Doctor Who Experience Open to Schools!

The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff is the perfect place to take children, and aside from offering a 20% discount on tickets for students, the BBC has opened up the interactive event to schools.

Tickets for primary and secondary school children are £6, with teachers coming in free for every five and ten paid student tickets respectively. Additional teachers can pay just £8 to get in.

Aside from this, the Doctor Who Experience offers free recce visits for teachers, in order to plan their days and a risk assessment is available on their official website. There’s a cafe on site, offering hot and cold meals, and special schools’ rooms.

It’s a great place to learn about the making of the show and similar productions, and is truly inspirational, right next to the BBC Wales studio at Roath Lock. If there are any children out there looking at a potential career in television, the Experience is the perfect place to visit.

And, of course, apart from being educational, it’s fantastic entertainment! There are Daleks, Weeping Angels, Cybermen, the Silence, an Ice Warrior, Sontarans – and five TARDIS interiors!

The Doctor Who Experience can take up to two hours, with a half-an-hour walkthrough, and a free-flow exhibition which you can browse through for up to an hour-and-a-half.

You can find out more about the Doctor Who Experience here, or visit their page exclusively dedicated to school visits.
