Don't let the shabby street and ordinary looking premises put you off - this is one of the most fun things I've ever done!!! If feels a bit pricey, but given the small scale and personal attention you get from the staff, we understand why it needs to cost what it does.

We didn't know what to expect thanks to the air of mystery that previous visitors respectfully maintain.And I shall try to do the same. In short, we all loved it!

We took our 18 year old daughter and her best friend, who are both Sherlock Holmes fans, and it's a perfect family activity as it helps to have a range of ages and thinking skills. Probably wouldn't recommend it for under 12s though as they may get frustrated because it is quite challenging (mentally, not physically).

If you like cryptic crosswords, then you MUST try it.

And that's all I'm going to say :-)

This is a fantastic event, very different to anything else. When you get in the room it takes you a while to get going and start to understand what is required of you. Towards the end you need to stay calm and focussed otherwise you will just end up in a flap and get nowhere! We did manage to get out with just 20 seconds to spare - apparently one of the lucky 50% that make it out!!!
When you look to doing this it may seem expensive, but it's worth every penny. Don't panic about how good you are with puzzles, nothing will prepare you for this anyway!

I was a little nervous before HintHunt, about not knowing what to expect and being locked in a room, but all of that goes out the window as soon as the timer starts. We didn't stop moving for the hour and any thirst/heat/tiredness/worry is all forgotten. On arrival we were sat in a small shabby reception area and given a brief introduction before being shown into the room. Then it was an hour of mayhem, searching high and low, trying to solve clues, getting utterly frustrated followed by the excitement of getting one step closer. The game host is watching from outside the whole time if you need anything (our pen ran out) and to give clues when you're completely stuck, unfortunately our clue screen seemed to stop working near the end and got stuck on one hint for about 20 minutes. I would definitely recommend this for groups of friends or families with older children.
