WHAT ARE  PEOPLE  SAYING ABOUT  THE ESCAPE  KEY?

"The best escape room I've ever done. Easily the best in the North East." 

Matty, Facebook Message Jan 2023

Welcome to The Escape Key Newcastle

We offer six handcrafted escape experiences in our central Newcastle location - two outdoor escape games and four indoor escape rooms.

Our premium action-packed escape rooms have innovative puzzles that will thrill everyone, from first time challengers to veteran escapees! You won't find a series of repetitive 'find the combination and open the box' style puzzles.
What sets us apart from other escape rooms are our close ties to Newcastle and the North East's rich heritage. We're situated right next to St Andrew's Church in Gallowgate, next to a real witch burial ground and a medieval plague pit!
