By far the best two games in London are at this venue. The Book of Secrets is top of so many peoples list of London game because it's packed with highly original, challenging puzzles and above all has a great cohesive storyline that makes sense from start to finish. It's a joy to play, not easy, and so much fun.

Excellent escape room, full of surprises, and when you think you're almost finished, there's so much more to go! There were two of us, almost our first room, and it took us just over the hour allowed, so great. Would totally recommend this escape room, especially for bigger groups!

The whole theme was great and quite different from other rooms in London. Time was running fast and there were a lot of twists but me and my 14 year old daughter managed to save the book before the magic disappears forever. Felt really good doing that.

This was a brilliant escape room adventure. There were 5 in our group, including our son, who slightly younger than the recommended 14 year+, actually proved to be better at solving the puzzles than the adults were! We all enjoyed the experience and found the puzzles challenging and fun. The storyline was very well thought out too. Our host was superb, he explained everything very well. Can't wait to do another Clue Adventure escape room in the future. Definitely recommend.

5 of us visited yesterday and we all had a fantastic time - can't recommend this highly enough.

There were a large variety of different challenges you had to solve, which were suitable for different ages and abilities.

Paul, the host, was excellent; really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

The room has been devised by 3 people, including a consultant on "The Crystal Maze"; all VERY well thought out! (Won't go into any details though as don't want to spoil it for anyone)

Good location too - easy to get to on the tube.

Book this up!!! You definitely won't regret it.

One of the best I've played. This game is the closest I've found to the ones you play on the computer. Packed with puzzles. Great story, leads you though a fun game, very different to usual themes. Well organised, fantastically challenging in a variety of type of clues and puzzles. The whole team was active throughout the entire game. It's not an easy one but even if you don't complete the room you won't be disappointed there's so much to do - we wanted to go back and do stuff again which has to be a sign of great puzzles.

Really enjoyed this one! Punch line is very clear and leads you all the way from beginning to the end. A lot of puzzles that are different and interesting. Quite different from other rooms in London. Highly recommended!
