Shrek’s Adventure

KidRated’s Shrek’s Adventure Top Tips:

  • A perfect activity for a day out on the Southbank
  • If you’re not a fan of Shrek, there are loads of other Dreamworks characters to see
  • Be patient, there are sometimes queues

Shrek’s Adventure opened in County Hall in 2015, right by the Aquarium, Dungeon and London Eye and has proved to be massive hit, especially with anyone who loved the Dreamworks franchise.



Starting off in a 4D bus, with Donkey as a tour guide. As you journey round the Far Far Away you will spot some of your favourite Shrek characters, including Puss in Boots, the Gingerbread Man, Rumpelstiltskin and so many more.


You have the chance to explore Shrek’s swamp. Kids who love gross stuff will especially like to see his ogre-sized loo!


Having had a shrek-tastic adventure, you can also meet loads of other Dreamworks characters including the animals from Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, Po and Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon.

Parent Point of View

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • This is a ‘walk and ride’ attraction which means you go around to different room-sets in a group and meet different characters.
  • Keep the kids at the front so they can be the volunteers in each ‘act’.
  • Under 3s go free but this is best for kids over 6 years.
  • You can leave folded buggies at the start and they can take some over-sized bags too.
  • The bus ride is fantastic!
