What are Escape Rooms?

Escape rooms are  a timed experience with a series of puzzles to escape the room.  The puzzles will test your ability to work as a team, think logically and with common sense.

We’re Know Escape and we know escape!  Our directors have played hundreds of Escape Games around the world, and advised other companies and organisations on how to design, build and run the most exciting games.  We wouldn’t let you play anything we wouldn’t want to play ourselves, and all of our sets, puzzles and game stories are our own.

Why Choose Us?

  • Amazing games (see any review site).
  • Family run and operated.
  • Dedicated Know Escape team member watching your game only (and not multiple games!).
  • We never put you with strangers, the room is yours!
  • Our games are written by our team, and are not imported; you’ll only play a Know Escape game at a Know Escape venue.
  • We love Escape Rooms! Our founders have played hundreds all over the world and wouldn’t put you in a game they wouldn’t put their own families in!
  • People travel from all over the world to play our games.
  • We dress and decorate the game with a permanent theme! Some companies don’t do this, watch out for it!
  • No blockbuster film franchise rip offs here! We write our own unique ideas, and never rip anyone else off!

Who can play ?

Almost anyone can play.  Please check in advance if you have any special access requirements to make sure that the room is suitable for your party’s needs.  We’re really lovely and we’ll do everything we can to accommodate you.

Do I need to know anything else?

Weekends can be quite busy so it is worth booking well in advance.  Other than that there isn’t much else!  Escape rooms are a lot of fun so be sure to check out our games below and if you need any help we are on hand via phone, email or live chat.
