High up above a Londis on Oxford street, space was always going to be a premium for these guys. In fact, finding the venue could be called the first puzzle here. They double down on the macabre at No Escape, and the result is a fun room with a solid blend of puzzles.

My team comprised of some escape room newbies and we had that perfect mix afterwards of kicking ourselves for not getting some of the clues. But also smiles and satisfaction that we got out and worked together so well. 

The folks running the show have clearly given a lot of thought to the dental theme, and they’ve combined some classic puzzles in a satisfying manner that keeps them fresh. 

There was one notable red herring right there in our faces, that didn’t add anything to the game. But, as is so often the case, it takes away.
