressive Millennium Stadium where the Welsh rugby team play.
Visit surrounding areas of Cardiff featured in the show, and then head to Llandaff, a town outside of Cardiff that was featured as the town of Leadworth – used in the 11th Doctor Who series starring Matt Smith.
After exploring Cardiff and the surrounding area, finish your tour back at the start point.
Matt did a great job with the tour. We were taken to a vast majority of the sites used for the show. He had great knowledge, insight, and gossip regarding DW. For those who are fans of the show, I'd recommend it to everyone!!
Most excellent! Our guide was tops! Made the show all the more real and it was amazing how they used some really basic areas to make some wonderful shows! Highly recommend this!
Absolutely brilliant! Fantastic tour and our guide, Matt, was very knowledgeable and funny! This is a MUST for any Doctor Who fan!
We enjoyed how knowledgeable and pleasant the guide was... never realized how very much of DR Who is filmed in Cardiff! Great time.
I am torn between 'worth doing' and 'recomended' for this event. I found the tour informative although it was sometimes hard to understand the tour guide's accent and mumbling of words. I wanted him to be more confident in his presentation and therefore more engaging. He certainly knew his stuff! The tour requires a great deal of familiarity with Dr. Who series and in my opinion it is highly recomended for 'die hard fans'. Lessor mortals might struggle to remember all the referred scenes. The video display in the bus helped memory recall.
The tour and tour guide was really fantastic he was so nice and informative. However the bus driver was pure dire he constantly complained and we had to go back early and couldn't stop at Sarah Jane's house. I was so disappointed as I really wanted to see it. The driver said that if we got out then he would not let us back in. Absolutely disgusting. This really spoiled my trip
I'm not a Dr Who fan but my wife who came with me on the tour is a huge fan. She felt the tour dragged on quite a bit and could've taken half the time and been a better tour. We felt some of the stops to get off the bus to take photos (in which only one or two people in the tour did anyway). For instance we would stop at a house and end up taking more time than required to get everyone off the bus to take a photo and then get everyone back on. Some of the places people couldn't really take photos because the home owners weren't keen to have the tour there.
Would work better if it incorporated the Dr Who Experience exhibit as well.
