Golden Key Award

“Creating a good game is hard enough, but doing so in a building that you can’t modify must be almost impossible. Definitely not impossible, though, because Escape in the Towers absolutely nailed it with their experience. It took something special to do the medieval towers justice, but they absolutely managed it.”

5 Star Trip Advisor Rating

“Insanely good! The best escape room I’ve done yet by far - so atmospheric being in a real cell! The design of the room/puzzles was great and the games master was superb. Escaped on the hour mark exactly - phew! Highly recommend”
“Had a marvellous time, exciting, engaging and great fun. Set in real historic prison cells, very atmospheric and attention to detail excellent. Ben was welcoming and took the time to explain how it would all work to put minds at rest so that the game could be enjoyed fully. A really good way to spend an hour, or in our case 44 action packed minutes.”
“We have done lots of escape rooms in the last couple of years, and this is really one of the best. The location couldn’t be more perfect and the puzzles and story were engrossing. I can’t recommend this place enough. Plus a free visit to the little museum after was the icing on the cake.”
