It’s November 5th, 1605 – an important historical date.

You’ve spent the past year scheming and plotting with your devious conspirators. Tonight, you plan to drag England into uncontrollable chaos. You’ve been an integral member of the Gunpowder Plot and have been involved in its conception for months.

You’ve dodged government officials and the law. All your planning has brought you to this point. There’s one problem though. You’ve arrived at Parliament’s Undercroft to discover that Fawkes has been arrested! This gives you an hour before the guards arrive to arrest you!

Your task is as follows: find a way into the Undercroft using the clues Fawkes has left behind, locate the hidden matches, light the barrels on fire and get the heck out of there. If not, you’ll be hung, drawn and quartered alongside Fawkes.

Play as the bad guy in this 60 minute race against time and learn more about England’s most renowned conspiracy.

It’s the Victorian era in London. The city is in a state of disarray.

Fabled detective Sherlock Holmes has gone missing. The only person smart enough to find him, is ironically, the detective himself.

London has plummeted into a hotbed of intricate criminal activity now that the famous crime-solver is off the streets. In order to get London back to its (sort of) safe old self, Sherlock Holmes must be found and his kidnapper must be brought to justice!

Lestrade has brought in a stellar team of Scotland Yard’s finest detectives. Of course, none are quite as brainy as Sherlock Holmes, but they’re quite good. Perhaps they’re even clever enough to find the kidnapper?

Plus, Sherlock suspected that he might be in trouble and has left some clues behind that could aid you in your mission. You’ll need to solve this mystery under a lot of pressure. You have about 60 minutes until Holmes is killed and London is doomed to a world of crime.

Enjoy this mysterious Victorian adventure inspired by England’s most beloved detective.

Coming Soon

As you enter the first room, you’ll travel on a sleigh with Santa driving (of course) as part of a completely immersive and magical experience.

Once you’ve landed in the North Pole, the elf will help guide you to Santa’s Grotto and you’ll tell Santa himself what you’d like for Christmas, as well as get a fantastic present.

Whilst waiting for Santa, you can watch the elves get the tree ready for Christmas and get fully into the excitement of the festive season. You’ll then receive a nice warm shot of hot chocolate to keep you warm as you venture through upside down Lapland where trees hang from the ceiling and presents hang upside down too. Be careful though, it’s cold as you walk through so make sure you drink your hot chocolate!

The Escapologist Bar

Step into a world of mystery and mixology with a twist of secret garden.

A relaxing café and bar where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the shops. Whether your partner is shopping and you would like a sit down or you have finished an escape room, there’s enough space for you all to relax.

To book a table, please call 0113 512 2904.
