Escape Rooms

There’s nothing like being locked in a room full of lasers to really tickle the old adrenaline glands, especially when every beam broken means a penalty for your team. Once you’ve established which of your three-to-six players is most nimble, Escape Rooms’ one-hour games will confront you with plenty of exciting effects to keep you all on your toes. Secret compartments suddenly reveal themselves, locked doors spring into action, alarms add a new level to your collective panic… and that’s all on top of the riddles, puzzles, codes and clues you have to find and solve to complete your mission. Whether you manage to complete the challenge or end up begging for clues right into the closing minutes, this is a satisfying and unpredictable hour of brain-teasing fun. There are two themed games to choose from, one based in the cursed chamber of an Egyptian pharaoh, and the other a room in the British Museum containing a precious Chinese porcelain which needs returning to its rightful owner. Book in advance (there's another in Angel, if you can't get in).

Escape Rooms near London Bridge is a convenient and acceptable incarnation of the Escape Games craze, but it’s far from the best you can get.


We booked as a party of six for New Year’s Day, and this was one of the only escape rooms available. On arrival, staff were very friendly and we were provided with lockers, a glass of water and toilet access, which is always a good start.


We played Room 1 – A Mysterious Journey, based on the concept of time travel and a missing Chinese vase. It started well, with a fun and interesting first task/introduction. However, it went slightly downhill from there. The puzzles weren't as engaging as I’d experienced elsewhere, and there was less to rummage about and play with. The theme, too, was a bit lacklustre, and more could have been done to immerse you in the plot.  


Although there were a fair few red herrings, there just wasn’t enough to fill the time. Despite 4 out of the 6 players being newbies, we still escaped with 17 minutes to spare, which was a good achievement, but did perhaps demonstrate that there wasn't enough to keep us busy.


Overall, it was well-run and fairly fun, but there are far better escape rooms in London. I’d rank HintHunt, Omescape, Clue Quest and Escape Plan above this venue.

Fantastic team building exercise. Really good fun and you don’t realise how quickly that hour goes! I organised this for my team at work, we chose the Pharaoh Room and obviously completed it with only 3 clues and with 2 minutes to spare.

I would try to complete the other rooms with friends as a social event too, brilliant laugh!

My friend arranged for us and my boyfriend to go to Escape Rooms as a way of meeting and bonding with her new guy. After being a bit sceptical at first that this would have been a bit too hands on and ‘awkward’ I can safely say that this was a perfect first double date!! We all had so much fun, it forced us to split into various teams such as girls v boys, couples etc and not in a competitive way but rather because we all excelled in different areas that we then bounced off one another in. Our induction was clearly spelled out to us, we knew exactly what to do and expect and the element of surprise and curiosity was very exciting. We completed the Pharoah's Chamber and I can’t wait for us to organise round 2 in a different room! Whilst some clues were quite cryptic, and some way more difficult than others, that is the whole point, to really get you thinking and you can always revert to your one clue should you need to!

This was so much fun however I think it lacks the refinement that I expected. It was quite chilled and the staff, although friendly, weren't very professional. When we first got in to the room I started to feel a little disappointed as the clues were really tough however we persisted and soon we really got in to it - he clues are tough but do-able. I do agree with other reviewers that the whole concept of the room didn't really make sense.The puzzles are all individual so you are just scrabbling around trying to see which clues are for which puzzles. Overall a kind of stressful experience. I would recommend an escape room to friends or colleagues however perhaps another venue/company?


Did the Pharaoh's Tomb as a group of six first-timers and had a blast. Staff were friendly, professional and helpful when required. We had a tech issue that was quickly fixed without a major impact on the game and were able to just about finish the room and escape with our treasure. There are some dependencies between puzzles, so watch out for those.

Would definitely recommend and will be planning a visit to Room 33 in the near future!


We have done a few escape rooms and tried the Egyptian room at Escape rooms a couple of months ago. Unfortunately we found it underwhelming. The puzzles just didn't hang together and flow logically. I'd avoid this one.


We played Room 33 as a team of 5, which was very high tech, with lasers and electro-glass and stuff, but the puzzles were incredibly hard, which was demoralising at times.  


Fun, challenging and exciting! A great evenings entertainment! Room 33 is just as good as The Pharaho's Chamber! 


A hour well spend with friends. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Highly recommended..
