Your guide to all things escape room!

The Escape Roomer was founded in early 2020 with one goal in mind: to document and celebrate the incredible escape room industry here in the UK! Now we play every puzzle game we can get our hands on – tabletop games, board games, video games, immersive theatre and more! We endeavour to cover as many interesting games and experiences as we can!



Founder & Editor-in-Chief

Hey I'm Mairi!

Iโ€™m 25, living in London and I identify as female (she/her pronouns please!). I have blue hair, drink way too much tea, and adore 80s music. I cover escape rooms and immersive theatre in London, play at home games, and video games.

Back in 2018 I played my first escape room and after escaping with 59:58 on the clock decided to myself "Right, I'm going to complete every escape room in the UK. Afterall, how many could there be?". Turns out there are a LOT and I'm still at it but loving every second!

Al & Ash


Hello! We are Al (for Alice, or Big Gay Al..) and Ash (for Aisling - surprsingly not pronounced Ass-ling haha!).

We are a couple of 26 year olds who have spent the last 4 years travelling around the UK to play as many Escape Rooms as possible. On the rare occasion we are not escaping in some form, we spend a lot of time running, eating cake and looking after our little cat - Tilly ๐Ÿ˜บ

Expect reviews from all around the North of the UK (and Kent, as we have family there and for some wonderful reason itโ€™s an escape room hub!).
