Picton Castle and Gardens

The Mansion of Mystery


Do you have a quiet weekend ahead? Then why not spice things up with a trip to the Mansion of Mystery Escape Room at Picton Castle? The theme of the escape room is the ‘Time Machine’.

The story is set in 1895. Cornelius Cogworthy, the greatest inventor of the Victorian age, has invented a marvellous Time Machine. Prussian spies are pursuing him to steal the secrets of this, his greatest invention. In order to thwart them he has gone somewhere back in time to hide the plans. Queen Victoria is seeking your help to locate the missing blueprints which are lost somewhere in the past. So you need to solve the puzzles and make your escape…back to the future. The Time Machine at the Mansion of Mystery is a fast-moving adventure in history, space and time for two to six players of all ages.

We have a Room of Curiosities stuffed full of oddities where you can relax before or after your adventure. You can even book the room for a small party such as a birthday party, corporate event, or even a seance!
