Silence is advertised with: This Halloween, investigate the mystery of the Southwark Murder. Join Rev. Stanley Park as you unravel the secrets of a hideous murder in the vain hope of…

Variant 31

On Saturday evening I headed up to central London to give the newly opened Variant 31 a whirl. They’ve had a lot of technical issues and opening date delays, and reviews of the preview dates were extremely mixed, so I was looking forward to finding out for myself what this new London attraction is all…

Fox In A Box – Zodiac Killer

Last night we were invited to try out Fox In A Box‘s Zodiac Killer room, courtesy of Love Popups London. Fox In A Box is an escape room franchise company, their London location is in Dalston, just steps from the Overground and really easy to find. They have three different rooms, Zodiac Killer, The Bunker,…

Colab Factory’s The Copycat

On Wednesday I was invited to check out Colab Factory‘s new horror experience, so along with other members of Love Popups London, we headed down to Borough to try The Copycat. Advertised as part immersive theatre, part escape room, we were very curious to see how this one played out. It’s always difficult to write…

Horror

When I first heard about Jakop Ahlbom’s Horror presented by Sadlers Wells, I was intrigued. A horror film produced for the stage? Count me in! Horror tells the story of a young woman returning to her family home with two friends to discover what happened to her older sister. The play is eerie and unsettling from the…

Poppa Plock’s Wonky Workshop

After playing Lady Chastity’s Reserve and really enjoying it, we jist had to try out Handmade Mysteries‘ new game, Poppa Plock’s Wonky Workshop. It’s located in the beautiful The Depot pub in north London. We gathered in the pub for a drink and waited for our time slot. A few minutes later, a man dressed as a toy soldier picked…

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…

The 12 Deaths Of Christmas

As an escape room aficionado I had heard about Room Escape Southend, a company that organsises pop-up escape rooms, usually with a horror theme, for a few months at a time before switching to a different theme. We decided to get into the holiday spirit by visiting their 12 Deaths Of Christmas room, themed around a…

HOWL – immersive ghost story

In the run up to Halloween I like to check out creepy and spook events around London. This one was advertised as an immersive ghost hunt slash seance kind of thing, taking place in one of those tiny pub theatres which are always worth a visit. From the get go our host was in character,…

Locked In A Room With A Zombie

I organised a group of friends to fill all 12 slots for this escape room adventure. You can book individual tickets for this experience, but I figured a full group of friends would be perfect. When we arrived, we were greeted by a young man in a lab coat who explained the rules while constantly…
