Some great tech and nicely thought out puzzles. I particularly enjoyed the mission and score board for this as an alternate focus to escaping. The puzzles fit the story and style very well.

Extremely enjoyable - pushing around squadrons on a massive map is a fantastic feeling. Go play, one of the best London has to offer!

(Escape Plan has more than one London location - this is the one in Kennington)

Fantastic room with brilliant GM, lovely location, amazing set dressing and some extra challenges in terms of points (got all bar one) to give you more to do as experienced players. Absolutely recommend.

It's always sad to see a high quality game close, but the blow is softened when the reason is to allow the venue to create a new game in its place. That was the case with Escape Plan, whose much-loved first game shut down last summer to make way for its sequel.
Their new game is again set in the Second World War, but this time in Britain preparing for the final assault of the Luftwaffe. Your task is to get into the Operations Room and get as many air squadrons as possible ready to defend their ...
A game that I thoroughly enjoyed playing. It may lack some of the high-end decoration of some London venues, but it more than makes up for that with consistent theming, a striking centrepiece, plentiful puzzles and a tension-filled finale that will keep even the most experienced team stressed till the very end.
Do you ever put off doing something because you really want to do it but you feel that the expectation may not live up to the hype? That is why it has taken us so long to do Battle for Britain, now I wish we’d done it sooner!
I have to admit, I’m a sucker for huge, game-long meta puzzles. A big task that’s obvious from the start that you’re building towards for the entire game. The Battle For Britain delivers this in spades, and it truly is a “huge” puzzle.
It's 1940, and the Luftwaffe have launched a full scale attack on southern England. We have only 60 minutes to access the operations room and fight back! Hold on to your moustaches, we're going in!
Launch the Battle of Britain by mobilising the RAF from a secret air base and make sure you save yourselves.
