to Picton Castle's grounds and gardens

PLUS the Welsh Owl Garden & Zoo.

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!

 Picton Castle's grounds and gardens are now open along with

the very popular Welsh Owl Garden And Zoo.

Maria's lovely cafe is serving delcious food and refreshments

with plenty of tables also available in the courtyard and around the grounds.

Castle tours (warmly recommended) are available for a small extra charge.

Entry to all of these features are included in the price of your game

during daytime opening hours.

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. We also thoroughly ventilate the space between games to ensure that the air is fresh for each new group.

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 in a self-selecting group from no more than six households that 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 take 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. New Welsh government regulations order that face masks should be warn in all public spaces such as shops. However, as other members of the public are not given access to the escape rooms during your visit the use of masks in those areas is optional for our customers.


You will find 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.
