Here's an excerpt from Wikitravel: Although many visitors, especially Americans, may feel apprehensive about visiting Hiroshima, it is a friendly, welcoming city, with as much interest in Western culture as anywhere else in Japan. Tourists are welcomed, and exhibits related to the atomic bomb are not concerned with blame or accusations. Bear in mind, ...

There's the one at Earl's Court in London. Here it is on Google Street View. Now my favourite part, if you use the arrows to move towards the TARDIS, Street View takes you INSIDE THE TARDIS! :) Another article here which shows the views from outside as well as INSIDE the TARDIS, if you don't want to have to load up the maps yourself. It's also possible ...

A quick scan of Wikivoyage's guide to Hiroshima sights indicate that memorials and museums to the attack have English-language information. If they didn't intend non-Japanese to visit the place, they wouldn't have such information. I seriously doubt that they'd regard the USA differently from other non-Japanese countries in this context, even though the USA ...

The original episodes of Doctor Who were filmed in and around London, especially West London (near BBC Television Centre). The current series are largely filmed in and around Cardiff in Wales. If you're a fan of Torchwood, you'll see lots of shots of there, while for Doctor Who it's often presented as being in London even though it's normally filmed in ...

It's perfectly fine. I've been to both Hiroshima and Nagasaki in my (Japanese) high school trip including multiple sessions with hibakushas. There is really no animosity in general. The emphasis of these museums and parks are solely on how horrible nuclear attacks and war is, and how we need to achieve world peace and eliminate all wars. I think most ...

Absolutely not an issue. Just to give a first-hand perspective (though the other 2 answers both excellently cover the 'why not'), I visited the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum and the Peace Park a few years back, and at no point did I feel any ill-will or awkwardness. As with any similar place as long as you are respectful you are welcome - the staff were as ...

There seems to be a blue Police box replica at Earl's Court tube station. The don't seem to serve any coffee, but it looks like a place to go and take a picture.

I live in suburban Stockholm so here is a locals view on the topic. Gamla stan Just taking a nice walk through Gamla Stan should be doable in a couple of hours so you will have plenty of more time to explore other parts of the city. In Gamla Stan - try to stay away from Västerlånggatan which is the most touristy street. Österlånggatan is a nicer option. ...

Here's a fairly haphazard list, based off your description. There's an exhibition of Malay silverwork at the V&A Museum until July 2014, and the National Service exhibition at the National Army Museum contains exhibits from Malaya. There's a statue of Sir Stamford in Westminster Abbey, and one of Viscount William Slim (commander of British troops in ...

You're looking for a travel guide. I hear Lonely Planet is popular, and they have apps too. Tripwolf and Triposo are well-rated app-centric travel guides. These will certainly cover world natural heritage places, culturally important places and places to eat as well as you'll be able to find anywhere. Climbing, however, is a special interest that general ...

There's the fantastic Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff (used to be London, not any more) which has a great walk-through experience with scenes in the TARDIS with a recorded Matt Smith AND loads of original props, sets and costumes (including the ability to walk on the original Tennant TARDIS set) If you just want somewhere to take pictures, ...

The new series were filmed in Cardiff, so most places you can see in the show are actually locations from there. That's why the Doctor Who Experience center is based in Cardiff, where you can find Tardises, Daleks and other items from the show. It is located around Cardiff Bay, where you can find the "entrance" to the fictional Torchwood Three, Cardiff, and ...

Six Flags Great Adventure is a very large amusement park and perhaps the most obvious choice. Google says it is 1:06 away from Union City by car. There are smaller parks closer to Union City which may be better for younger kids, e.g. Bowcraft. Your choice depends a bit on your group...

I seem to recall a Dr Who tourist attraction in Blackpool, but Blackpool is pretty grim, so it'd be best checking out reviews and so forth before you go there. Also from time to time there are museum exhibitions of Dr Who material that crop up around the country. The original police-boxes can still be found in Glasgow; there are four that I can think of ...
