Who Visits Escape Edinburgh

So, you’re interested in the escape rooms, but you’d like to know what they’re all about and why you should make your way down there? We can certainly help with that, and let you know the type of people we see every day coming down here to Edinburgh.

Escape Rooms Are Becoming Increasingly Popular

The escape rooms are popular with different groups of people who each get something different out of it. It’s such a novel and unique way of having a great time! It’s an hour that goes by really fast, and rather than just visiting for the one day, people come back again and again.

We See a Lot of Students

Escape rooms are very popular with students. They love to come down to Escape Edinburgh and they bring their friends down to work their way through the clues we leave hidden around the room. It’s great way for students to get to know each other too. If they’re at university for the first time, they may not know anyone. Escape rooms give new students a great opportunity to bond with their new friends and break the ice. At escape rooms Edinburgh we know how much students love our rooms which is why we offer an exclusive 20% discount to students when they quote "stu20" at checkout. One student card must be presented.

Escape Rooms Are Great For Corporate Teams Too

Too often teams will be left to their own devices, especially new members and those who are a little shy. By sending them out on a team building exercise, team leaders get to not only help them to break the ice with their new colleagues and help the shy ones come out of their shell, they also get to have a sneaky look at their skills. Perhaps they excel at some things more than others, where are their strengths, their weaknesses? Yes, escape rooms can be places to unwind and give the boss ample opportunity to capture a picture of strengths and weaknesses – it’s win-win all round.

Celebrate a Birthday, Hen or Stag Night

For those on a trip to celebrate a friend’s coming nuptials, we sometimes see ourselves hosting a hen or stag night party. Sometimes people come to simply celebrate a birthday, it’s a great way of winding down, celebrating a special event with those whose company you value the most.

Escape Edinburgh – For The Best in Celebrating Work or Play

If you think this is something you’d like to indulge in, perhaps you have a special event to celebrate, or perhaps you just want to organise a team building event for the day. Whatever it is, we’d love to be a part of it, because no matter who you are, or what your day is about, we know you’re going to love our escape games. So, give us call and book your escape room today!

Things To Do In Edinburgh: Free Activities

Edinburgh is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities, not just in Europe, but the world. If you’re coming here either on business or vacation, then you’ll be looking for things to do to keep you occupied. If you’re on a tight budget, perhaps you’ve got the kids with you, you’ll be looking to save money, therefore we’ve come up with some free activities, things to do in Edinburgh that won’t cost the earth.

City Art Centre

If you’re into art, culture and music, then why not head down to the City Art Centre, where you’ll find exhibitions on anything from photography, art and design and architecture, and both international and local artists work on display. Indulge your senses and spend some quality time at the City Art Centre and forget the outside world for now.

The National Museum of Scotland

The museum is a perfect rendezvous if you love history and archaeology, and there’ll be plenty to keep you occupied here. There are nearly a thousand pieces here from different times in history and all of which should keep children happy for a few hours! If you’re in need of a snack and some coffee, then head for the Balcony Café where you can have a light lunch or visit the Tower Restaurant for something for exciting.

Arthur’s Seat

If you fancy getting outside, then perhaps you should head for Arthur’s Seat where you’ll get some spectacular views. Some even believe it is here that Camelot was located, who knows? All we know is that Arthur’s Seat takes up the views of St Anthony’s Chapel and there’s a steep climb to the top where you can see incredible views of the city. It’s definitely worth the climb, and don’t worry about accidents because the routes are all marked with signs telling you where you shouldn’t walk, and that way you and the family can have a safe, peaceful and fun day.

Dovecot Gallery and Tapestry Studio


How about a visit to the Dovecot Gallery and Tapestry Studio where you can see some breath-taking contemporary art and fine tapestry? There are some great workshops if you fancy a go and organised tours. St Cuthbert’s Parish Church is well worth a visit where you can here the majestic ten bells on a Sunday, and inside you can see exquisite wall paintings and stained-glass windows.

Escape Edinburgh

After all that excitement you might fancy a visit to Escape Edinburgh. No, a visit here isn’t free, however after all your day’s free entertainment you should have saved some pennies for a final hour of fun and games at our Escape Games in Edinburgh. Here you’ll get to be locked up in a room with a chosen group of friends as part of your team, and then you’ll have to solve a series of cryptic clues and puzzles, but you’ll have to find them first.
