My sons are big fans of Dr Who and were really excited about the exhibition. getting to it is easy as there are many buses pass it and there is also parking, getting in however is a different story - it is not very well sign posted, it is a huge building with a little entrance which seemed to be tucked away, Im not sure if that is because of the building work going on around it or if it always like that.
