It had been a while since Iโ€™d visited Escape Londonโ€™s Shepherds Bush branch, and I was pleased to find theyโ€™ve upgraded their entrance: the venue is still down a narrow staircase, but itโ€™s now a much more attractively appointed staircase, fronted by a more clearly marked doorway. The Escape franchise tends to operate multiple copies of its games in different branches, but as one of its newer games Overthrone currently only operates in London, Leicester and Basildon.
The name reflects the gameโ€™s...

The second room we did in our day out at Escape Basildon, a very different room, but equally impressive as the first, room designed beautifully, and looked amazing, some tricky puzzles, but all very good. Definitely worth the trip. 

The King is dead! The throne is up for grabs, but will we have what it takes to solve the room and rule?
Amazingly, these guys have managed to pull off an authentic looking castle in the back of an old retail unit!
