Take two of the most quintessentially English things — Sherlock Holmes the private detective created by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the centuries old tradition of afternoon tea — put them together and you've got some seriously mysterious cucumber sandwiches.

Fans of Sherlock Holmes can now indulge in their favourite detective stories while scoffing cake and sandwiches and guzzling tea at The Mind Palace, Sherlock: The Official Live Game’s popular stand alone bar — designed specifically for the curious.

The Mind Palace is a speakeasy adjoined to the Sherlock escape room experience and offers a unique drinking experience with cocktails codenamed and mysteries to solve while you sip.
