What You Can Expect

'Doctor Who' TV Locations Tour of Cardiff

See a TARDIS on your Cardiff sightseeing and TV locations tour!

Meet your guide at Cardiff Bay and then set off to explore the city aboard your Doctor Who sightseeing bus! Most of the popular science fiction series, as well as several TV spin-offs, have been screened in and around Cardiff, so filming locations are scattered around the city. Stop at some of the best to stretch your legs, take photos and see the locations up close.

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 the pretty neighborhood of Penarth on the outskirts of the city, to see Sarah Jane's home and other shooting locations, 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.
