Time Out says
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.
A stone's throw from Broadway Market alongside the beautiful Regents Canal, we are accessible from Haggerston, Cambridge Heath and London Fields stations.
Just around the corner from great pubs, restaurants and a fantastic cocktail bar, Modern Fables' exciting new location gives you the opportunity for pre- or post- game drinks and food. And dont forget the picnic opportinities of London Fields! A destination not to be missed.
We set ourselves apart from other escape rooms by creating an intriguing story that immerses you right from the very start. You'll be met by odd characters who set you off on your adventure, immersing you in a story that feels like an adventure - not just a set of puzzles.
Escape to another world with Modern Fables.

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.
