Enjoy a unique and immersive day out in London, as you uncover The Gunpowder Plot

"Remember, remember, the 5th of November, gunpowder treason and plot"... we’ll let you finish it off.

There are a few dates throughout the year we all look out for, the 5th of November – Bonfire Night – always being one.

The day has become synonymous with fireworks lighting up the night sky, but there’s a story behind it all that’s as captivating as all those bangs and fizzes.

The Gunpowder Plot, which takes place down in the cellars of the Tower of London, is an immersive experience that’ll take you back in time to the actual event.

It’s up to you, going undercover, to try and figure out the unknown faces behind the plot to blow up parliament. But be careful of who you trust, you never know where traitors lurk.

The experience is a combination of live theatre and some of the most incredible digital technology to date, fully immersing you in the experience.

You might know the history; now it’s time to be a part of it.
