"The decor and rooms you go through are done really well, the interactive actors were fab and great in character...not too scary but suspenseful and fun"

- Nikki D, London, via Tripadvisor


There are only 9 weeks to go until Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience reopens on 22 May and we can't wait to welcome everyone back.

One of the central scenes, Journey to London, has been completely transformed into a physical, live action sequence of new scenes with brand new sets, holograms, projections, special effects and live actors, all set to Jeff's iconic score.

To survive, you will be led by one of the main characters, The Artilleryman, across land, over a rickety old rope bridge before being forced to jump into a stream that takes you into London.

As you approach Weybridge, you hear the giant footsteps of Fighting Machines all around you, while the military prepares for battle against the Martians. 

Then you are surrounded and the Machines descend.

As the battle rages you have no other choice but to run, heading for London.


1. Take shelter with the Artilleryman in the trenches...

2. Hide inside a military tent from Martian Fighting Machines above you.

3. Reach Carrie's house in war-torn London.

'one of the most unique and enjoyable collaborations'

Read what Jeff has to say about the making of the Immersive Experience - “Working with Layered Reality to turn my Musical Version into an Immersive Experience has creatively been one of the most unique and enjoyable collaborations within my career. 

 The challenge of starting with my original score and script, then adding new musical content, remixes and mash ups plus new storylines all coming together with two very passionate teams - those of Layered Reality and my own studio team and remain friends and proud of the end result, has been very special indeed.

 I’ve always wondered what it would be like to step back in time to the world of HG Wells and his dark Victorian tale and survive the Martians. Well, now I know!" RVE AMA
