Tickets now on sale for Doctor Who Experience at new Porth Teigr home

Tickets for the Doctor Who Experience, which has a new home in Porth Teigr, have gone on sale this week.

Originally based in Olympia, London, BBC Worldwide's Doctor Who Experience will take visitors on a journey through special effects, sets and memorabilia from the series, including a recreation of the modern TARDIS.

Due to open on 20 July, the exhibition is based near to BBC Cymru Wales' Roath Lock studios, where the new series of Doctor Who is currently being filmed.  Once open, it is set to attract visitors in their thousands to Porth Teigr and the Cardiff region.

Mark Hallett, Development Director of igloo - the development team behind Porth Teigr - says: "We are really excited about the benefits that the Doctor Who Experience will bring to the wider South Wales region in terms of visitor numbers.  We are already seeing increased numbers of enquiries from companies interested in locating their business close to BBC Roath Lock studios and are confident that Porth Teigr will, over time, become an internationally recognised mixed use location, attracting new jobs and investment into Wales."
