THE FRIENDS™ EXPERIENCE ANNOUNCES UK FLAGSHIP

WAITLIST OPENS ON 11 JUNE, TICKETS GO ON SALE 18 JUNE 2024 

 

Oh. My. Gawd. The FRIENDS™ Experience is coming to London, baby!, marking the launch of the show’s first flagship location in the UK. Inspired by one of the most globally loved TV series in history, The FRIENDS™ Experience will be making London its long-term home, beginning      this August, in a brand-new, purpose-built waterside location at London’s ExCeL, just in time to celebrate FRIENDS’ 30th anniversary.

 

Created by Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment, Original X Productions, and Warner Bros. Television Group, and operated by London-based The Luna Entertainment Group, The FRIENDS™ Experience: The One in London will bring fans one step closer to their favorite show and characters with full-scale re-created sets, iconic backdrops, costumes, and an array of props and memorabilia.

 

Featuring a variety of nostalgia-packed, interactive set re-creations, The FRIENDS™ Experience: The One in London will provide guests with plenty of opportunities to explore the show’s history and re-create some of their favorite scenes, such as posing behind Rachel and Monica’s famous purple door, kicking back in Chandler and Joey’s recliners and, of course, relaxing on the legendary orange couch. There will also be fun behind-the-scenes aspects for guests to explore, including insight from the show’s creators and storytelling from the costume designer.

 

But wait, there’s more! This truly unique experience promises to transport Londoners to the Big Apple with the all-new FRIENDS Station, inspired by the show’s New York City setting and subway stations. Here, guests can enjoy themed food and beverages and immerse themselves in even more classic FRIENDS moments and memorable photo opportunities. The flagship will also feature exclusive activations inspired by the beloved London episodes, “The One with Ross’ Wedding Parts 1 & 2,” from the series’ fourth season, which will allow visitors to step inside a recreated wedding scene at the semi-demolished church and engage with a 3D interpretation of Joey’s London map.

And of course, no visit to The FRIENDS™ Experience would be complete without stopping off at the show’s famed coffeehouse, Central Perk, which has been fully re-created in the London experience. Alongside every iconic set re-creation and photo opportunity, guests will also have the chance to visit a themed gift shop boasting exclusive merchandise, only to be found at The FRIENDS™ Experience: The One in London.

 

Stacy Moscatelli, Chief Executive Officer of Original X Productions, comments: “The FRIENDS™ Experience: The One in London marks a significant milestone as our second global flagship, continuing our expansion of this beloved attraction.
