Escape Rooms are the latest interactive and immersive activity to sweep the country (in fact the world!). If you love games and puzzles or just like trying new things then this is for you.
Whilst there are now several Escape Rooms about, we believe Oliver Cromwell's House offers something that no other Escape Room experience can - the location and the atmosphere. Launched in September 2016 the games have been designed around the heritage of the building and the connection with Oliver Cromwell although being a history geek will not help you one bit!
After a short briefing you will enter the Escape Room and find yourself in Cromwell's former Tithe Office, an original 17th century, oak panelled room, where Oliver would have counted the local taxation payments. No other location can offer this unique surrounding.
The current theme of this fun packed immersive adventure is set around a plot to murder Queen Victoria and bring about a new republic. The landlord of The Cromwell Arms (a throw back to when the building really was a pub in the 1800s) is deeply troubled and needs your assistance to prevent this unspeakable crime. The landlord is worried by the behaviour of the secretive men and women of the Lord Protectors League who have turned the snug bar of the pub into their operational headquarters. Your team has to search the room looking for clues and solving puzzles to unravel their plot against the life of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. Save yourselves and an innocent man from being implicated in their fiendish plot. But you only have 60 mins to work out what is being planned.
