Modern Fables isn’t just an escape game but a borderline immersive experience. You’re told that you’re heading to a bar called The Escapist to help out due to the owner’s disappearance.
On arrival, you walk into an eerie warehouse space where black-and-white films flicker over candlelit room. A slightly unsettling barman appears, takes you into a recreation pub and unnervingly gives you the story of the mysterious vanishing of the landlady, while 1940s jazz crackles from a radio. You’re left alone, you find a secret door and suddenly you’re plunged into the mystery around the owner’s disappearance, taking you through a series of inventive challenges and impressively built sets whose dedication to a consistent backstory is a cut above most other London efforts.
Is its location a bit off the beaten track? Yes. Is it also one of the most well-thought-through escape games that London’s seen in a long time? Also yes. Other escape games take note: the bar has just been raised.
Rumours and strange occurrences have led to Lavinia and her bar to being shunned. The increasingly erratic Lavinia now seems to be missing...
Lavinia has always had a keen sense of adventure, sometimes crossing the globe at a moment’s notice. Recently her trips have seemed more frequent and her behaviour more secretive...
...possibly since she started uncovering strange truths about her late grandfather.
Lavinia’s loyal and long-suffering friend Alfie needs your help to get the bar back to its former glory while she’s away on her latest clandestine mission.
What’s she up to? Why the obsession with her grandfather? Will she ever return?
What will pique your curiosity? Surely Alfie won’t notice if you have a quick snoop while he’s not looking…
For an hour, lead your team to find clues that uncover Lavinia’s secrets.
The Escapist is for teams of between 2 - 6 people and is based in South Bermondsey, just one nifty stop from London Bridge station in South London.
Using, sights, sounds, smell and touch we’ll transport you to Lavinia’s world and ignite your sense of adventure.
We set ourselves apart from other escape rooms by creating site-specific, story-led games focussed on immersing players in unique sensory stories.
Escape to another world with Modern Fables’ award-winning escape room, The Escapist.

I've done a few escape rooms but this one is really good! There's a real sense of theatre and atmosphere when you're doing it. It's clearly been put together with a lot of love and care.
Excellent atmosphere amazing themed rooms and wonderful staff! I would definitely recommend to visit it.
