For a very limited time this Autumn, bring your friends, family or colleagues to try and solve two brand new pop-up Escape Rooms, especially designed for The Museum of Somerset by Lock & Code of Weston-Super-Mare. Historic Castle House will be transformed to house two games, each reflecting the building’s unique history.

Travel back to Victorian England in SCHOOL DAYS. Can you avoid the cane and retrieve your confiscated catapult from the teacher’s desk before he returns from lunch?

In THE SOMERSET EMERALD, you must solve the clues to uncover the hiding place of a stolen jewel before the thief returns to claim it.

If you have never played an Escape Room before now is your chance. Each room is a 60 minute immersive experience in which your team must work together to find hidden clues and solve puzzles to escape before your time is up. Both games are uniquely themed and professionally designed to provide you with a thrilling and challenging experience. They are suitable for groups of friends; corporate team-building or families with older children.

If you are an experienced Escape Room player, here is your chance to play an exclusive, pop-up game in the unique surroundings of Taunton Castle, home of The Museum of Somerset.

Booking online required – £20 pp (plus booking fee)

Each room is bookable for groups of between 3 and 6 players. Your booking will secure exclusive use of the room for your group. For larger groups you can book both rooms together so that up to twelve people can play at the same time.

Suitable for ages 8+. All groups must include at least one adult (18+)
