Few people know about the Brighthelm Diamond, a jewel of epic value. It was purchased by four of Brighton’s most influential developers and has been hidden, for if ever the city was in dire need.
But now, Brighton is in danger of losing it, as its whereabouts have been revealed to the worst kind of people. It is only a matter of time before it is stolen and auctioned off. You must break into the jeweller where it is hidden and save the treasure for the sake of the city.
Can you and your team pull off this heroic heist to save a part of Brighton heritage?

It's easy to see why so many rate this room as one of the best in the UK. The theming is top notch and the puzzles are really well thought out. This is one room which really evolves over the course of the hour with things opening up and new secrets getting revealed. It's beautiful how the game pans out. Definitely not one to miss!

Not hard to see why it's number one. Phenomenally thought out and decorated and our host was absolutely superb.

We really, really enjoyed this game. 

There aren't many games like it and it's definitely full of wow moments. It's hard to say anything else without giving away any spoilers. 

I would highly recommend this game to any team. It's well worth the trip to Brighton, if just for this game!!!

Loot the Lanes has a reputation for being one of the best games in the UK and for good reason.  The theming is brilliant, creating a game set in the famous jewellery district of Brighton.  The puzzles were great fun but challenging, which gives alot of satisfaction when solved.   We only just escaped as a 2 but we had an awesome time from beginning to end.  Pier Pressure do escape rooms like they should be, thematic, logical and fun.  Definitely in my top 3.  Go and play!

Reviews by escape room review sites

Loot The Lanes should need little introduction. It's occupied the #1 slot on this site's rankings of UK games for far longer than any of its rivals, and it was the highest ranked UK game in the TERPECA awards in 2019, 2020 and 2021. As a result it's been top of my list of games to play for an unconscionably long time, with a visit delayed by a combination of the pandemic and the fiddly logistics of organising a group for a Brighton trip. It officially requires at least four players, but is playa...

A beautiful room that's a joy to spend time in. The puzzles are well-presented, there are moments of theatre at several points and there's a clear finale that makes the game end on a high.
Loot the Lanes contains a real sense of awe that is often lacking in escape rooms and is a true testament to the team at Pier Pressure. Everything about this game is first rate and I can easily see why this game is consistently rated as the best, or one of the best in the UK. It’s a must play.
