THE UK’s first free-roam virtual reality and bar experience, Navrtar, has opened at Dickens Yard, Ealing Broadway.

Navrtar offers a range of options including a five-player session, perfect for company or private parties, as well as solo experiences for individuals.

It’s part of an emerging trend towards e-gaming, already available in Japan, US and Australia.
