A new Friends exhibition is set to make London its long-term home - starting from this summer.

The Friends Experience: The One in London, inspired by the globally loved TV series, will open its doors this August at a brand-new waterside location at ExCeL London.

This is just in time for the 30th anniversary celebration of the show in September.

As part of the experience, fans will get to visit full-scale re-created sets of the famous show and see a host of props, costumes, and other memorabilia up close.

Interactive set re-creations will let fans relive their favourite scenes from the series.

Visitors can pose behind Rachel and Monica's famous purple door, recline in Chandler and Joey's lounge chairs or relax on the iconic orange couch.

Behind-the-scenes elements will also offer insights from the show's creators and stories from the costume designer.

The event promises to whisk Londoners away to New York, thanks to the all-new Friends Station, modelled after the show's subway settings.

This section offers themed food, drinks and many more photo opportunities inspired by classic Friends moments.

A special feature exclusive to the ExCeL is the inclusion of immersive elements based on the popular London episodes, The One with Ross’ Wedding Parts 1 & 2.

Fans will get to step inside a re-created semi-demolished church where Ross' wedding took place and play around with a 3D model of Joey’s quirky London map.

No Friends Experience would be complete without Central Perk; the show's iconic coffeehouse will also be fully replicated for fans' enjoyment.

A themed gift shop will offer exclusive merchandise, only found in The Friends Experience: The One in London.

The exhibition was created by Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment, Original X Productions, and Warner Bros. Television Group, and will be operated by The Luna Entertainment Group, based in London.

Stacy Moscatelli, chief executive officer of Original X Productions, said: "The Friends Experience: The One in London marks a significant milestone as our second global flagship, continuing our expansion of this beloved attraction.

"As we celebrate the fifth anniversary of this much-loved experience and the 30th anniversary of the series, we’re thrilled to offer Londoners and visitors the chance to step inside the world of Friends and relive their favourite moments.

"We can’t wait to see everyone in the UK celebrate their Friends fandom."
