Know More about this tour

After meeting your guide in central London, set off on your Doctor Who tour of the city. While much of the everyday filming for the sci-fi series took place in Cardiff, many iconic Doctor Who scenes were filmed on the streets of England’s capital. See a selection of the best while exploring neighborhoods like Borough, Southwark, the City of London and the South Bank.

As you walk, your guide will entertain you with fun snippets of trivia about the intergalactic time lord, who travels back in time exploring the universe. Learn about his TARDIS – the 1960s-style London police box used as a time-traveling machine – and hear about key characters such as Clara Oswald and Madam Vastra.

Visit sites used recently like Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, which featured in The Shakespeare Code episode, as well as filming locations from older episodes such as Remembrance of the Daleks, filmed in 1988. Stop for photos in John Adams Street, where the Prime Minster's house was recreated for the show and recollect the episode when the iconic building was infiltrated by the ruthless Slitheens – a family of criminal extraterrestrials from the planet Raxacoricofallapatorius.

Hear insider gossip about the cast, learning little-known secrets about actors who have played the coveted role of the Doctor. Chat about popular faces like Matt Smith, David Tenant and Christopher Eccleston, and compare them with earlier actors such as William Hartnell who starred in the first-ever episode.

Having explored the key filming sites around London, work your way to Westminster Station where your tour finishes.

  • Very nice tour but I was expecting the Tower of London to be on the itinerary, instead it was pointed out to us from the London bridge.

  • Paid for 3 tickets through Viator for a 10:30am Dr Who Walking Tour in London on Aug 4, 2017. Showed up at 10:34 few minutes late due to a train station closure--no one there. No one in the area--we looked all around, hoping to catch up--found two other walking tours but not this one. Called the customer service number listed on the vouchers only to get a recording that says this number does not receive incoming calls. I emailed the Viator later that day. The reply said it was our problem for being late, they do not know the tour route anyway nor how to contact the tour provider BritMovieTours, but if I'd like to PAY AGAIN they'd be happy to book us for a tour the next day. Yeah, right, like I'd give more money to a company with this kind of customer service. Over the course of the day they sent more emails, offering first a 25 then a 50 discount on re-booking. If they had room in the tour, why not just let us take the tour? We had already paid for it! I took the kids to the Dr. Who Museum instead out of the way but fun and booked with a DIFFERENT walking tour company whotourlondon for the next day where we received a private tour for about the same price as the Viator one. So, Viator/BritMovie Tour companies got to keep their money for providing nothing, but they have forever lost a customer. I'll never understand why companies spend so much money advertising to attract new customers and then treat their actual customers so poorly.

  • It was cool to visit some of the places where they shot the scenes, it was a large group so you have to stand closer to be able to hear. Not too much walking. Overall I will recommend to Whovians.

  • Craig our Tour Guide was AMAZING! He had so much information not only about Dr. Who but about the London area. I am glad we took this tour early in out trip to London because we had people travel in to meet us later and I kept saying to them, I learned that on our Dr. Who tour. It became a running joke but I will definitely consider this company for future tours on our return trips! THANK YOU!!

  • If youre a Dr Who fan you will love this tour. Dewi, our tour guide, was clearly a devoted fan and it showed in his attitude. He was entertaining and passionate in taking us through the different places in London where the series was filmed. Even if youre not a Dr Who fan I still would recommend this tour as you get to see a lot of places around London and Dewi also had a good knowledge of the general history of the areas covered.

  • Dewi is a good humoured and pleasant guide - knowledgeable and thoughtful.

  • The tour company Zook good care of me when I went to the wrong meeting point. I and #39;m glad I caught up to the group because I saw some interesting parts of London that are part of Doctor Who lore. The stories were great and the photos from the episodes really helped highlight the connection to the show

  • The tour guide was entertaining.

  • It was a good length, but I really don and #39;t care for old Doctor Who and I believe half was about that so that was a let down. The tour guide was really great.

  • Great tour! Dewi was VERY knowledgeable! A great behind-the-scenes look at London and Dr. Who! Highly recommend.
