What's On Newcastle

Guide to Newcastle Escape Rooms

A Guide to Newcastle’s Escape Rooms

The trend for escape rooms in Newcastle is huge at the moment. Even over the past couple of years the types of escape rooms available has changed. We’ve visited several across the UK and the quality varies. Starting from working out maths to unlock a padlock, to connecting electrical sockets in a certain order. And as more rooms get added in Newcastle the competition and quality seem to be increasing.
