Can you help Terry to make Titterton’s toffees a Royal favourite?Titterton’s Toffees first opened their doors on Chapel street in 1933. They were soon to be regarded as one of the highest quality toffee makers in the country, eventually being awarded with a Royal warrant. They were a small family business and made almost everything in the back room of their shop. Things were going well for Titterton’s, they had great plans for the future with demand for their toffees increasing, and then the war arrived. Terry Titterton was just 8 years old at the time when he and his mother were left to run the shop alone after his father was called up to fight.  As the war raged on and rationing came in to effect, the shop was sadly forced to close. Almost 20 years later Terry still reminisced about the days he spent watching his dear now departed parents making the toffee.  On Wednesday 5 February 1953 the Food Minister announced in Parliament and to the Commons that ration and price control on chocolate and sweets had officially come to an end across the United Kingdom.Over the course of the next few months a flurry of sweet shops, small and large scale confectionery manufacturers sprung up across the country. Passing the old shop one day Terry noticed a for sale sign in the window, he peered through the cracked windowpane to view the dusty interior and to his astonishment the shop looked just as it did the last time he saw it!Terry bought the shop and started to clean the place up.  News travelled to the palace that the Queen’s favourite toffee maker was reopening and she sent an order directly to Terry to produce some of her favourite toffees in time for her Coronation.  All he needed now was to fix the old toffee machine and work out how to use it.Can you detectives help Terry get his parents once glorious toffee business back up and running?I think if we could start with making 6 boxes of toffees to send to the Royal household in time for the Queen’s Coronation, we might be able to get the Royal warrant reinstated, which would go a long way to once again making Titterton’s toffees a household name.

As always, escape quest have pulled off another excellent escape room. It’s no wonder this company is so highly rated. Lots to keep you busy and the puzzles are very logical and solid. We played as a 2 and managed to do it all in the nick of time. Solid, must-play room!

As expected, another brilliant game from Escape Quest. Even after playing the 4 previous games here, the magic of Chapelgate Mysteries is never lost on us. The care and dedication put into these rooms is astonshing.

A visit to Escape Quest is a scrumptious sweet treat in itself but Titterton's Toffee is a sumptuous, delicious delight and we just wanted more! We knew it would be a quality offering and we expected handmade puzzles with padlocks-a-plenty but the reality of having an hour in escape room heaven absolutely lived up to all of our expectations.
Elaine and Mike design puzzles that just make sense. Sometimes straightforward, sometimes multi-layered but always thought through with care and a nod to the history of Chapelgate.The decor is in-keeping with the era and this new Chapelgate challenge allows time travellers into new places and to see the changes that have taken place over time. As always, the flow of the gameplay is superb and success is measured on the basis of 'how many' rather than 'escape or not', which makes it fun and accessible for all levels of escapers.It is yet another winner for Escape Quest and if there were royal warrants available for escape rooms (as well as toffee-makers) then this would surely get the royal seal of approval.
