Last Chance To Fly TARDIS


The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay

Why you should get your own Doctor Who Experience before it closes next week

By Mélissa M Azombo

As The Doctor Who Experience shuts its doors next Saturday, Time Made Of Strawberries tells you why you should go while you still have the chance.

It has been no secret since last year, that the Doctor Who Experience planned to shut its doors this summer. Next week, on Saturday 9th September at 17:00, it will shut its doors one final time.

So, make your way there for an interactive experience, where you can fly the TARDIS and help The Doctor save the Universe, in your very own real life Doctor Who adventure. After the walkthrough section, revel in the history of the show, with props, sets, costumes. Don’t blink at creatures from the show, including some of The Doctor’s greatest foes, such as the Daleks, all on display. If yu’re not too afraid, pause at past scenes from the show, displayed on screens for your viewing pleasure. From 1963 – present, it is all there for you to view and pose with.

Why not be like a Cyberman and upgrade your experience, by taking some really cool photos in front of the green screen? You could be a Time Lord on Gallifrey or a companion lost in the vortex. The Experience also have some props on standby, so you can wear a fez like The 11th Doctor or pose with your sonic at the TARDIS doors.

Once you have finished looking at that exhibition, you can take a look at a Target Exhibition, which includes past Doctor Who Magazine covers and artwork, located next to the shop.

Although the Merchandise packages are now completely sold out, there is still plenty of Doctor Who merchandise available for you to take home from the little shop. From Doctor Who badges to posters, T-shirts to DVDs and even an official companion certificate or TARDIS ear-rings, you could take a bit of the show home with you.

Upon exit, while sobbing that you don’t want to go, don’t forget to pick up your very own Doctor Who Experience Souvenir coin. You’ll need £1.01. If you have a bit more time, make sure you look at everything else that’s on display at the entrance, including handprints from people key to the show, including actors Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman, the late Sir John Hurt and showrunner Steven Moffat. If all of that excitement has made you hungry, you can always check out the Doctor Who Experience café, perhaps just after having played a few games of Doctor Who pinball (£1 for 3 games).

While all admission tickets for Sunday 3rd September and the final day Saturday 9th September 2017 have now sold out, there is still plenty of oppotunity to attend from Monday 4th September – Friday 8th September. First admission is 10:00 and last admission 15:30 every day, with the Experience closing at 17:00.

You can book a ticket on the door, though advance purchase is currently advised to avoid disappointment. You can book via the Doctor Who Experience website or See Tickets.

After your visit, you can take the Cardiff tour bus or visit Cardiff Castle with 10% off with your Doctor Who Experience ticket.

However, if you still can not get a ticket, you can always visit the Doctor Who Experience Café, entrance, shop and Target exhibition, before it dematerialises.
