About Us

Welcome to The Escape Roomer 👋

The Escape Roomer was founded in late 2019 with one goal in mind: to document and celebrate the incredible escape room industry here in the UK! Originally founded by one person, as the UK escape room industry grew, so did The Escape Roomer grew and now we’re able to cover much more than just physical rooms – anything from puzzles, tabletop games, immersive experiences and beyond. If it has puzzles, we’re there.

Meet the team behind The Escape Roomer.
