Discover London's wildlife secret with ZSL's new Thames virtual reality experience.

This free experience takes you on a journey below the surface of London's great river. Step up to our VR portal, put on your swim goggles and 'dive' into the Thames.

As you explore, you'll join ZSL's conservation team in discovering the incredible wildlife that lives below the surface. Every experience is different, so challenge your friends and family to see who can discover the most species. Make sure to keep an eye out for some surprises along the way!

Find the experience on the bank of the Thames outside One London Bridge. Just 5 minutes' walk from London Bridge station.

This experience is free and open to all. As a charity, we rely on donations for our wildlife-saving work. If you would like to support us there is a contactless card donation point at the experience, and all donations are greatly appreciated!

ZSL's Thames virtual reality experience, the first of its kind in the UK, was created by BYO and Somewhere Else using Timescope technology. The VR experience was supported by the Royal Bank of Canada.
