Information about Beasts of London

Thinking about visiting Beasts of London? On this page you'll find practical information about the experience to help you plan your visit.

Are there real animals or live actors?

No – the whole tour is experienced through theatrical set and audio visuals.

However, you will hear some familiar voices. Some of the animals have been voiced by household names such as Kate Moss, Brian Blessed and Joe Pasquale. Find out more about the celebrity voices of Beasts of London.

Can I take my pushchair into the experience?

Due to limitations on space, we're afraid prams and pushchairs can't be accommodated in the experience. Please chat to member of our friendly Host team if you have any concerns about this.

There is a buggy park near the Information Desk and we also have some hip carriers at the entrance to the experience that you can borrow to help carry little ones.

Can I take photographs?

Absolutely – but please no flash photography. Don't forget to share your experiences with us on social media too. Find us on Twitter and Facebook @MuseumofLondon.

Accessibility and assistance

The experience is located on floor 'Lower 2' of the museum, so you can use the lift or take four flights of stairs.

The exhibition is fully accessible for wheelchairs.

All our Hosts are first aid trained and some are specially trained in first aid for children.

The voices of the beasts, and their thoughts and descriptions, form an important part of the experience. There are no subtitles or a hearing loop, but a transcript of the audio can be collected in a printed version from the desk at the experience's entrance.

Please be advised that the experience contains flashing imagery. Please talk to a member of staff if you need further information before you visit.

Forgotten anything or had an accident? There is an emergency pack at the entrance to the exhibition with helpful items should you need it. Just ask a Host.
