The Gunpowder Plot

London, 1605. A city divided. The fuse of rebellion is lit. The peace of the nation balances on a knife edge...

Step into a world where spies and informants hide in every shadow.

Your mission is to go undercover and unmask the mysterious figures behind history’s most infamous plot. But when you’re surrounded by ‘traitors’ who can you trust?

In partnership with Historic Royal Palaces, Layered Reality's newest experience opened in June 2022 in Tower Vaults at the Tower of London.
