Longthorpe Tower boasts the finest medieval wall paintings in Western Europe. The Tower, owned by English Heritage, is managed by Vivacity Peterborough, who commissioned us to build an interactive that would help visitors understand the fine wall paintings.
We set out to build an interactive that would blend with the building and room setting - medieval but with a subtle modern air. The unit design also had to be modular so that it could be set up on site, due to the narrow winding staircase leading up to the display area!
In the first month of the interactive’s installation, the Tower had over 600 visitors. The interactive has received a very positive response from the public.

Ugly Studios were a delight to work with, delivering a wonderful themed device that would appeal to children and adults alike.
