New kids on the block (Oxford Street to be more specific), No Escape will have you attempting to evade a murderous dentist in just 60 minutes. As you arrive for your 'check-up', you and your team will be locked in the surgery room and forced to solve cryptic clues in order to escape. If you don't break free within the hour, your teeth may be all that remains...

No Escape London is hidden away on Oxford Street – quite a feat in itself! To find it you go into the Londis newsagent and to the left you’ll find several storeys of narrow stairs. At the very top of the building is the escape room.


The building is a little short on space, so we had to squeeze on to a little landing to wait for the group before hand to come down first, but once we reached the top the staff were very warm and welcoming.


Having checked out the website beforehand, I had slightly built up my fear of what would be inside the room of a murderous, serial killer dentist – instead I was pleased to find it was a plain white room set up like you’d expect most dentists, with some antique props and pieces of furniture.


For an escape room newbie the clues where the right side of challenging-but-not-impossible. We did initially escape the room early as it hadn’t been properly reset, meaning one of the padlocks hadn’t been closed properly and we were able to access some clues quicker than we should have, but we stayed in the room anyway to find those clues and still managed to escape with a fairly respectable nine minutes left.


If you’re new to escape rooms, then this place would be a good starting point to learn the basics of how the clue hunting works. But I suspect more regular escape room attendees might find it a little on the easy side.
