Historic Royal Palaces: visitors will travel back to 17th century

Historic Royal Palaces is working with Andrew McGuinness' DotDotDot on an immersive Gunpowder Plot experience to open in autumn 2020.

The 20,000-square-feet space adjacent to the Tower of London will use a number of elements to explore the story of Guy Fawkes.

Visitors will travel back to the 17th century to be among the plotters and try to solve the conspiracy.

A combination of real and virtual actors, sets, virtual reality, augmented reality and projection mapping will be used alongside sound, taste, temperature and aroma. A themed bar will "transport adventurers back in time before their journey". 

The digital entertainment company is behind Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds. A similar approach will be used in the production of the latest experience.
