Elephant and Castle in South London

Step back in time to the dark days of World War II at Escape Plan down at the Elephant and Castle in South London.  Captured by the Nazis, you have to escape a prison camp by following a trail of clues left by the only prisoner ever to successfully escape its perimeter. Another wartime experience is offered by Mission Breakout near Trafalgar Square – not only is it located deep underground in a former tube station, but corridors are pumped with dry ice the moment you enter making it incredibly atmospheric.



Holloway is well known for its prison, but inventive puzzle solvers may manage to escape the Inside Out Escape Room.  You really have to be good at codes to solve the puzzles and find the passwords to break free. Choose from Sherlock Holmes or a CSI themed room.


South Bermondsey

Fancy something eerie and immersive? Modern Fables in South Bermondsey may be the ideal choice.  Black and white films flicker over candlelit rooms in a darkened warehouse as you head for the Escapist bar to help out due to the owner’s disappearance.  Can you survive?


So, don’t lose your precious time, plan your visit to London this Christmas 2018 and stay at any of the serviced apartments in Central London and enjoy a blasting experience in the city with friends and family.
