Know More about this tour

After pickup from your hotel, your knowledgeable and friendly local guide will take you by private taxi through central London to see numerous on-site locations where Doctor Who was filmed during the past 50 years. While driving to each site, your guide will fill you in on a bit of London history and stop for photographs at major landmarks. You’ll have multiple stops to purchase food (own expense) along the way.

See where famous scenes with the Time Lord were shot during the filming of “The Chase,” “Dalek Invasion of Earth” and more. Stand on the bridge where the Daleks started their invasion of London, get your picture taken on the spot where Rose and the Doctor stood by the London Eye, and stand outside the building that became 10 Downing Street.

During your private tour, learn fun facts from your guide via trivia questions, and listen to fascinating and eerie science fiction tales of episodes involving Cybermen, Headless Monks, The Silence, River Song and Weeping Angels. Hear anecdotes about those who have played the doctors (and their assistants), from William Hartnell in 1963 to present-day Matt Smith.

Before your private tour ends with drop-off at your London hotel, be sure to get your photograph taken next to the only remaining British police box in London. You’ll notice an uncanny resemblance to the Doctor's time-traveling spacecraft – the TARDIS!

  • We really enjoyed this tour. Besides visiting the Doctor Who sites, the driver also included up close visits to some areas that we would never have seen as closely without this tour. We visited the Globe theater and saw some gorgeous views of landmarks in London. We also visited the last working police box in London and the BBC headquarters. The driver was very personable and polite.

  • The tour included pointing out some of the main Doctor Who filming locations, photographs with the last remaining police box outside in London, the Tardis at the BBC, and a dalek at the BBC. Some of the best parts of the tour had nothing to do with Doctor Who including a walk through a modern and actively being worked on spray painted subway, a walk on the shore of the Thames, photos on the Millenium bridge, a trip to an armour/weapons exhibit and a recommendation to go to the war museum.

  • very boring

  • This was a very good Doctor Who Tour with a lot of general London info thrown in as well. I had thought there was going to be more of a Classic Who bend, but rather it ended up being completely Modern Who which started out a bit disappointing, but the Tour Guide Gary I believe ended up making it a very enjoyable 3 hours.

    My biggest complaint would be that the video clips that were shown had excessively long intros that felt like they were there to eat up time in the tour. Still photographs would have been much quicker and just as effective.

    That's a minor complaint for what was otherwise a very enjoyable experience!

  • This was absolutely awesome and our guide was fabulous. Tour went for over 3 hours and it was great to be able to travel around via a London blackcab with the ability to stop and get out whenever we wanted to, instead of being locked into a group tour. I would highly recommend this to any Doctor Who fan and it is definitely value for money. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

  • Amazing Tour! Steve was an awesome tour guide! Showed my husband the Dr. Who fan in our group all of the Dr. Who sites, plus showed us some of London and took family photos for us. Even made our daughters feel special. Was a great day spent as a family.

  • This was a great tour. We stopped at a number of locations from Doctor Who and from Sherlock as well. Jerry was a great guide. Knowledgeable and funny.

  • Stephen, our driver was simply amazing. He took us to all of the sites we wanted to see in London, especially the ones that Doctor Who fans would expect to see. We were able to pack more into one day with this tour than we ever possibly could with a conventional bus tour. Stephen knew all of the best places to take pictures, and we ended up with memories we will always cherish. He is well steeped in knowledge about the show and our favorite Doctors. The tour will cost you less if you have more people, but for the two of us it was well worth it!

  • Our tour guide Steve was fantastic. We had a great time.

  • To be honest, our tour was terrible. It was sold as a Dr. Who tour of London. We had already taken a tour of the city on the Hop on Hop Off Bus. So we were looking for this to be a special event for my son who loves Dr. Who. Our driver, Steve, seemed to know VERY LITTLE about Dr. Who. All he did was point out some spots where it had been filmed. Not only that but when I was resigned to the tour just being about spots in London to take pictures, I tried asking tourist questions about London which he seemed incapable of answer. Big bummer considering it was very expensive!!!
