Remember, remember the 5th of November, gunpowder treason and plot!!

The Gunpowder Plot immersive experience comes to the UNESCO World Heritage Tower Vaults at the Tower of London, bringing the story of Guy Fawkes to life.  On the 5th November 1605, Guy Faulks plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament, an event so famous that it is still remembered every year. The Vaults sit beneath the Tower where Fawkes stored much of the gunpowder to be used, however he was eventually captured and tortured before his death.

The Gunpower Plot will set your five senses alive, as you use virtual reality, as you make a dangerous attempt to escape the Tower, uncover a secret safehouse, and make the daring journey along the Thames towards the Houses of Parliament. Be part of history and follow in Fawkes footsteps, but will you escape uncaptured? You will go undercover and unmask the mysterious figures behind history’s most infamous plot. But be careful who you trust, as you are surrounded by traitors after all.

This experience will last 1 hour and 40 minutes, with a 20 minute interval where you can enjoy a refreshment, whilst you plan your next move.
