Travelled to Blickling during Easter to complete the escape game, and couldn't be happier! Worked really well as a group of 10, (normally too big to do an escape room all together), and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. Would 100% recommend - just bring a coat as the church is nippy!

On arriving on easter day, we met the person that was in charge of the escape room. To be told the church had been double booked, through no error of their own, the lady seemed as disappointed as we were that our game could not go ahead and was very apologetic and offered as an alternative. However in the meantime the double booking was resolved and we were told our game could go ahead. It was very enjoyable and great fun. I would like to mention that the people running the experience were amazing and really did care that you had a great time. Definitely worth doing and I would recommend, which I have already to people that have asked about escape rooms.

I bought this as 40th birthday present for my sister in law. We had an awesome time and loved every minute - we are now addicted to escape rooms!!

There were 8 of use who had a fantastic time solving all the clues in this beautiful church to get Anne Boleyn to the alter. We can not wait to try the rooms at Norwich. Tip: use your coins. We then went to The Buckinghamshire Arms and had a lovely meal. Would highly recommend the history mystery rooms and the pub

Six of us took part in this game to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday. It was not an escape room in the traditional sense but was just as much fun. Problem solving and challenging puzzles but with the difference of having a live games mistress whom you needed to bribe made this a very enjoyable experience. Be warned in winter you need to wrap up warm as this takes place in the church on the Blickling Estate and it can be chilly although we became so engaged with the game you forgot about the cold.. Despite knowing it wouldn't end well for her we successfully managed to get Anne Bolewyn to the altar. We can also highly recommended The Black boys public House in Aylsham where we enjoyed a fabulous Sunday lunch (advisable to book)and returned there for coffee afterwards
