Can you help? There have been multiple strange occurrences at the gallery recently, leading up to the missing artefacts. But not all is as it seems. 'The Caretaker' has disappeared too, with strange messages left in his stead. It's almost as though he's done this on purpose - but we know very little more.
We can supply the message from the caretaker, but have nothing else to go on.
Could you and your crack team come and help, and SOON!?

A fun magical journey that brings a smile to your face, lots of lovely moments with some great puzzles told in a linear fashion.

75 minute game with plenty to do. Thought this was a great game, thoroughly enjoyed the puzzles, the variety and the immersion, set design done nicely. A couple of points that could use a little finesse with how the game runs but these are minor niggles and would definitely recommend playing this if in the area. 

Reviews by escape room review sites

The Guardian of the Gallery doesn’t feel like your average escape room. You can tell that this is built by an enthusiast who wants to push boundaries and create something different. This room is challenging, yet fair, and will likely be a firm favourite on the enthusiast scene for a long time to come.
There’s a nice dose of humour present throughout the game together with effective, charming world-building, not harmed by the 75-minute running time, which allows greater immersion than a usual hour-long slot.
We will just come out and say it – this is probably one of the most immersive rooms we have completed in the UK. Often with UK escape rooms you feel somewhat immersed but you cant quite overlook the fact you are in an ex-office building, this place bucks that trend.
