Fun, fun and more fun
Nov 2021
It was really really fun! Samantha was great in bringing the whole experience to life. She treated us very well and was witty and cheeky whenever need ! The clues and whole atmosphere was so realistic. The choice of music was really appropriate too!

A great room, well worth a visit!
Nov 2021 • Couples
Having played quite a few escape rooms (heading rapidly towards 100), I've seen most themes of escape room, but Lady Chastity's was something completely different. Was amazing by being greated by a character, Gabriel, swept up into the room and given the background of the story. It all flowed amazingly into the start of the room, and wow what a treat. The room is amazingly full of beautiful things to look at, and some super cool unique puzzles! Wasn't even upset that we didn't quite finish this game, as we failed to follow the most simple of instructions on how to start the game, so I recommend taking Gabriel seriously in what they say! Samantha was an amazing GM, stayed hilariously in character throughout, and after even had time for a little chat and some stories which always rounds up a game nicely. Highly recommend this game to everyone, though maybe a little tough for beginners, an amazing price for an amazing room in London!

A different twist on an escape room
Mar 2020
We booked this late as we had some spare time in London and looked like an interesting room. On arrival we weren't too sure where to head to but spoke to the barman in the pub to wait in the bar and our host would be down to get us. Gabriel (Tom) arrived in full character and lead us to the room, and gave us the briefing / background as to what the challenge was.
We made it through the game, with only having to use a couple of clues. The end prize was a pleasant surprise too.
The room is an different concept to other escape rooms, you could probably class this more as a challenge room as you don't have to escape as such, but there is a target to work towards.
Tom was great throughout and guided / helped as requested by us.
We do intend to try one of the outdoor games from Homemade during the year as well.

Great twist on the escape room concept
Feb 2020 • Friends
I visited with a few friends who all enjoy escape rooms, this one paid so much attention to detail, very immersive, and our Gabriel, Tom, was funny and got us into the spirit. We loved it

Amazing!
Jan 2020 • Couples
We booked this as our first escape room experience and had an incredible time. Our host ‘Gabriel’ (the lovely Samantha) put us at ease immediately and really set up the scene. We were absolutely terrible and she was such a great help. I would suggest a team bigger than two people if you’re a novice (like us), but you’ll have an incredible time regardless!

Great for some, not for me.
Jan 2020
Not being sure what to expect, the character "Gabriel" came down to greet us without a briefing beforehand. This took me by surprise. The entirety of the preamble was innuendo, swearing and sex jokes, which to be honest just made the whole experience awkward, I felt uncomfortable the entirety of the time I was there.

The set design was great, the puzzles pretty low tech but good, and the host was pleasant and remained in character throughout. If you know what you're getting yourself in for, and the style is your kind of thing, you'll love it.

I'm 100% sure this is an amazing and hilarious experience for the right people. I'm just not the target audience.

Perfect balance of difficulty and attention to detail on set
Dec 2019
My friends and I took part in this escape room last week and thoroughly enjoyed it! We have done about 20 escape rooms together and would consider this to be a 3/5 for difficulty. What makes it such a great experience is the immersion, managed brilliantly by the host Samantha, as well as the quality of the set.

6 of us attempted to escape the room and I would say that is perhaps one too many given the size of the room but nevertheless an enjoyable evening for all. There is certainly enough to be getting on with!

Thank you so much Samantha for being an incredible host. Your charm and wit was a breath of fresh air!

Had a Brilliant time. Didn't know what to expect and we LOVED it. Samantha was a talented hostess - extremely entertaining and made us laugh. Probably a unique experience in escape rooms. Do it!

Brilliant, Immersive Escape Room In North London
Dec 2019
This escape room was very well planned, with lots of effort put into dressing the room, making the story immersive and the (mostly) chronological order of the clues. The puzzles themselves are quite challenging at times, but certainly not impossible.

There are plenty of brilliant twists and a few surprises in store too!

The only negatives were that the cramped initial briefing room, which also holds everyones coats, could be briefed a little better, and one of the props wasn't reset properly. This didn’t affect the outcome of the game as we only had 5-minutes left, but it was frustrating that the clue wasn’t in chronological order.

Overall, it is a brilliant experience and a lot of fun, with a spooky, dark-themed room and a host that stayed in character throughout.

Plus, once you’ve finished, you can head downstairs for a beer or gin, and a £9.50 plate of pie, mash and gravy – winning!
