Try something memorable and unexpected while in London
News & Updates / April 23, 2019
Want to try something different, something memorable and unexpected while in London? Then how about taking a look at the unusual immersive experiences to be found throughout the city. Anything is possible from 1920’s partying to frightening cocktails and burlesque. You need nerves of steel when taking part in an adults-only cocktail event at the London Dungeon. This is a venue which is well known for its horror and terrifying stories but during LATES with Cocktail, it gets even scarier. Start searching for some good holiday apartments in London for a comfortable stay as the tours start in a Victorian gin palace where you enjoy a Gin Fizz, before heading off to streets inhabited by Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd. After those encounters, another drop of Dutch courage is definitely needed before encountering other terrifying tales and ending with the infamous, stomach-churning Drop ride.
Fancy something a little more lively? Then venture out to East London’s best-kept secret speakeasy and enjoy an evening of music, burlesque, circus, and vaudeville. This is definitely an adults-only event. Booking is necessary as the events get sold out very quickly.
Equally, adult only is the Floating World of The Lacy Nook, held on periodically in Stoke Newington. For a few hours, you can immerse yourself in a nineteenth-century Japanese teahouse experiencing activities like sake drinking, learning to wear a kimono, dining Japanese style and discovering erotic art.

Perhaps you prefer high tech virtual reality? Take a trip out to Clapham’s Four Thieves pub for a challenging gaming experience – the virtual reality room where anything can happen. The Four Thieves is renowned for its unusual retro-arcade providing all kinds of activities for an unusual evening’s entertainment. Booking is recommended.
Head for the Royal Victoria Dock in the East End for an adrenaline packed boat tour guaranteed to make stomachs churn. Predator Adventures offer an opportunity to discover the depths of the river in boat resembling an 18 feet long killer whale. Discover what it is like to be a whale jumping high into the air and deep into the waters. A state of the art F-16 fighter grade glass cockpit ensures that you have a perfect viewpoint – and feel the G-forces as the boat turns doughnuts rolling at 90-degree angles, speeds at up to 40 miles per hour underwater and jumps 18 feet into the air before diving back down six feet underwater. It’s speedy, awesome and incredibly memorable. The River Thames will never look the same again! Altogether, make sure to book your stay at any of the serviced apartments in London for a smooth and luxurious stay in the city along with an awesome visit to various places.
