Last Alteration: Sunday 07 April 2013

Welcome!

"I once spent decades faithfully cataloguing all the locations, every visit from the smallest camera angle to the largest zoom. But no sooner had I finished when it all started changing - new series, new filming, locations running amuck ... I had to start amending my entries - oh the task is endless!"

Welcome to the Locations Guide, a website devoted to the filming of the classic and new television series Doctor Who, and spin-offs such as Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.

This site is designed to be a guide to the many locations around the UK and the world which have been used for the filming of the series, providing details on how they were used within the shows, where to find them, and a comparison between how they look in the modern day to their original appearance on screen.

Our aim is to maintain an up-to-date database of locations and how they change over time, which means that unlike printed publications we can reflect alterations, demolition or name changes as they occur. However, being that there are some 1374 locations in the database, this might be a never-ending task!

This means we depend on you! We hope to provide a community for location-seekers in order for them to organise trips to places themselves, and to provide feedback on what they find. Please send us any news, updates, and photo submissions for locations; we're also interested in filming reports, and also photos portraying places at the time of filming or or in subsequent years before they were altered/demolished.

As of 24th June there are 4363 photos submitted, covering 934 out of the 1374 known locations.
Here is a list of locations we don't have photos for at present - if you have photos for any of these, or more recent ones for those on-site, please do submit your own! (full list)

Please note that this is a fan-run site, and is not directly connected to either the BBC or the production of Doctor Who!

Recent Changes on the site:

This is a list of alterations to location entries that have taken place in the last 28 days. Changes can include new details, links and directions as well as photographs that have been added for reference - the newest photos can be seen here, and filming photos here (spoilers!).
