What You Can Expect

Doctor Who Tour of London

Doctor Who TV Locations Tour

After pickup from your hotel, your knowledgeable and friendly local guide will take you by private taxi through central London to see numerous on-site locations where Doctor Who was filmed during the past 50 years. While driving to each site, your guide will fill you in on a bit of London history and stop for photographs at major landmarks. You’ll have multiple stops to purchase food (own expense) along the way.

See where famous scenes with the Time Lord were shot during the filming of “The Chase,” “Dalek Invasion of Earth” and more. Stand on the bridge where the Daleks started their invasion of London, get your picture taken on the spot where Rose and the Doctor stood by the London Eye, and stand outside the building that became 10 Downing Street.

During your private tour, learn fun facts from your guide via trivia questions, and listen to fascinating and eerie science fiction tales of episodes involving Cybermen, Headless Monks, The Silence, River Song and Weeping Angels. Hear anecdotes about those who have played the doctors (and their assistants), from William Hartnell in 1963 to present-day Matt Smith.

Before your private tour ends with drop-off at your London hotel, be sure to get your photograph taken next to the only remaining British police box in London. You’ll notice an uncanny resemblance to the Doctor's time-traveling spacecraft – the TARDIS!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Absolutely fantastic!! Our driver was amazing. He not only showed us locations where Doctor Who was filmed, but he took us all around London and gave us history about those locations--Hyde Park, The BBC, Whitehall Palace, St. James Palace. Harrods, Wamley's,--and even gave us info as to where to eat and the history behind certain coffee shops. I wish I could remember our driver's name--he is a gem and we absolutely loved this tour. We also had our picture taken with a Tardis and a Dalek!

My husband and I traveled to London for the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. One of the absolute highlights of the trip was the Doctor Who Tour. Richard Liddle, who may very well be the best tour guide in the city, met us at the front door of our hotel, precisely on time, with his comfortable and spacious black taxi. Off we were then, first to a location that stands in for 10 Downing Street on many films and TV shows, including Doctor Who. A film crew was there this day, although they wouldn't disclose the name of the movie (maybe the next Bond film). Next stop was Trafalgar Square, then on to the Victoria Embankment, where Rose and the Doctor found the Nestene transmitter, aka the London Eye. We walked around Parliament Square and then drove to the last remaining police box in London at Earl's Court. I thought there would be a crowd here, since it was the actual 50th anniversary, but there were only a pair of fellow nerds from Eastern Europe. We took pictures of each other. Next stop was Kensington Gardens and the Albert Memorial, then on to the BBC. After going through security, we had an opportunity to have a photo op with the official Tardis. Since Mr. Liddle knew I was also a Sherlock Holmes fan, he took us to Wimpole Street, where Conan Doyle lived and wrote in 1891.

This was a fantastic experience, thanks to the incredible London knowledge, and good humor, of our very experienced tour guide.
