In a forgotten warehouse in South Bermondsey, London, Lavinia Carter runs her bar ‘The Escapist’, once a lively part of the local arts scene. Rumours and strange occurrences have led to Lavinia and her bar to being shunned. The increasingly erratic Lavinia now seems to be missing. What the…?
Lavinia has always had a keen sense of adventure, sometimes crossing the globe at a moment’s notice. Recently her trips have seemed more frequent and her behaviour more secretive – possibly since she started uncovering strange truths about her late grandfather.
Lavinia’s loyal and long-suffering friend Alfie needs your help to get the bar back to its former glory while she’s away on her latest clandestine mission. What’s she up to? Why the obsession with her grandfather? Will she ever return? What will pique your curiosity? Surely Alfie won’t notice if you have a quick snoop while he’s not looking…
You have an hour to play this escape game where every puzzle tells a piece of the story. Lead your team to find clues that should uncover Lavinia’s secrets. The Escapist is for teams of between 2 - 6 people and is based in South Bermondsey, just one nifty stop from London Bridge station in South London.
Don’t be afraid to play The Escapist if you are particularly timid – Alfie will look after you and make sure you come to no harm. If this is your first escape room (and we’re sure it won’t be your last!), you can always ask for more help to see you through.
Modern Fables is South London’s truly immersive escape room experience where every puzzle tells the story.
We set ourselves apart from other escape rooms by creating site-specific, story-led games focussed on immersing players in unique sensory stories. We use urban legends as our source material, so it’s not known how much of the stories are actually true…that’s up to you to decide.
