Reclaim your senses and re-evaluate your taste perception; it’s time to dine in the pitch darkness!
We just love this idea. For once you can be set free from social conventions and visual preconceptions. You will be guided by a blind or partially sighted person, getting a first-hand experience of their reality.
Let smell, taste, and touch take over for a few hours as you enjoy organic food and fruity wine.
Psst! Rumour has it that there will be a Dans le Noir escape game opening in 2020.

16. Seek out the Underground Labyrinths (FREE!)
In search of cool things to do in London that don’t cost the earth? Here is a fun freebie for you.
Every one of London’s 270 tube stations has a piece of artwork displayed by Mark Wallinger, entitled Labyrinth.
His idea was commissioned by Art on the Underground to celebrate the Underground’s 150th anniversary.
So, what’s it all about?
It’s purely a bit of fun to keep the fun in moving around this big city. In each underground station, you will find one of Mark’s labyrinths to find. The question is, how many can you find and can you solve them?
