“the study”(5 reviews)
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!

A great venue and day out for a team building day. The staff are friendly and professional. The 2 rooms are great. Can`t wait for the new venue and game. Worth every penny and certainly gets the brain working.

We tackled Mr Borrowdale’s study as a family ages 35-71 and had a great time. Fortunately we made it out in good time but we had a couple of skilled crossword solvers in the team which really helped! Our host Helena was really friendly and...More

Had a great time at the escape room. The girl who took us through the experience was excellent (sorry I've forgotten her name. )We didn't crack it but still lots of fun. Well worth a visit. Thank you.
