British TV series Doctor Who debuted in 1963 and has been airing new episodes for decades, with legions of dedicated sci-fi fans around the world. Here are a few spots where you can follow in the footsteps of the space-traveling Time Lord while visiting London. 


The London Eye

The London Eye is famous as one of London’s most iconic attractions, but it’s also known by Doctor Who fans as the transmitter for the Nestene Consciousness in the 2005 episode “Rose.” Eagle-eyed fans will also remember the London Eye from the first episode of the revived series, when the Tardis lands nearby.


Trafalgar Square

Doctor Who has been battling the Daleks across London for decades, and long-time fans may even remember their arrival at Trafalgar Square in 1964. Here, admire famous landmarks such as Nelson’s Column, then perhaps take in nearby Whitehall Place (featured in the “Children of the Earth: Day Three” episode) and Horse Guards Road, where the Tardis landed in “The Bells of Saint John.”


Southwark and Shakespeare’s Globe Theater

Shakespeare’s Globe Theater in Southwark was made famous on the small screen in “The Shakespeare Code,” when Martha and the 10th Doctor—played by David Tennant—take in a performance of “Love's Labour’s Lost” in Elizabethan London. Hear behind-the-scenes stories about the show and enjoy sweeping views from the theater along the banks of the Thames River on a special Doctor Who tour in London.


St. Paul’s Cathedral

Directly across the Thames River from the Globe, the striking exterior of St. Paul’s Cathedral and the streets nearby have appeared in many Doctor Who episodes over the years. Walk up St. Peter’s Street or Ludgate Hill, where the Cybermen marched in1968’s famous episode “Invasion.”
