If you took an escape game, mixed it with some immersive theatre and a treasure hunt and then turbocharged it, you'd start to get something a bit like A Door in a Wall's events. I love playing escape rooms, but very little gets me as excited as playing a Door in a Wall event. Generally they run two main games a year - one in late Spring (May/early June) and one in early Autumn (September/early October), though they've recently started running a monthly event on top of that. They also have a set of private events they can run ranging in scale and cost, so if you're planning a big birthday party or want your company to put on a more interesting corporate event, then I'd recommend checking them out. No, I'm not on commission!

A Door in a Wall (London): Memento Mori

A fun medium-length mystery from A Door in a Wall. Blink and you’ll miss it though – this was a one weekend only event that took place at the end of August.

A Door in a Wall (London): Dead Man's Hand

Dead Man’s Hand wasn’t my favourite of the A Door in a Wall games but it’s still a very enjoyable experience and I suspect that we went a long just a little too early to fully appreciate it.

A Door in a Wall (London): Dead Drop

Back to their best: Dead Drop is A Door in a Wall’s usual combination of great performance, fun puzzles, a convoluted mystery and a smattering of outrageous puns. I highly recommend.

A Door in a Wall (London): Murder Most Fowl

A great taster event for A Door in a Wall. If you’re looking to organise a fun birthday party or corporate event with plenty of time for mingling then it’s a great choice. Don’t go in expecting their usual full scale events and you’ll likely come away very happy with the experience.

A Door in a Wall (London): Horses for Corpses

Another evening of fun from a Door in a Wall. While still an amazing experience, the new format resulted in to a poorer experience on the immersive theatre side which wasn’t quite made up for with the impressive setting and reduced amount of queuing.

A Door in a Wall: Played to Death

Another installment from the masters of the immersive theatre treasure hunt. A brilliant murder mystery puzzle to solve, some fun puzzles along the trails and great immersive theatre.

A Door in a Wall: A Veiled Threat

A once a month extravaganza in Islington. Easier puzzles but more interaction, this is another great performance from the masters of immersive, puzzly theatre.

A Door in a Wall: Appetite for Murder

Before the event Ever since The Life and Death of Paul Marrane, I’d been waiting for A Door in a Wall‘s next outing, so as soon as they announced Appetite for Murder, I emailed out to the usual suspects and started putting together a team. In fact, a team of teams – people had enjoyed last time

A Door in a Wall: The Life and Death of Paul Marrane

Before the event Back in May, I decided to branch out from the usual escape room events that I’d been attending and visit A Door in a Wall‘s event The Life and Death of Paul Marrane. I’d never heard of the company before, but what was clear to me was that they had a loyal following,
