What They Said..

Amazing experience: some of the best escape rooms we’ve played so far (and we’ve played some 70+ by now). Very nice, knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff, beautiful, thought-through design of the game and very enjoyable puzzles. Definitely go if you are in the area!
Fantastic first experience at The Escapement! Greeted from the very start by Lewis, who was witty, fun & full of life, even made me a hot chocolate which was a plus. What I enjoyed most was the fact we weren’t rushed, and they really made an effort with us, which you don’t always get with other places. The room was very enjoyable, well thought out and a great story line, so definitely looking forward to doing more rooms. Many thanks for a wonderful evening.
Went there today with my work friends. It’s a great experience and definitely a team building experience. Have booked again. We had a fantastic time.

My friends and I took on The Pit: The atmosphere and sense of place, combined with some ingenious puzzles and mechanisms, made for a room which blew us away. The team were all really friendly and Liam was a fab host whose commitment to the story elevated whole experience. Definitely one of the best rooms I've completed: I can't wait to come back and complete the other rooms!
