Doctor Who Walking Tour of London

After meeting your guide in central London, set off on your Doctor Who tour of the city. While much of the everyday filming for the sci-fi series took place in Cardiff, many iconic Doctor Who scenes were filmed on the streets of England’s capital. See a selection of the best while exploring neighborhoods like Borough, Southwark, the City of London and the South Bank.

As you walk, your guide will entertain you with fun snippets of trivia about the intergalactic time lord, who travels back in time exploring the universe. Learn about his TARDIS – the 1960s-style London police box used as a time-traveling machine – and hear about key characters such as Clara Oswald and Madam Vastra.

Visit sites used recently like Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, which featured in The Shakespeare Code episode, as well as filming locations from older episodes such as Remembrance of the Daleks, filmed in 1988. Stop for photos in John Adams Street, where the Prime Minster's house was recreated for the show and recollect the episode when the iconic building was infiltrated by the ruthless Slitheens – a family of criminal extraterrestrials from the planet Raxacoricofallapatorius.

Hear insider gossip about the cast, learning little-known secrets about actors who have played the coveted role of the Doctor. Chat about popular faces like Matt Smith, David Tenant and Christopher Eccleston, and compare them with earlier actors such as William Hartnell who starred in the first-ever episode.

Having explored the key filming sites around London, work your way to Waterloo station where your tour finishes.

Great experience with super guide Dallas! We really enjoyed it -from DR Who fans from New York

Interactive, informative and fun it was everything I was hoping to get out of a nerd culture experience In London, and it did a wonderful job of showing me the city with respect to what is of interest to me. I also found it to be a great way to connect with people of similar interest in a foreign country and I absolutely would go again. One of my personal highlights of London

Huge fun and lots of things I didn't know/ hadn't seen before. Lovely group as well, and Dallas was a fantastic guide. Great balance of old and new series stuff, and enjoyable I believe for über-nerds as well as casual viewers. Will definitely recommend this - and i really can't think why I waited so long to do it.

Our guide, Dallas, was so much fun and so informative. I booked this tour for my son and granddaughter and thought I was just going along for the walk. Dallas covered Dr. Who locations, engaged the whole group and also shared historical and hysterical stories . . . . all this and a walking tour of London!
