*The UK’s best-rated Escape Room (official ranking on TripAdvisor 2018, 2019, 2020)

Play our exhilarating escape rooms and step into a world of imagination.

The Escapement is a multi award-winning escape room venue with a focus on immersion and realism. We create themed scenarios that are filled with puzzles, conundrums and riddles. Each experience is carefully crafted and playable by 2-6 players:

Pirates of Polaris - A swash-bucklin’ adventure to take on the seven seas! Climb aboard a pirate ship crafted using real parts of a 130 year old ship.

Egyptian Exodus - An enchanting quest through a Pharaoh's tomb filled with sand, scent, and treasures galore.

The Pit - A fun-filled, action-packed journey to the centre of the world. Descend into the depths of The Pit, ride a mine cart, and figure out why the earth has stopped spinning.

Access Information

Our missions involve small spaces that require crawling, flashing lights and smoke effects. 

We can modify these if you need but we require advance notice. We may not be able to modify the missions on the day of your booking.

Game masters will be monitoring you constantly and you can leave any time you want to.

Our nearest bus stop is the one opposite Sweyn Road (79 Northdown Road), which puts you almost immediately outside our building. The nearest car park is Trinity Square (CT9 1LZ), which has 6 disabled bays.
