The Mansion of Mystery escape rooms are officially "Good To Go" and welcoming new players to our home at Picton Castle.

We were one of the first tourism businesses in Pembrokeshire to be awarded this official UK tourism seal of approval for our plans to operate safely during the pandemic.

As social distancing is impossible within the escape room, until the rules change we are open only for groups of family members or close friends who have been self-isolating. We are also taking a number of steps to ensure your safety during the visit - see the note at the bottom of this page *.​  ​We are delighted that so many of our visitors have told us how safe they feel and appreciate the care we are taking to look after them.

If you have any questions or concerns about your visit do please call us on 01437 751310 or email us via this site.

As always, your escape room booking is tremendous value for money as it also includes free entry to Picton Castle's grounds and gardens plus the Welsh Owl Garden ​worth £9 to adults and £6 for children.

We look forward to seeing you here at Picton Castle in the very near future.

 The Time Machine 

The year is 1895.

Cornelius Cogworthy has invented a most marvellous machine for travelling through time.  Now dastardly foreign spies are after his secrets and, to save them,

he has hidden the plans somewhere in the past.

Your team's task is to locate the missing blueprints

and make your escape. . . back to the future!

Our Time Machine is a fast-moving adventure

in history, time and space for two to six players.

 Opening this Summer

Espionage - Final Selection 

The instructors at the Ministry of War's Espionage Academy teach spy craft.  Today you will be taking your final exam in all the skills a secret agent needs.

However, your tutor may have gone a little

too far in testing your talents!

You have just sixty minutes to pass the examination

and help save the British Empire from her enemies.

Fail and a rather nastier fate lies in store!

You have just sixty minutes to

complete the exam and survive!

Your Escape Room ticket includes free admission to Picton Castle's

grounds and gardens as well as our wonderful Welsh Owl Garden.

Unfortunately the maze and the adventure playground are currently closed but the refurbished boardwalk has just re-opened.

Maria's Restaurant is currently offering a takeaway service during regular opening hours. There are plenty of tables and chairs around the central courtyard area and loads

of picnic spots around the gardens and grounds.

The Mansion of Mystery is Pembrokeshire's most memorable escape room experience.

The Mansion of Mystery wants to make your escape room experience as perfect as possible so naturally we take health and safety very seriously – even though we are stepping back through time into the nineteenth century – and will have thoroughly cleaned and sanitised the game areas before your visit.

Please do not play our escape room game if you or anyone in your group has experienced the symptoms of Covid 19 within the past seven days or have been in contact with anyone who has coronavirus within the past fourteen days. There is no penalty for a cancellation under these circumstances - the safety of our visitors and staff are of paramount importance.


We understand that because you are a group that has been self-isolating it is safe for you to interact together but please ensure that you keep at least six feet away from our Gamesmasters at all times.


We are taking thorough steps to sanitise all areas on the building for your protection but we would ask you to use the hand gel provided before and after you play. Disposable gloves are also provided for you to wear if you wish. Please bring your own facemasks.


There are also extra bottle of sanitiser inside the escape room for your use.  If you need to cough or sneeze please use a tissue and dispose of it safely in the bins provided and again use the gel each time.


Our toilet is available at all times – please use a paper towel or tissue to open and close the door and for touching any hard surfaces inside.  And of course, make sure you wash your hands thoroughly.
