Rated 4.5 out of 5 based on 23 Feefo user ratings.

Prepare yourself for an intergalactic adventure as we take you on a private 4 hour tour of Doctor Who Cardiff Locations where much of the show has been filmed since its return in 2005.

For more than 15 years production of the Doctor Who TV series has been based in Cardiff, the capital of Wales. With its diverse architecture and landscapes Cardiff and South Wales has been a vital component in creating the amazing worlds that the famous Time Lord inhabits.

The Doctor Who Cardiff tour is a great way to experience the Welsh capital and its neighbouring regions, as you visit areas of Cardiff such as the Bay, National Museum of History and Llandaff where some of the most memorable Doctor Who locations (as well as spin offs Torchwood and Sarah Jane Adventures) are situated.

You will get a chance to wander through Amy Pond’s village featured in the first episode starring Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor, visit Farringham village, the hospital featured in New Earth, as well as explore locations from more recent episodes with Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor. Other sites

Our range of private tours featured below allows you to explore these filming locations on a day and time of your choice.  Accompanied by your own driver plus a knowledgeable Doctor Who guide you will be able to see these locations easily and learn about both Doctor Who as well as Cardiff history.

On each of the tours you’ll learn how the show is made, get trivia about some of the stars from the show and have the chance to get out of the vehicle on several occasions, stretch your legs, take pictures and see the locations up-close.

All tours include walking around the city centre and Cardiff Bay to see where many of the filming locations can be found. The tour will finish back in central Cardiff. Customer Reviews
