What is an Escape Room?

An Escape Room is a reality gaming activity in which a team of 2-6 players is placed in a dramatic situation in a room. The players must work together to resolve the situation by finding clues, solving puzzles, and working as a team within 90 minutes. The only way to win is teamwork.  Our Escape Room is located in the seaside town of Margate, in Kent.

You have 90 Minutes

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Our escape room in kent is like an adventure game. It involves you and your team being placed inside a room and having to solve puzzles and perform tasks in order to find your way out. Most escape rooms (including yours truly) create dramatic backstories and include special effects to liven up the experience.
Our missions involve small spaces that require crawling, flashing lights and smoke effects. We can modify these if you need but we require advance notice for that. We may not be able to modify the missions on the day of your booking.
No. There are some small spaces but we can modify the game so you can avoid those – however we will need prior notification for that. Game masters will be monitoring you constantly and you can leave any time you want to.
The games themselves are 90 minutes. Over and above that, we advise you to arrive a minimum of 5 minutes before your booking time so we can sign you in and brief you on the details of your chosen escape. After the game, we can arrange a 10 minutes’ debriefing to discuss the room and answer any questions you may have. So the entire experience will take between an hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours. * Please note that if you arrive late, you will be allowed to play but your time in the room may be reduced since we cannot keep the team that has booked the slot after yours waiting.
Anyone can play, however people under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Absolutely. No strangers.
Yes you can! An escapement experience is the ideal gift for a variety of occasions and suitable for just about anybody. In order to deepen the experience we offer printed cards within sealed envelopes and ‘Message in a bottle’ type vouchers, complete with parchment and sand. Choose your voucher here.
You should wear comfortable and sensible clothing. Try to avoid clothes that may tear off easily or have a lot of loose length that may get caught on corners. Please note, our Egyptian Exodus room escape has a non stain sand base. You will be required to wear sensible flat shoes.
Our business address is 65 Northdown Road, Margate CT9 2RJ. You can reach us easily by train, bus, or car. Our nearest train station is Margate, which is less than a mile away. Our nearest bus stop is the one opposite Sweyn Road (79 Northdown Road) which puts you almost immediately outside our building. The nearest car park is Trinity Square Car Park.
We look forward to making your time at this Kentian Escape Room an event you’ll never want to forget. So we do try our best to accommodate special requests but we do require advance notice. Please send us an email at info@escapementmargate.co.uk telling us what you need and we will do our best to do it.
This escape room in Kent allows only good old English courage, not Dutch courage.
If you’re under the influence, we will not allow you to participate in the escape.
