Saturday 26 to Monday 28 October & Thursday 31 October to Sunday 3 November

Join forces with friends, family or colleagues and embark on Escape! Mystery at the Manor, a new immersive journey of puzzle solving and storytelling, all set in Preston Manor.

The mission will lead teams through the elegant rooms of the Edwardian manor house in Brighton, where they must collect crucial evidence and solve escape-room-style puzzles. The story and challenges have all been specially created for this event and will see teams exploring and discovering the Manor, whilst working together to solve the puzzles.

It’s the first time Pier Pressure Escape Rooms have teamed up with Royal Pavilion & Museums who run Preston Manor to bring the unique experience for October half term. It takes place inside the beautiful and historic Preston Manor and will combine immersive theatre with escape room style puzzles and challenges.

The story will follow the residents of Preston Manor who are in mourning. The Lord and Lady of the house have passed away and their will, together with a legendary treasure, have vanished. A top detective has been hired to investigate, and the escape teams assist in the mysterious mission.

Every team will spend 50-70 minutes being guided through the rooms of Preston Manor by a dedicated actor/games host and solve puzzles that will bring the rooms and their former inhabitants to life. Suitable for all ages.

The experience is running for seven days only between 11am-8pm, 26th October – 3rd November, with the exception of the 29th and 30th when the building is closed.
