Site Description The Doctor Who Experience opened in Porth Teigr in 2012. The attraction, which features sets, props and memorabilia from the BBC series, closed in London in February 2012 to make way for its move to Cardiff Bay. It is the first interactive Dr Who exhibition, expected to attract up to 250,000 visitors a year.

The specially-constructed building, measuring 3000m square, was designed and installed by UK-based theme park design and installation company, Sarner Ltd.
