Escape Room - Chipshop: The Red Herring

Dates: Various

Nestled at the end of Lion Lane sits The Red Herring – a chip shop designed and run by the brilliant Eustace Whitmore. Darkened every day by his brother’s shadow, Eustace made a secret pact.

The Southampton Ghost Walk

Dates: 18th October & 15th November

It is 1813… and the medieval streets and vaults of Southampton have long been hidden by time. But beyond the tourist trail lies a dark trail of secrets, ghosts and an underclass of murderers and thieves. Southampton is now a regency spa town, the wealthy and fashionable flock to take the waters; while militia and soldiers also swarm the town while war rages in France. Join us as we bring these stories to life in a truly immersive experience as ghosts of the past come to tell their tales from a truly unique perspective.
