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

Published on 06th September 2019

This free experience takes you on a journey below the surface of London’s great river. Step up to the Zoological Society of London’s 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, ZSL rely on donations for their wildlife-saving work. If you would like to support them 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. Part of Totally Thames 2019 which runs from 1-30 September.

Sing for Water at The Scoop is an incredible day of music and fundraising for WaterAid. Sing for Water was initiated by Thames Festival Trust and composer Helen Chadwick in 2002 as a choral project which raises money for WaterAid. To date, Sing for Water has raised over £1 million for WaterAid projects in Africa and Asia. This year all the money raised will go towards communities in Malawi. Choirs from London and around the UK learn a repertoire of songs chosen by Roxane Smith and Katie Rose and are then sponsored to perform in a concert at the Scoop.
