BBC Studios, Moon Eye Productions and Live Nation are delighted to announce
BBC Earth Experience – a ground-breaking new attraction offering visitors the
chance to experience the extraordinary diversity of our seven unique continents,
on the most epic scale featuring bespoke narration from David Attenborough.
BBC Earth Experience will showcase footage, including extended scenes to fully

series Seven Worlds, One Planet, projected on multiple multi-angle screens using the
very latest digital screen technology. This new London attraction which spans 1608m2
offers a truly transformative experience that will allow audiences of every age to feel

iconic landscapes and connect with mesmerising animals on this epic adventure
bringing environments to life. From fireflies putting on a spectacular light show in North
America, to snub nosed monkeys huddling together to stay warm in Asia, and hungry
hamsters fighting to keep their food in Europe, visitors will get to experience our seven
continents in all their glory, like never before.
The Daikin Centre – a purpose built and demountable venue in London’s Earl’s
Court – will be the brand-new home of the experience. Backed by The Earls Court
Development Company with a vision ‘to bring the wonder back to Earl’s Court’, the
attraction will add to the broader site plans to celebrate the legacy of world-class
ingenuity and create a better place in the city.
