Do you have the brainpower to join Sherlock Holmes' network and save London from master criminal Moriarty?

The West 12 Centre is hosting Sherlock: The Game Is Now, a 100 minute immersive escape game for teams of four to six people created by the TV series' creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, in collaboration with Time Run, renowned escape room pioneers.

Team members get the chance to play the detective in a brand new Sherlock case featuring original content from the stars of the show including Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Andrew Scott.

Players meet at Doyle’s Opticians – a clever front for the Network. Here the adventure begins and their skills of observation are tested as part of the Official Sherlock Live Experience.

Entering into the world of Sherlock with immersive sets and environments from the show, their challenge is to work together to solve mysteries and puzzles before time runs out.
