About

Our very first, very magical Escape Room is now open!

Can you help Headmistress Redwind? She’s in a bit of a fix - she was preparing to send the last classroom in the castle into magical storage for the school holidays when one of her spells backfired and now she is trapped in one of the old paintings. Your magical mission, should you choose to accept, is to follow the clues and find out how to release her from the spell.

Expect potions, cryptic notes and some unexpected puzzles. Professor Redwind is stuck in the potions room at the very top of the castle, full of weird and wonderful magical objects, but don’t let that distract you from the task at hand.

Recommended for ages 10+ but fun and challenging for adults too. Younger children welcome if attending in a family group.

Prices for a 60 minute game:

2 players - £49 (£24.50 per player)
3 players - £69 (£23 per player)
4 players - £84 (£21 per player)
5 players - £98 (£19.60 per player)
6 players - £108 (£18 per player)

Please note: the Escape Room is located on the top floor of the castle, which is quite a climb, some 80+ winding stairs up. As such, we regret that it is unsuitable for wheelchair users or pram access as we do not have a lift. Suitable (sturdy/comfy) footwear is essential. Whilst the room is heated, it can be rather chilly in the castle so please wear warm clothing.

Facilities

Accessibility

  • Disabled access - Please let the person on the gate know as they will allow you to park close to the castle. Realistically Norman castles were built to keep people out! but the ground floor tapestry room is ramp accessible. We very much hope you can enjoy the essence of the castle from this room.
