Travel: 3 Must See Immersive Exhibitions in London this Season

Credits: Dopamine Land

Fancy starting the year with a bang? Then opt for a city trip to London, voted the Best City in the World 2023. Be sure to add these 3 immersive exhibitions to your schedule.

The good news for the city of London just keeps on coming. Last year, the city received a whopping 3 accolades for “Best Tourist Attractions,” “Best Romantic Dining Options” and “Best cities to spend Christmas. This year, the city was voted “Best City in The World 2023”, leaving Paris and New York City behind. Totally justified, we agree, as the city has more than proven itself since the BREXIT and pandemic that even a setback does not stop it from ensuring that tourists always get the best experience. 

We love culture and museums immensely and a trip to London never disappoints us. These 3 immersive exhibitions are already our reason to plan another city trip this season: 

1. Weird Sensation Feels Good: The World of ASMR

Worldwide, there is an online community of millions of people enjoying ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) experiences: a physical sensation of euphoria or deep calm, sometimes a tingling in the body, caused by sound, touch and movement.

This exhibition (the first of its kind) brings the world of ASMR from the screen into physical space. During the experience, step into an acoustically tuned environment and understand how people use new and existing tools and materials to navigate our complex world.
