Google encourages Londoners to be curious with five week long experience


Google is creating a landmark hub of discovery on The Crown Estate at Piccadilly Circus, to launch the new Google Pixel 3 phone. The Curiosity Rooms experience aims to encourage Londoners to unlock their curiosity and make their everyday more extraordinary with five weeks of workshops, talks, podcasts, food, music and much more.

The Google Pixel 3 has been designed using the best of Google in a phone powered by AI. Extraordinary things are happening all around us but we don’t always see them. With Pixel 3 you’ll never miss out again. Features such as Top Shot, Group Selfie Cam and Google Lens enables people to re-discover and capture more of their everyday.

From Thursday 15th November to Sunday 16th December, Google will take up residence as part of the Regent Street portfolio – the globally recognised destination for unequalled experiences – and will be inviting visitors to use the Pixel 3 to unveil experiences where fashion, food, music and art collide in a familiar, yet unexpected way.

Free and open to everyone, visitors will be able to buy the Pixel 3 and Google Home products from retail partners Carphone Warehouse and Currys PC World.

Over the five week period, visitors will be able to enjoy talks, live podcasts and interactive events in a beautiful space at 55 Regent Street. The experiences at the Curiosity Rooms will be shared over three floors, each with a distinct approach that encourages exploration and imagination:

The Ground Floor of the Curiosity Rooms is a space given over to the hero features of the new Pixel 3 with a host of remarkable experiences and collaborations made to bring them to life. Throughout the ground floor, visitors will be able to use Pixel 3’s latest Google Lens technology to search what they see and identify their favourite fashion items, then shop directly from the viewfinder.

Visitors will then continue their journey further into the Curiosity Rooms down the Not Pink slide – a nod to one of the Pixel 3’s colours – and will be encouraged to use the Top Shot feature to capture their best moment.

The Auditorium will host extraordinary conversations. Whether it’s taking on the world of fashion, food, music, or creativity in general, this space will allow visitors to discover a world of inspiring individuals who make their everyday extraordinary. With mini pop-up stores championing local London vendors, a neighbourhood coffee bar that changes each week, and a collective of artist and creative experiences, it’s a space made to bring an ever-changing everyday into the Curiosity Rooms.

The basement is the boldest of the three floors and will offer visitors access to a series of weekly podcast recordings, one off YouTube music events and immersive dining experiences.
