Pirate Jail!

Another voucher from Planet Offers saw my family storming through a swashbuckling escape.


Escape the brig and steal the Captainโ€™s treasure.


Fun, but relatively simple- I think only one clue was needed.


Pirate-themed rooms are my favourite, and this one didnโ€™t disappoint. It had everything youโ€™d expect on a galleon: rats, guns, swords and a brig.

Good game with a mixture of puzzles. The room had been decorated well to fit with the theme.

We really enjoyed this escape room, especially the first puzzle which took us ages to crack! Lots of good fun to be had, the theme throughout is on point and you feel like a pirate as you're completing the puzzles.

Some good puzzles, lots of fun. Have felt disappointed at getting out so quickly in other places but because this one was so fun we didn't.

Reviews by escape room review sites

The UK's largest escape room franchise has been busy this year, with new branches popping up across the country. In London they've added a branch in Shadwell to the existing one in West London to double the number of games on offer. Seven Seas is one of the new additions, and uses a pirate theme.

My experience with Escape is that they usually provide beginner-friendly rooms that are reliably entertaining as mainstream escape experiences. My first impression on entering this one was that they've...

A pretty game with some fun puzzles, but our enjoyment was severely impaired by the ambiguity of a couple of solutions. If you get easily frustrated, you should definitely steer clear of this experience but if not, then there's definitely some fun to be had.
If youโ€™ve done rooms at Escape Peterborough before then this room will be nothing like them. Theyโ€™ve really upped their game with this room and the only rival for it there is The Cabin. Good theming, decent puzzles (although padlock heavy), but swash-buckling fun

Initial impressions as we walked in the room; it was well decorated and themed, creating an authentic atmosphere.Initially you start off in two split locked spaces, searching around for what you need to get out, communicating all the while between the groups.
