Dr Who fans will be delighted to find out that the infamous TARDIS is at the Bridges Shopping Centre in Sunderland.

The most famous time travelling police box has landed in the Sunderland shopping centre.

A replica of the Dr Who TARDIS, the Time and Relative Dimension in Space box, has currently taken up residency until the end of February.

Fans of the hit BBC show will get a rare opportunity to visit and take a selfie with one of the most well-known forms of space and time travel.

It may surprise many but the city also has a lesser known connection with Dr Who.

The first ever police box in the UK was put in place at Sunderland’s Kayll Road in 1923.

The replica was commissioned by Sunderland City Council for an event last summer which highlighted the heritage in the west of the city.

Andy Bradley, Centre Director of the Bridges, said: “Dr Who is such a massively popular programme with generations of people enjoying it over the years.

“We’re sure fans of the show will love the opportunity to come and get their picture taken with it. It’s great for this iconic piece of TV history to be getting a second outing and we hope that lots of people will come and see it.”
