You and your team will be locked in the Plague room (overlooking the plague pit of St. Andrew's graveyard) with one hour to solve the puzzles and escape before the doctor returns. This event is suitable for groups of up to six people aged 14 or above.

Do you try to escape The Plague Doctor in our Plague room overlooking the plague pit in St. Andrew's church.
