Pocket Guide: Cardiff Doctor Who Exhibition Hotels

The Doctor Who Experience is ideal for fans of the long-running TV series of all ages, from wide-eyed children to adults who can remember hiding behind the sofa in their own childhoods. The Experience is situated in Cardiff Bay, so booking a hotel in the centre of Cardiff is the ideal starting point to enjoy this unique venue.

Doctor Who first appeared on British television screens in 1963, and the title character was played by William Hartnell. The groundbreaking science fiction programme gripped the nation from the start and led to many imitators. After Hartnell left the series, he was followed by a further six actors as the Doctor “regenerated”. The series took a break from 1989 until 1996, when it was revived as a feature-length episode film with Paul McGann in the title role. The series was full revived in 2005, with Christopher Eccleston taking on the role. He was replaced by David Tennant, then Matt Smith and finally Peter Capaldi.

The Doctor Who Experience celebrates all that has happened since the series began more than 50 years ago. The venue is located in Porth Teigr in Cardiff city centre, just a short walk from the actual BBC studios where the programme is filmed. The attraction focuses on interaction, to help past and present characters come alive. Fans of the show have long wondered what it’s like to be inside the Tardis, and now they have the chance to look around.

The Experience also offers visitors the chance to go on a walking tour of some of the locations in Cardiff that have been used in the series. Parts of the city have played the parts of a future New York, Victorian London and ancient Colchester, and the tour visits many of them, including a walking trip around Cardiff Bay. This tour also gives visitors the chance to see some of the other landmarks around Cardiff Bay, such as the Millennium Dome, Cardiff International Sports Village and Mermaid Quay, with its many bars and restaurants.

Many of the props that have been used in the Doctor Who series are available to see and interact with in the Exhibition Hall, and it can rightly claim to have the largest collection of original Doctor Who memorabilia and props in the world. The exhibits include the entire collection of costumers worn by the various incarnations of the Doctor since the series began, as well as some of his combatants – including Daleks, of course.

The Exhibition Hall also has three different Tardis sets, which gives visitors the chance to see what goes on behind the scenes during filming, and how the programme’s special effects are created.

With attractions like the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay, alongside the Millennium Stadium, International Sports Village and many other historic and super-modern buildings to see, it makes perfect sense to book a hotel in Cardiff city centre to enjoy your stay. There are many available, in all price ranges, from bijou or boutique to grand and palatial.
