Locked in a Room


Very few activities immerse you in a world where you think of nothing except the task at hand. Locked In A Room does. It’s unique, it’s fantastic fun, it’s challenging, it’s pure escapism. You may be surprised on how well you automatically pull together in a unified team in unlocking the key to escape!

An unforgettable live escape room experience in London. Locked In A Room – London is ideal for large or small groups of friends looking to experience something completely different as a unique gift, corporate events, team building, B2B client entertainment and birthday parties.

Locked In A Room is the ideal venue to cultivate team spirit and give employees a new and unique experience that they will be talking about for weeks! Our 13 purpose-built escape rooms run on two highly themed identical formats, enabling up to 78 persons at full capacity to compete head to head in groups of up to six players in a frantic race against time and other rooms. The identical format obviously adds a significant edge to the friendly but competitive nature of the whole experience… as if the countdown clock wasn’t bad enough!

Once clients exit the reception area, they find themselves entering the strange world of Professor Samuel Pottenger. Upon entry to the rooms they are faced with a non-physical, yet exhilarating, completely immersive race against the clock. Cryptic clues, tests and puzzles are aimed at stretching usual thought processes. Interaction is essential within the group to work out how they will complete the tasks in order to escape from the room within 60 minutes.
