8-12 Tower Hill Vaults
The experience takes place in a purpose-designed immersive theatre space in the UNESCO World Heritage Tower Vaults, right alongside The Tower of London, last accessible to the public two decades ago. The vaults sit beneath the infamous Tower Hill site where much of the prelude to the Gunpowder Plot took place before Guy Fawkes’ torture and eventual death. The gunpowder was even stored there after the plot was foiled. Journey back to a time where the Tower was the ultimate symbol of state and royal power. “Send him to the Tower” was the final threat for Britons. Guy Fawkes and his fellow plotters were sent to The Tower of London as a reflection of the seriousness of their plot. They were imprisoned and tortured at the Tower before suffering a hideous traitor’s death in Westminster.
Set in 20,000 square feet of specially converted vault space, over three separate levels, you will step back into history to experience the conspiracy first hand. Our story will start and end at The Tower but you will journey through the streets of 1605 London as you immerse yourself in an unforgettable, fully 360 environment.
Before your experience, enjoy a drink or a bite to eat with us.
It is often claimed that Guy Fawkes and his co-conspirators hatched their plan in a tavern on the Strand, named the Duck and Drake. It is here they apparently swore an oath on the bible to blow up Parliament. During your experience you will have the chance to enjoy an interval drink or cocktail in a specially recreated Duck and Drake, accessible only to plotters. But you will need to keep your wits about you as you never know who you may bump into...
