YOUR JOURNEY THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE

Learn everything you need to know before heading to the experience...welcome to The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience guide!

What is it? 

London’s newest Layered Reality™ immersive experience gives you the chance to walk, crawl and slide through a Martian Invasion – all to the thumping beats of Jeff Wayne’s iconic album.

Experience “the Future of Entertainment” (Design My Night) with:

  • Live actors, pyrotechnics and walkaround sets that truly immersive you into the story;
  • Cutting-edge virtual reality, augmented reality and holograms to transport you back to 1896; and
  • Temperature, touch and feel sensations that make your hair stand on end for a spine-tingling thrill.

You’ll be thrust into the heart of the famous HG Wells story from the moment you step inside the 22,000-square foot multi-level site in the City of London.

You’ll need a stiff drink in the bar to muster up the courage before facing the Martian Fighting Machines!

How long is it? 

The experience lasts for up to two hours (which includes a 20 minute intermission in the Red Weed Bar to steady the nerves). You can enjoy a cocktail or two and a delicious meal before or after your adventure in the Steampunk restaurant, where a life-sized Martian Fighting Machine gazes down on you.

You will be in a group with up to eight people. Each group has a dedicated time slot and you must arrive 15 minutes before your start time.
