About The Gunpowder Plot Immersive Experience

What is The Gunpowder Plot immersive experience?

The story is set in London in 1605. The city of London is divided, and rebellion is at an all-time high. The peace of the country is at risk, and the world is full of spies and informants hiding in shadows. You have the opportunity to step into this world and go undercover. You will unmask the mysterious characters involved in the most infamous plot of British history. Surrounded by traitors, be a part of the immersive events through next-generation technology as you make a daring attempt to escape the Tower of London, find a secret safe house, and make the journey along the Thames to the Houses of Parliament.

The fifth of November comes alive in this exciting experience that is fully immersive. The Gunpowder Plot is based on Guy Fawkes' 1605 attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament. You will be sent back in time to take part in a story of conspiracy, with an immersive experience in the vaults opposite the Tower of London. Guy Fawkes and his team were imprisoned and tortured in the tower that you will be in!
