Cackling all the way – Escape London Witchcraft and Wizardry

We went along to Escape London‘s Witchcraft & Wizardry room on a complimentary basis in where we got to experience their Witchcraft and Wizardry room which is inspired by such films at Harry Potter and The Witches of Eastwick.

After having done several other escape rooms (Taken, Seven Seas and The Cabin) of theirs and with them all being exceptionally fun and unique I was really looking forward to trying to escape from this magical one!

More about Escape London

Escape London run various escape rooms:

  • Witchcraft and Wizardry
  • Area 51
  • The Da Vinci Room
  • Taken
  • Escape the Seven Seas
  • The Cabin

All of which require solving puzzles and clues. Break the codes and find the keys to release yourself to freedom from any of their escape rooms.

Each of their locations has a large enough space to wait in. So if you are early you can keep yourself amused with the plenty of challenging mini puzzles such as the Rubix Cube to play with. So if you are waiting for friends, family or colleagues or for your time slot you won’t get bored. There is also some lockers to store your coats and bags in whilst you are locked in a room.


Wichcraft and Wizardry

Me and my fellow team of students (community members of Love Pop Ups London) we entered the school of magic but we were tricked and we all got locked in by an evil professor so the escape was on and we only had one hour to do this within before he returns and possibly turning us all into frogs.  With us being new students and not having learnt any spells or witchcraft as yet we could not magically conjure up any spells to unlock the door to escape and we certainly did not want to be turned into a frog that’s for sure as otherwise our blogs would just have the word ribbit, ribbit, ribbit. So the hunt for clues to escape was on.

The room is very elaborately decorated full of magical items and so much to explore and discover it really did make me and my fellow team mates feel like we were in a school of wizardry especially the bunsen burner which we discovered later on in the game.  With there being an array of puzzles it was great to see a mix of mechanical and your usual lock & key puzzles. All the puzzles were logical and made sense, so we did quickly progress through this room.  So with a “hickory dickory, dock!” we cracked the room beating the clock.

There was only one part where we got stuck but that was only due to a last minute replacement puzzle which was added to the room as the day before the original puzzle got broken.  So the replacement puzzle hadn’t been fully tested as yet and led to some confusion.  Other than that small glitch this escape room was full of wonder and delight and all the puzzles were very logical and solvable.

Result and verdict

As I and the others have played quite a number of escape rooms within the past we did crack this mid-range difficulty classed room quite quickly, 38 minutes in fact.  Nerveless I totally recommend to any escape room enthusiast as it is so much fun and highly decorated.

So jump on your broomstick or leap onto Shadwell for your lesson in magic at Witchcraft and Wizardry.
