The plot

The year is 673 AD, Etheldreda has fled from the dishonourable advances of her second husband, the young King of Northumbria Egfrith. She is hiding in peace, in Ely. King Egrith is keen to find her. A sinful monk, within her clergy, has plans to betray her and let Egrith know where she is by letter. As her loyal protectors, your challenge is to find the letter and escape before it gets to the King – you can save Ethedreda and she will remain safe and protected for the rest of her life.

Suggested Number in Group – 6 – All sessions are booked for exclusive use of the group. The price is for a session, not per person.

About our Escape Room

Whilst there are now several Escape Rooms about, we believe Oliver Cromwell’s House offers something that no other Escape Room experience can – the location and the atmosphere. Launched in September 2016 the games have been designed around the heritage of the building and the connection with Oliver Cromwell although being a history geek will not help you one bit! After a short briefing you will enter the Escape Room and find yourself in Cromwell’s former Tithe Office, an original 17th century, oak panelled room, where Oliver would have counted the local taxation payments. No other location can offer this unique surrounding.

Gather your friends, family or work colleagues together and book your session today. The activity also lends itself to families, the corporate market, work parties or even young people’s parties (aged 13 to 16).  Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
