Our Escape Room in Bermondsey, near London Bridge

Please note: Our escape rooms in Hackney are now retired. Our new location from 30th April will be Gaff Bermondsey – 100 Drummond Rd, London SE16 4DG.  We’ll be open for games every Saturday.  Office hours are 10 – 6 every day of the week.

We do like to do things differently at Modern Fables so at our new Bermondsey location near London Bridge we decided to create escape room-style events! Our new game the Guild is a blend of traditional escape room puzzles with elements taken from pub quizzes and immersive theatre. A perfect event for team building events and birthday parties as well as large hen parties and stag parties where it’s not just all about the booze.

Modern Fables escape rooms will still be known for immersing you in an exciting narrative using sound, light and actors. We’ll also still be known for interesting, unique puzzles you wont see elsewhere!

Our new venue in Bermondsey near London Bridge can also offer food and drink for you to enjoy while you play. The experience will be 90 minutes long and will cost £26.50 per person.

What is our new Escape Room event in Bermondsey, near London Bridge...?

Our new game is called The Guild, and is a rare opportunity to join a secret society that a certain strange character is resurrecting.

Years ago, a secret society called The Guild came to a mysterious end when their HQ burned down. Reports say the flames burned white hot. Which is odd, as the surrounding buildings were untouched…

You will arrive at our Bermondsey location near London Bridge venue with your group of 3 – 6 people. Your group will have their own table for the game. Other groups will also have their own tables, a bit like a pub quiz! It’s up to you how much you socialise with other groups but you may need to work together every now and then!

Our character will then introduce you to The Guild and be there to guide you throughout. You will solve escape room style puzzles in your group as the story progresses, go through various twists and turns, and come to a final conclusion which will leave you with an insight into how the world really works…

We will be going live in Bermondsey, near London Bridge on Saturday 30th April with four 90 minute sessions every Saturday from 12pm and finishing at 9pm. You’ll also be welcome to stay in a part of the venue for more drinks if you wish!


Enjoy the menu below, before, during and after your escape room experience.

We've tried it all and it's lucious!

Top Quality Escape Rooms

Welcome to our escape room experience in Bermondsey, London. We’re located at the trendy Biscuit Factory just 5 mins walk from Bermondsey Tube, one stop from London Bridge. We are known to be one of the best escape room destinations in London and we are also among the most reasonably priced at £26.50 per person.

We are serious about originality so we make all our games ourselves. To stay original we add unique elements to every game that you won’t nd elsewhere – including custom scents to set the scene! We also pride ourselves on our independence, not being part of an international chain. We know that every visit to our escape game is special so we do our best to make sure you feel that from the time you enter our experience to the time you leave.

We also prize narrative in our escape room experiences as we believe this immersive theatrical experience adds so much to the excitement. Our games are all part of the same story world to give you a fullling and fun time.

Our local station is Bermondsey on the Jubilee Line. If you don’t want to take public transport to our escape game, we have a paid carpark.

Difficulty level of our escape rooms

Our set-up in Bermondsey, near London Bridge is a bit different to other escape rooms. Our Games Master will look after your game and work hard to react to your team during play. This will make sure your experience is tricky enough to be challenging without being frustrating! So, even if your team are complete novices, have no fear!


With our roots in London, we are a proudly independent company. With the help of talented artists, we design and create our games in-house. The result is originality rarely seen in escape rooms, even in London.

We set ourselves apart from other escape rooms by creating vivid stories that will excite you right from the very beginning. You’ll meet odd characters who set the scene, immersing you in a story that feels like an adventure – not just a set of puzzles. By the way, our characters will never make you feel uncomfortable or force you to sing and dance! Unless you want to of course…

Please note that after the covid pandemic we retired our escape rooms: The Escapist, Hypersomnia and The Oracles.

After Your Game at Our Escape Rooms

Our escape room experience is located at The Biscuit Factory just 5 mins walk from Bermondsey tube on the Jubilee line.

Bermondsey tube is just one stop from London Bridge from the west and Canada Water to the east.

We’re located on the famous Bermondsey Beer Mile, which runs from London Bridge to South Bermondsey. This is a stretch of craft beer breweries that open their doors every Saturday. Alternatively, you can stop off at a traditional London Bridge pub, just one tube stop away.

If the weather is nice, you can also stop off at nearby Southwark Park, just a few minutes walk away. Alternatively, nd the hidden gem that is Bermondsey Beach on the Thames, with views of The City and Tower Bridge.

So, there you have it! One of the most exciting locations in London with an atmosphere to match, you’ll be spoilt for choice before or after your time at our escape rooms in London Bridge.

Our Digital Escape Games

We have also created a number of digital games for you! When Covid19 closed our escape rooms we made ‘Medogan‘. Set in the town of ‘Medogan’, you can expect the usual Modern Fables quality and atmosphere. Inspired by choose-your-own-adventure books, ‘Medogan‘ can be played on your own or as a team.

The next digital game we created is called ‘Nexusurf‘. This game feels more like an online escape room. ‘Nexusurf‘ is an adventure set in an alternate reality where you can travel through time using your web browser to take down an evil corporation.

Coming soon, we have an app-based game played on the streets of London and an online murder mystery. Of course, these are all set in the same story world! On top of this we are also working on games for other people. Watch this space!
