Whether Lewis Carroll had a very wild imagination or was tripping hard on acid, his masterpiece narrative, "Alice in Wonderland" is and will continue to remain an epic worldwide sensation and is evidently the core inspiration behind Alice's Adventures Underground. Now transformed into this interactive, exhilarating theatrical performance, you'll be able to soak up a silly slice of Wonderland first-hand from the Wonderland Bar to Cook's Kitchen. Ideal fun for families and friends and certain to have kids especially enchanted, become the centre of the tale and meet Alice, the Mad Hatter and more inside this playful jungle wonder.

Showings of this to-be spectacular, madcap marvel start on Tuesday 16th June and will continue over the summer 'til 30th August, running on a daily rota excluding Mondays. An impressive 4-star rated and described by Time Out as "Enjoyably macabre" and The Stage as "Full of little treats", we're sure this spectacle will make for a magical and memorable tour de force this summer. In order to keep everything running smoothly, the team behind Alice's Adventures Underground kindly ask that you and your family and friends arrive no later than 15 minutes before your allotted show time as late admissions will not be accepted.

The 90-minute masterwork encourages a red/black dress code for visitors to truly immerse themselves into Alice's weird and whimsical Wonderland. Post-show on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Wonderland bar will be opened 'til 2.00 offering a beautiful banquet of bevvies, brilliant bites and quirky cocktails, as well as upbeat, atmospheric live music. On top of all that, enter Wonderland at your own risk as you take on flamingo croquet, explore the mystical maze, meet the last remaining Dodo and try to avoid the White Knight.

I have no idea how people have anything bad to say about this show. It was absolutely fantastic and an experience I will always remember fondly. I love Alice in Wonderland so this was perfect for me. The whole production was so well thought out and you can tell that an enormous amount of effort went into producing it. The sets are enchanting and detailed and the characters were incredible (their costumes were great too!). No one slipped out of character once. In response to another review: yes, there was no set start-to-finish plot as such but why should there have been? It was an immersive experience in Wonderland (a world of nonsense, remember?), plus there was obviously the storyline of the rebellion and black cards vs. red cards. If this came back, I would definitely go again, I've told so many people about it and I'd love an excuse to go back to show it to them!

I couldn't disagree more with the negative reviews on this event. The show was imaginative, exciting and barrelling you along with energy and humour. The sets and characters were enchanting. I wish the show hadn't sold out so we were able to go again!

The main problem is you can hear the other acts in the other rooms as you are trying to listen to yours. It was all very distracting. Rushed around from room to room with no real sense of story or plot. No bad, not great.

Disappointed with this seriously overpriced 'event'. Best thing was the guy who was the 'turtle' who had a beautiful voice. Otherwise, all done on the cheap and felt like it.

Awesome evening! The sets were amazing, and I had no sense of what was going to happen next, Never a dull moment and really clever how the audience was involved in the plot without feeling like they were "role playing"

It's great fun for adults who haven't grown up and adults who've forgotten their inner child. I only wished it was longer because it was so much fun, but I suppose that leaves you wanting more. It's the kind of event you can do twice to take a different twist on the interactive story.

This was amazing and crazy all at the same time! I took my girlfriend for a date and she was very impressed. It's really well thought out and the event is jam packed with different rooms and characters. Definitely recommend to everyone.

Amazing experience, very well done scenography and fantastic actors. This production really brought me back to my childhood. It is definitely worth going, and I would recommend everyone to go!

Amazing! What a great experience, everyone should go to this! A unique night out. Really good for a date or a group outing. The play is interactive through many scenes and you just want to do it over and over again!

I had an amazing time here, I was caught up in all the magic. After choosing the eat me option I am returning with another friend to take part in the drink me option next week. Can not wait. 😊

Literally the best thing I have seen/been part of in London for a long time. Would highly recommend to anyone! Expect the unexpected! You will not be disappointed, whether you’re an Alice fan or not!
