Escape with Escapist

SOS = Save Our Skins! You are shut in a basement at the Foresaken Farmhouse or the middle of a Mayan Temple. Have you got what it takes to get out? You have 60 minutes starting now!


  • Exciting new concept in entertainment
  • Two fully themed rooms
  • Graphic imagery and themes
  • Solve the puzzles and riddles to find your way out

Enter a parallel universe and kiss reality goodbye.

In one scenario your bus breaks down by an old farmhouse. Your guide goes to find help and does not return. When you search for him, you find him bloodied and bound. The crazed farmhouse owner is after you and you have locked yourself in the basement! How will you get out?

In another scenario, you find yourself on a journey to a Mayan Temple as an archaeologist with a cursed Mayan artefact that needs to be returned there before the world ends!

Either way, you have a room full of clues and an hour to work it all out and hopefully escape!

This is innovative, intelligent and challenging entertainment at its best. Pit yourself against yourself and the clock, think outside the box whilst inside the box!

The Escapist Eatery is also on hand to cater to feed and water busy escape plotting minds with delicious sweets and savouries, amazing coffee and the best quality teas from Harney and Sons.

Escapist is the perfect place for a group of friends, a stag or hens bash, or a birthday party.

Are you looking for the perfect team building event? Look no further, escaping requires teamwork and promotes group thinking, cohesiveness and time management skills.

Another great morning

This was our second time going to Escapist. We did Bewitched with 4 people in 2 teams. Was a really well set up co-op locked room. Had some fantastically good snacks after, and played board games for a bit after. Will go back for the last room sometime soon!

At the beginning they gave us instructions for the escape room. Then we started the game, which was really fun. Whenever we needed they gave us clues to solve the next task. After finishing the escape game we got a hot drink and a cake and had time to play board games from their shelves. This was all included in the prize.

Great morning with friends

Had a great time with the locked room. And the staff went out of their way to cater for one of our group. The coffee was great too. We ran out of time to play board games but will definitely aim to next time. I really hope this business does well.
