Royal Docks Rainbows

Royal Docks Rainbows

Get ready for a fun, flavourful revelation as international multi-sensory experience designers Bompas & Parr come to the Royal Docks to create the world’s first rainbow you can actually interact with. Head below Silvertown Way, Britain’s first flyover, and you’ll find the Royal Docks Flavour Rainbow - an incredible sensory experience that immerses you in the history of the Royal Docks and Newham.

Working with local schools, Bompas & Parr have conjured up evocative essences synonymous with the docks as imaged by children, in a celebration of the rich heritage of this vibrant part of east London. And if that wasn’t joyous enough for you, twice a day the docks will be illuminated with the sight of a rainbow (sunlight permitting). Arcs of fine spray will span each side of the Royal Victoria Dock during the displays, which you’ll be able to look through and see the light transformed into the symbols of hope and renewal.
