Flying dinosaurs, hummingbirds, and broadcasting legend David Attenborough all feature in an immersive reality experience coming to London for one week.

At Conquest of the Skies, you can don a special VR headset to be transported to canopies in the clouds and get up close to flying dinosaurs, hummingbirds and butterflies — accompanied by Attenborough’s incomparable narration.

And there’s an augmented reality aspect, too. Scan a QR code with your phone to open special filters showing the speed and scale of the creatures, and learn about the evolution of flight.

The experience ties in with a new virtual reality documentary, Conquest of the Skies VR, which is also narrated by Attenborough and will be available on Meta Quest TV. It’s a more high-tech follow-up to the 2015 series of Conquest of the Skies, and visitors can enjoy an immersive projection of a special cut of the documentary as part of this event.

Conquest of the Skies is in The Atrium at Westfield London (White City), 29 November-4 December 2022  (11am-7pm). It’s free, no booking required.
