I went to the Doctor Who Experience...alone...on Valentine's Day.
And it was perfect and fantastic (see what I did there, Doctor Who fans?)!!!
So, to explain the experience's set up (because I was a bit confused before going), it is half museum and half interactive guided tour. Since I got there early, I went to the museum part first. As you walk in you see number Ten's Tardis set first thing. I was a bit star struck to be honest. This is going to sound nerdy but honestly I have had so many memories in that Tardis and to see the real set in person was surreal.
After the museum section, I had my guided tour at 2:30pm so I came out early to get in line. At this point I still wasn't too sure what I was waiting for. After a few minutes the line was super long and there were people of all ages. Families, college students, couples...everyone!
I don't want to give too much away in case someone wants to visit, but let me just say that the interactive 'experience' was phenomenal! Matt Smith guides you through an adventure that feels almost real (if you ignore the other 25 people on the same adventure, haha).
Above are my favourite two pictures of the day! The top one is all of River Song's belongings including her Tardis diary. She is my favourite character and I might even go as far as being a role model because she is just so strong (and sassy)! Below is a photo of me in Ten's Tardis! I just kept walking back to it throughout my time in the museum and staring at it.
All in all, it was an experience I will never forget and I now understand why they call it the 'Doctor Who Experience' because that is the only way to describe it...quite an experience!
