Engaging puzzles, interesting backstory and a fun hour spent trying to escape! Petra, our host, was excellent and we had a great time. There was an essential item missing from the room which slowed us down, and some changes had recently been made that were...More

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighborhood that supports a long string of

arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking

Creo que la sala 'Cutting Room' podria ser bastante dificil si hablas ingles muy bien. Pero los empleados de Summerhall ayudan mucho con las rompecabezas!
