Doctor Who London Locations Walking Tour
Discover London’s sci-fi secrets with the Doctor Who London Locations Walking Tour. Follow in the footsteps of the Doctors, past and future, and uncover their countless adventures throughout England’s capital city.
This tour gives you the opportunity to see, close-up, the locations and settings that have been integral to the Time Lord’s stories over the years. It also allows you to explore the hustle and bustle of this amazing city at a relaxed and easy pace.
The Doctor Who London Locations Walking Tour takes in the most iconic locations from throughout the TV series.
One of the stops on this tour will be St. Paul’s Cathedral, which has been a hub of Cybermen activity for many years. It first featured in the episode The Invasion in the late 60s, when the Cybermen tried to take over London. One of the iconic scenes from this episode sees the robotic aliens march slowly down the cathedral steps. This shot was recreated in the 2014 episodes Dark Water and Death in Heaven when a hoard of Cybermen emerged from a tomb inside St. Paul’s itself.
You’ll also visit The Shard. (It’s London’s tallest building after all, so it’s pretty hard to miss!) This skyscraper played a pivotal role in the episode The Bells of St John. It was from here that The Great Intelligence controlled the Spoonheads. The Doctor also drove up the side of it on an anti-gravity motorbike.
Staying with the taller parts of London’s skyline, this tour will also visit the London Eye. It featured in Christopher Eccleston’s first adventure as the Doctor. This giant Ferris wheel made the perfect transmitter for the Nestene Consciousness, the hive mind that tried to take over London.
And that’s not all. You’ll get to see Westminster Bridge, where the Daleks invaded Earth during the reign of the First Doctor, back in 1964. There’s also the Globe Theatre, where the Doctor and Martha Jones met William Shakespeare. And, to make sure you keep your Doctor Who knowledge sharp, your guide will quiz you with fun trivia questions as you go.
The Doctor Who London Locations Walking Tour combines an adventure through one of the world’s most famous cities with the very best in Whovian sightseeing. It is a unique and fun experience that all humans and Time Lords can enjoy!
