The Doctor Who Experience is an interactive journey which takes your family and the Doctor on a spectacular adventure through time and space! Step through a crack in time and help the 12th Doctor, armed with his trusty Sonic Screwdriver, to escape from his foes, fly the TARDIS and come face-to-face with some of the scariest classic monsters seen on screen including Daleks, Cybermen and Sontarans! Eek! The multi media-experience features exclusive filmed sequences with the Twelfth Doctor the excellent Peter Capaldi and is packed with amazing special effects! This multi-sensory Whovian extravaganza is fun for families and fans alike - and if you're family of fans so much the better!

After your action-packed journey with the Doctor, there is much more to see and explore which compliments the immersive elements nicely and helps calm them down a bit after. They host the world's most extensive collection of original Doctor Who props and artefacts including the entire collection of the various Doctors' iconic costumes all the way from 1963 to the present day, plus the David Tennant TARDIS set and a grand collection of the Doctor's arch foes from through the ages! Cool!

Plus, be sure to use their new green screen feature! Since October 2015 they've had a new fun interactive element where you can film a show sequence yourself using their high tech equipment to achieve your own special effects with you as the star!

You might want to set some pocket money aside for the guidebook that will enhance your visit and they've got a pretty tempting shop too so great stuff for them to spend their own money on.
