London’s newest and most spectacular tourist attraction is Outernet at the Now building by Tottenham Court Road underground station. Outernet is the largest collection of LED video screens in the world, constantly showing a dazzling array of ever-changing visuals.
It’s a mesmerising place to visit, and even better – its free to visit.
The four-storey tall 8K DV LED video walls which show a blend of curated arts and brand imagery have become very popular with Londoners and tourists alike and are now being visited by 4 million visitors a year. This makes the Outernet screens one of London’s top tourist attractions.
The images projected on the screen range from psychedelic patterns to an exploration of the NASA space station.
The screens are part of Outernet London, an immersive entertainment district in the heart of central London. Which is claimed to be the largest digital entertainment space in Europe.
The huge screens are accessed at street level. Downstairs, is HERE at Outernet a 2000 capacity live music venue featuring top global artists.
The district also features The Now Arcade – a 21-meter-long LED tunnel which fully surrounds pedestrians as they make their way into the Outernet district from Denmark Street.
