Immersive Experiences In London

London, it's got to be one of the greatest cities in the world; from pubs to clubs and right back to boozy brunches, there's never a shortage of things to do. But sometimes we need a bit of escapism in the capital and reading Harry Potter for the tenth time ain't going to cut it. Fortunately London has a whole heap of immersive experiences to take you away from the sky scrapers; from the strange and the unusual, through to partying like it's the 1920s, these are the best immersive experiences in London.
