Love the fact it's themed from the moment you arrive with the professor greeting you at the door. Rooms are clever and fun. We escaped the gran's flat room but sadly not the murder. Great that it was all explained at the end though!

As Escape Room virgins we have nothing to compare it to. However, we did the Alleyway (Dark-ish but obviously not pitch black) and it was great fun. We did it with our 3 kids (15,21 & 25) which felt like the right number of people...More

We have completed 3 of the rooms at Clockwork Escapes, all were extremely well thought out with fantastic attention to detail. Most recent visit was 'Starpoint Alpha' which was challenging and very professionally constructed. Professor is also a great host. Highly recommended!

Having done quite a few escape rooms we thought we’d give one closer to home a go! Our games host was brilliant - a very flamboyant individual who set the scene brilliantly! What we like about this was that it wasn’t just about escaping- it...More

An okay experience badly let down by the appalling language of the host (f word every five seconds - totally unacceptable for a family group). The rooms are fairly tatty and tired, and clearly put together as cheaply as possible without any real attention to...More

Not in any of our current rooms, I'm afraid. All the tests we've run show that there just isn't enough space nor enough to keep 8 people busy and having fun. However, our next room is hopefully going to be for 2 - 8... More
