About Us

'Escape Rooms Durham' is a small, independent company owned & operated by Grim Up North LTD.

We are not part of a large franchise meaning you will not find our games anywhere else!

Our games are completely original, and you wont find our puzzles anywhere else. We also feature the UK's only Escape game inside a real 600 year old castle!

All our staff come from either a theatrical or a gaming background, so you are sure to not only have a challenging game, but an immersive and thrilling experience.


Our staff have worked in immersive theatre, west end musicals, regional critically acclaimed plays & concerts as well as creating and operating live action role play gaming.

We also create bespoke team building & theatrical events for corporations looking for something a little different.

Our game operators have been commended for being the "cherry on top" of our customers experience! Go take a look at our Trip Advisor reviews to see for yourself!

We often hold special events and we constantly update and improve our Escape Games.
