Looking for immersive experiences in London? Well, good, because I’m the UK’s biggest indepent immersive experience blogger. Whenever an immersive experience launches in London, I’m there no matter how weird it is.
Below London’s best immersive experiences that I have tried and tested, organised by type. This article gets updated regularly, check the last published date for the latest update time and you’ll find 30+ immersive experiences here at all times.
THIS MONTH’S IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE HIGHLIGHTS
Colors Festival is a brand new art exhibition which features street art from 30 established and emerging artists from all over the world, including London-local, Dale Grimshaw. The exhibition is coming to the both London & Manchester after a series of sellout runs in Paris, and it is an explosion of colour through street graffiti, illustrations, photography and more. What I loved the most is that you are able to interact with the art and take unlimited photos. See my video review and book it here.
Junkyard Golf Club offers a unique and immersive mini-golf experience that combines creativity and urban flair. Each course has its own captivating theme, creating a visually engaging environment. From salvaged materials and repurposed junk, they have crafted a one-of-a-kind course that surprises players at every hole. Neon lights, funky installations, and unexpected obstacles add to the vibrant atmosphere. With pumping music and a fully stocked bar, Junkyard Golf Club is a popular destination for friends, date nights, or corporate events. It’s a place where you can let loose, unleash your inner child, and enjoy a thrilling round of golf in a delightfully unconventional setting. Book it here.
LONDON’S IMMERSIVE THEATRICAL EXPERIENCES
Bloodbath by Screamworks
This experience will immerse you in the sinister plot of a cunning serial killer as he tries to find the parts he needs to complete his Great Work. As a guest, you’ll be blindfolded and taken to the scary family home of Jack and Abel in Bethnal Green, where nothing is as it seems and your fate will lie in the balance. While this event is not for the faint-hearted, it is more of a psychological thriller than a traditional ‘haunted house’ attraction. You will be made to feel like you are the main character in your favourite horror movie. Book it here.
Burnt City by Punchdrunk
Punchdrunk, the world’s leading immersive theatre company, is back in London. You will explore a complete sensory world at your own pace, experiencing scenes in a non-linear way as the story unfolds around you. The story this time is the fall of Troy, where you will witness a mythical world of Gods and mortals who rise from the ashes. It has been one of the most immersive immersive experiences that I’ve ever been to and unlike anything I had seen before, noting it was my first time at a Punchdrunk show. Tips to enjoy: do some research before going, go early to maximise the time in the venue, ditch your group and explore on your own, go more than once! Book it here.
Concerts illuminated by candlelight? I’m definitely in! Fever has recently launched Candlelight, affordable and intimate concerts performed by live musicians in some of the most iconic venues in London that transport you to a fairytale. I had the chance to attend a concert in the beautiful conservatory in Syon Park to listen to City String Ensemble play Movie Soundtrack Disney classics, and I might have shed a tear or two.
