There’s a reason Shrek is a family classic. Grumpy green ogre (and his wife), wisecracking donkey, classic fairy-tale characters – what's not to love?
For superfans and swamp-life newbies alike, Shrek’s Adventure! London is a must-visit immersive world that feels like you’re stepping into the movies. There’s a whole host of shows and activities hosted by all your favourite faces, as well as Play Stations for other DreamWorks movies. Bonus.
Fun for all ages!
With our insider info, tips and "must-do's"
Prepare for your cheeks to hurt. We never stopped laughing, highlight of our trip!
It only takes a couple of hours so try tagging SEA LIFE or London Eye on too as it's really close by!
The photo booklet at the end was also really good value, we loved it!
By the time you get round all the interactive zones in Shrek’s Adventure! London, you’ll feel like one of the stars of the story.
Your adventure takes place in Far Far Away. The task at hand? Helping Shrek and his pals save the day. Jump into the 4D flying bus experience, driven by Shrek’s trusty (sort of) sidekick, Donkey. Visit Cinderella in the swamp, hang out with Puss in Boots in the Poison Apple Pub, rescue Pinocchio from the wheel of torture, and do you know the Muffin Man? Well, cook up a magic spell with him in The Bakery.
Explore 11 fairytale-themed live shows and then – the bit you’ve been waiting for – meet the ogre himself. Just don’t be surprised if he tells you to get out of his swamp.
Finish off your journey at the DreamWorks play stations to meet your favourite characters from Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon.
Shrek’s Adventure is open from 10am - 4pm every day. But check online to confirm as this changes sometimes.
You’ll find it on the South Bank of the Thames next to the London Eye and it’s five minutes’ walk from the Waterloo and Westminster tube stations. If driving is best for you, remember that it’s in the Congestion Charge Zone, but the venue has parking agreements with Q-Park and The National Theatre, and you can pre-book your space online.
The attraction tries to be as accessible as possible. One wheelchair guest can be admitted each hour and there are adapted toilets at the entrance, on the first floor near the lift. Some of the zones have flashing lights, so beware if you (or anyone you’re with) has photosensitive epilepsy. If you suffer from motion sickness or have a heart condition, give the 4D Magic Bus a body swerve.
