Cardiff's Doctor Who Experience will close next year

The Doctor Who Experience is to close next summer.

Yes, you read that right. BBC Worldwide have confirmed that "the Doctor Who Experience has enjoyed a fantastic five-year run in Cardiff Bay but, sadly, our five-year sub-lease from the City of Cardiff Council will come to an end in Summer 2017."

The Experience opened in Cardiff in July 2012, and quickly become the place to go for Doctor Who fans from all over the world.

The building is thought to be one of the first of its kind to be used for an exhibition centre, the frame is constructed using steel beams, with a cover stretched over the entire building giving it the appearance of a giant tent.

The award-winning attraction was refurbished in 2014 to include a newly scripted storyline starring the 12th Doctor, Peter Capaldi.

The exhibition space was also be given a refresh, with new props from Capaldi’s debut series, as well as sets and monsters from the history of the world’s longest-running sci-fi series.
