When we first open a time portal we send one of our scientists back to make sure everything is ok and it is all safe and stable - we sent Edith, but unfortunately she hasn’t returned… We’ve now lost communication with her, but we do know that she was trying to shut the portal down when something stopped her. We need your team to finish the job - we would go ourselves but we’re too scared.

Especially with only two people, this room is super scary!! The spooky atmosphere gets you from the start, and then there are the jump scares...

The theming is consistently well done throughout. When we played one puzzle hadn’t been re-set properly and the key was just hanging there, which was a shame as it meant we missed out on that part of the room. Other than that, all the puzzles were effective and fitted in with the creepy-Victorian-seamstress vibe.

If you wanna be scared and you’re in the East Midlands, this room is a must!

Edith is an unusual beast of an escape room, one that you might love or might find not to your taste, but which you'll definitely remember. Personally I thought it was outstanding and hilarious.
The game is named after a missing operative from your time travel agency, who went through a new time portal then vanished in the process of trying to shut it down. Your job is to go through the same portal, work out if it's safe (spoiler: it's not), then shut it down and escape.
From the rather specta...
A fantastically scary game that I'd recommend to anyone who likes that genre of rooms. A wonderful sense of exploration combined with the actor interactions really help make Edith an intimidating experience.
Truly the most terrifying experience I’ve ever had. It’s an atmospheric and (unfortunately for your nerves) truly immersive game. You’ll struggle to find one scarier. It’s also got some real moments of humour that really lighten the mood.
