About
Locked In A Room is the home of the UK's largest escape venues. Participants are locked in a room with a series of tests, puzzles and clues that combined allow the unlocking of the rooms mystery and hopefully a successful escape, challenging them every step of the way. As you enter the room you will initially stand there bewildered and then... IT BEGINS!

We took on the hardest room (TimeLock) and we managed to escape with 4 minute to spare! I went with my 2 partners so we were just a group of three. You can imagine our surprise when the little bell rang signifying we were free!

The room was so well thought out and each clue and activity to do was pretty clear without being obvious. When you get stuck, little clues flash up on a scree which is really helpful but they don't give too much away nor pop up without actually giving you a chance to figure it out yourself.

The staff were incredibly friendly and were easy to have a laugh with too. I think staff you can have a joke with always makes this type of experience even better.

It's not a cheap activity but it is so so worth it in my opinion. We're looking to book again soon - Just wish they had more rooms so we could come back more than 3 times!

The only thing only thing that put a slight dampener on the evening were the big group of kids that wouldn't quieten down during the introduction story or safety briefing and the group of anti maskers - the the venues or staff fault though so still a 5 star night on their part!

I have been to a few escape rooms and I found this one lacked a story line and the puzzles didnt make much sense. There were lots of props that felt like they made sense with the room and the story, but they were irrelevant. We attended the 8pm slot, which is the last one before they closed and we felt like we were being hurried out to finish. They gave us the answer to open the door early, which we didnt mind since we were 5 minutes over the time, but then the manager rushed us back in to finish the escape room. Once we went back in, another member of staff lingered around us and began resetting the room, which completely ruined the experience, and told us all the answers to crack the final puzzles. This really really ruined the experience, especially since when we left the room there were still more teams to finish their rooms and therefore no need to hurry us along! Overall, there are much much better immersive escape rooms, like Modern Fables in London. they are amazing ! This one was below average. Waste of money.

We decided to try this for a work Christmas evening which we followed with a nice meal.
Arrived in the building to a warm welcome, the staff were very friendly and looked the part. We were a party of 8 people so two rooms of the same difficulty were used.
Upon entering the room, it was well laid out with lots of props. We had some difficulty in starting our investigation but some clues were given on a TV screen in the corner of the room.
Overall, a very good time was had by all. We did get locked in, but we were only 20 seconds away from the getting out
Would recommend. Its also good for Team building too.

Really enjoyed our hour trying to escape from Locked In A Room! The setting and scene were really imaginative and exciting and the clues were so, so clever. We had so much fun trying to crack the codes and such a rewarding feeling when you find another key!! We definitely needed the prompts that appeared on the screen at intervals when we were struggling but we did manage to get out (although the staff kindly allowed us a few extra minutes over and above the hour as we were so very close!) I would definitely highly recommend Locked In A Room, compared to other activities and considering the content, I feel it is good value. Only criticism is that it was very warm in the room so if we go again (which we will) we will leave the jumpers at home!!

It was really cool, many interesting puzzles. We will definitely go again. It was just my partner and I and as beginners we managed to get really close, only 2 puzzles left until we would’ve finished.

Really impressed with locked in a room. I had to change the date I had initially booked. They responded to my request promptly with no additional costs as it was over 5 days before. All the staff were lovely and we all enjoyed the experience. Would recommend and will probably return and try a different escape room there.

A couple of us decided very last minute to play and we had the best time! Will definitely go again next time we are in town!

Hello Shelleyboulter, Thank you so much for your review, we had a great time with your team also! We all try to keep the energy up as some arrive with pre game nerve and trepidation, we are so happy you found the clues helpful. We hope to see you all again soon. Kind regards Sammy
