Codebreakers – Mission Breakout

A friend of mine organised a team to try Mission Breakout, a WWII themed escape room situated in an old, disused tube station. South Kentish Town station was closed in 1924 and was subsequently used as an air raid shelter when needed. The building alone is definitely worth a visit! This room is fully immersive, which…

Morningstar – Parabolic Theatre

Love pop-ups London invited me along to this one, so I gathered with the other attendants in Croydon to find out what this was all about. We had all received confusingly interesting emails detailing a secret research mission and were curious and excited to find out what this immersive horror theatre would bring. As specified in…

Holi at Cinnamon Kitchen

Holi! Who doesn’t love the brightness and positive atmosphere this festival of colours brings with it! I heard about Holi In The City through Love Pop-Ups London and wanted to try it with a group of friends. When we arrived at Cinnamon Kitchen, I realised that this was more commercial entertainment than spring festival. Of course I should have…

The MMORPG Show

The MMORPG Show has snapped up a six month residency at the Angel comendy Club and of course we had to make our way there to witness yet another quest! To preface this, I have seen this show before, several times, and I absolutely love it. It’s different every time as it’s mostly improvised around a set structure, so…

Orbits

The Drayton Arms Pub Theatre was hosting a run of Orbits, a play about larger-than-life German playwright Berthold Brecht and Hollywood star Charles Laughton, following their interactions and struggles while translating Brecht’s play Life Of Galileo. I love the theatre pub culture in London, many smaller pubs have a, usually painted solid black, room for small theatre groups…

Jail Escape – Canterbury Escape Room

The second Canterbury escape room we tried was the Jail Escape from Canterbury Escape Room. This one is themed around a medieval jail cell that your team needs to break out of. To begin with, we were all shakled together with a long chain and shuffled into the first room to begin our quest. The first…

Alien Attack – Escape Kent

During our trip to Canterbury, we visited two escape room companies, the only two that existed in the town at the time. The first one was Escape Kent. As of the time of writing this, they had two rooms available, Alien Attack and Escape The Serialkiller. We decided on the Alien Attack room, in which you’re…

Canterbury Ghost Tour

I am a big fan of ghost tours, not because I believe in the supernatural much, but because they usually come with great historical and social stories that I find interesting. They’re usually quite entertaining too. When we took a trip to Canterbury, I found the Canterbury Ghost Tour, which was highly recommended. Little did we…

Canterbury Tales

During our trip through Canterbury, we just had to give this one a go! The iconic Canterbury tales as a walk-through attraction! Tours run quite often and include a free audio guide thingy, which is super helpful in hearing the actual stories being told. Our group was led into the first room, which is the inside of…

Canterbury River Tours

I took a trip to Canterbury with a small group of friends recently and we decided to do quite a bit of the tourist program. One of the obvious stops is a river boat tour! Such a cheesy cliché, had to be done! We picked a random time slot and were led down a few…

Escape From Alcatrax – Adventox

This is a sequel to Adventox – Mission X, as we did both rooms on the same night. After averting a missile being launched into London, we gave our feedback to the owners and were again really lucky in being offered to preview the second room, Alcatraz, after a short break. This one has more of…

Mission X – Adventox

I was lucky to snap up a preview slot with Adventox, a new escape game company in Shepherd’s Bush. They’re in a super convenient location, which is rare for this type of company, often warehouses, industrial areas, or large spaces in office buildings are used for escape games; Adventox have found a beautiful, slick space inside…
