"The Most Immersive VR Arcade In London"


OTHERWORLD will reopen on 4th July 2020, and we are now taking bookings again.

Health and safety has always been extremely important to us. We have always used clinical-grade anti-viral wipes (99.999% effective against COVID-19, influenza, norovirus and more) after every use of our immersion rooms.

In response to COVID-19, we are also sanitising using UV wands, maintaining social distancing, and introducing a 1-way flow through the venue.

For more information on what changes we're making please visit our 'Dealing With Covid-19' page.

Thank you for your support.

Your portal to another world

OTHERWORLD is a free roam VR island paradise with portals to sixteen unique virtual reality experiences, accessed only from a railway arch in Haggerston, East London.
When it's time to take off, you and your friends will each step into your own sense-hacking immersion room, a private space which combines a leading VR headset with dynamic heat, wind and rumble effects for maximum immersion.
You will travel to a boundless world of natural beauty: the perfect antidote to the chaos of urban living.
Once inside the virtual world, you'll be reunited with your friends: see and hear them as if they were right next to you.

Dotted around OTHERWORLD are portals to sixteen unforgettable VR experiences - like a virtual reality theme park - which let you experience the impossible.
You can fight a zombie apocalypse deep in Arizona, live a solitary life on the open seas, or swing from tree to tree and discover the secrets of the ancients...
