This question is directed at people who have visited the Exhibition recently, and/or who are locals.

So. . . as part of a longer European holiday (Belgium, actually), I will be in London May 22-24.  I will be seeing Tennant and Tate in "Much Ado" that Wednesday evening (SQUEE!).  I've been to London several times, so I'll just be using my time to visit places I haven't seen before.

Top of my list is the Doctor Who Exhibition.  Their website advises reservations, but I'd rather not be tied down to a particular day and time.  Now that it's no longer shiny-new, are advance tickets still necessary?

Also, is there are particular time that is less likely to to crammed with shrieking children?  I'm thinking that a weekday might be better than Sunday.  Also, I'm over 50 and traveling alone.  Am I going to stand out like a Sontaran at a garden party?  (I'm going anyway.  Just wondering.)

I fear I can't help you very much with any of this, but I am so interested in seeing the answers to all of these questions - as I've asked them myself as well!

(From the old Exhibition I can only advise you to take along someone, though. Otherwise you'll ask strangers to do nerdy pictures of you all the time ;)

Taking someone along is not an option. Most of my friends and family will be about 5000+ km away. I'm used to asking strangers to take pictures of me, and at tourist sites there are usually plenty of people willing to do favors for other visitors.

When the exhibition came to Coventry a couple years back, advance tickets were required at all times so I'm pretty sure they will be required ... school hours are 9 to 3 and that should be during term time, (half term holiday is 30 May onwards for us) so screaming kids would only be if they are on a school trip
