Escape! Mystery at the Manor
24th October – 1st November 2020
After SELLING OUT in October 2019 and February 2020, Mystery at the Manor is BACK for the October half term week 2020.
Join forces with your friends, family or colleagues and embark on an immersive journey of puzzle solving and storytelling, all set in a fascinating Edwardian Manor House!
The mission will lead your team through the elegant rooms of Preston Manor, where you must collect crucial evidence and solve escape-room-style puzzles. The story and challenges have all been custom created for this event and will see you and your team exploring and discovering the Manor, whilst working together to solve the puzzles.
“…The residents of Preston Manor 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 you and your team are here to assist in this mysterious mission. Can your team solve the case and find the missing treasure?…”
Pier Pressure Escape Rooms have teamed up with the team from Preston Manor to bring you this unique experience. It takes place inside the beautiful and historic manor house and combines immersive theatre with escape room style puzzles and challenges.
Your team will spend 60-80 minutes being guided through the rooms of the manor house by a dedicated actor/games host and solve puzzles that will bring the rooms and their former inhabitants to life.
This experience is available to book for private or corporate events for 25-45 people, or will be open to the public for the next half term holidays – 15th-23rd February 2020

Between 4 and 8 people.
Will we put in with other people?
No, the booking is completely private and you won’t be joined by anyone you don’t know.
Can we bring children?

Will there be a games host?
Yes, you will have a dedicated actor who is with you at all times and guides you through the Manor.
How long will the whole experience last?
The whole experience will last 75 minutes. As with our permanent games, you will receive a short briefing at the beginning, then the actual game experience will be 50-60 minutes.
Is the experience wheelchair friendly?
Sadly not, there are stairs between some of the rooms that can’t be avoided. See below for full accessibility policy.
Is it suitable for anyone pregnant or less able to stand or move?
Your team will move from room to room so there will be a fair bit of walking, climbing stairs and standing. If you let us know in advance, we can provide chairs in some of the rooms for a rest.
Can we see the rest of the Manor at the end of the experience on our own?
The Manor is closed in October and only the rooms we are using are being opened up for this experience. To visit the remaining rooms of the Manor, please visit from April to September.
Is the experience scary?
It is not a scary attraction. However, some of the bedrooms are rumoured to be haunted therefore we can’t guarantee there won’t be any ghostly appearances.
Is there parking?
Yes, the Manor has plenty of free parking spaces.
Also available to be run as a private or corporate event for 24-48 people including a drinks reception and canapes – contact us for more info!
