It's not theatre, or cinema. It's not an escape room, theme park ride or VR game. Yes, there are pyrotechnics, projections, holograms and special effects. But this is quite different to an arena show (there are only 8 tickets per performance). As London’s multi-award winning, top-rated “immersive night out,” this event combines them all.
Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience is a completely unique award-winning event where live actors, virtual reality and sensational 5D effects place you INSIDE the action set to Jeff Wayne’s multi-platinum Musical Version of The War of The Worlds.
The experience reopens next month on 22 May! There’s still time to book before we reopen and here are 7 reasons why it really makes sense to book now, before it’s too late!
Life's hard now. But the restrictions will end.
So give yourself something to look forward to when they do. Like this ...
We are, of course, biased. But we can't think of any experience packing this much into 110 minutes.
“Within the walls of this experience I fled from Martians, sailed gently in a boat which was then hurled around on the Thames as the Houses of Parliament were blown to smithereens and splashed down around us…and ended up going up into a hot air balloon!”
Unlike other West End shows, you’re not just a viewer.
You’re inside the action.
New virtual reality technology transports you to an apocalyptic Victorian England overrun by Martians.
“From the moment you step inside, you enter an experience like no other; the opportunity to live out the fantastic and unforgettable musical by Jeff Wayne."
- Ben M
All of your senses are set ablaze. It’s one reason this experience is so incredibly memorable.
“I simply cannot describe the excitement to the senses without underselling it.”
L.G. was “buzzing” long after the show ended.
“Wow wow wow. Just got home from this and am still buzzing. What an experience. It was fabulous. The whole experience from start to finish was truly amazing.”
Not our words. It’s what TDF said on TripAdvisor.
Lauren W. called it the “best experience of my life!”
Of 505 TripAdvisor reviews, 477 rate this “Excellent” or “Very Good.”
Even hard to please West End regulars leave this experience blown away.
“DON’T THINK ABOUT IT, BOOK IT!!! I have been to many West End shows, but this is not a show, it’s just an awesome experience!! So book…and enjoy!! If you don’t enjoy, you must be very hard to please. I will be going back, without a doubt!”
You leave reality the moment you step through the doors into the first of 2 themed bars.
“This attraction is absolutely epic. The set is just absolutely insane. I couldn't get over the scale of the building. The bars are very cool and you can see a lot of effort has gone into this attraction.”
- Ryan P
“At first you walk in to what you think is a themed bar but once you’re inside, you’re immersed in the story and the feeling of what happens next takes over.”
Both are hidden from the rest of London, with themed cocktails you won’t find anywhere else.
“The food is droolingly good.”
“The bar is themed wonderfully and the whole experience is an absolute must see.”
– Simon H
“The bar area was excellent and so were the cocktails!”
– Mark W
