A real life escape game has arrived in Durham. You and your team will need to solve a series of puzzles in under an hour, can you beat the room? Great for team building, stag/hen do's or just a great way to spend an hour with friends or family!

We found it challenging but very rewarding. Our host was fab. We were made to feel very welcome and the clues began subtle and got less subtle when we got really stuck but never gave the answer away. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back to do other rooms.

What a great experience, this was my first escape room, and my wife's second, and we both really enjoyed it.
We did the Lilly of Lumley room, and I have to say what a fantastic setting, couldn't fault anything about it or the game itself.
Our host was brilliant, really friendly and helpful, and she was great at giving just enough clues to help us along(we did need that help).
Overall I would highly recommend a visit, and I'm sure we will be trying out the other rooms in Durham.

We have done a few escape rooms but this was our favourite so far. The setting is amazing and we really enjoyed the story. The host was really helpful and we certainly needed some help! Brilliant to do between Christmas and New Year.

The Christmas heist was our first escape room and we had so much fun. We needed a little support from Matt but we managed to just make it out in time. Our daughter who is 11 year old had a great time solving the puzzles, it was nice to see our family all working together. We had been on a few Christmas outings this holiday and we all agreed this was the best of the bunch.

Having taken part in many Escape Room experiences, Escape Rooms Durham is one of the absolute best.

We competed the Christmas Heist room. Despite being a seasonal offering and being worried that the puzzles may not be as well designed as more permanent challenges, the room was filled with a variety of puzzles to get our team thinking many of which were quite uniquely thought out and all very different from each other. We left very happy and will definitely try out the other rooms.

This was recommended to me via an escape room enthusiast facebook page as I wanted to make sure we had a great experience for the amount of money we pay for. This definitely lived up to it's high recommendations and more! We went as a team of 4. 2 were my parents who had never done a room before and myself and my partner who have done more than 40 between us. Being a games master myself, I was looking forward to some new puzzles to try. Lily of Lumley was amazing! Plenty of room to move around, chairs for my dad to sit when he needed to and lots of puzzles for us to work out together. Great backstory also that linked in to the History of the castle. Fantastic experience and Matt our games master was excellent. He did his job just as I expected and more. Hints when we needed them to keep us moving and we escaped with 3 minutes left! Anyone hesitating to do this room, don't, go do it. 5 Star room and staff!

As a family of 8 we did this as 2 teams of 4. Clues are great and really varied. It goes over 3 rooms with lots going on. We really enjoyed the whole experience. Great hosts with a fantastic back story, would recommend.

This was the first time we had been to an escape room although we had played a couple of table top games. We didn’t know quite what to expect. An excellent starting point with a Christmas theme got us all thinking. Heidi was a great host and prepared us well. Thanks to everyone we look forward to coming back again really soon!
