Test your detective skills with the new escape room from Hereford Cathedral

Hereford Cathedral's new escape room offers an exciting challenge for all ages! This immersive games lets you test your detective skills as you crack clues and escape.

To celebrate National Lottery Open Week, Hereford Cathedral is excited to announce the launch of its new Escape Room; an immersive clue-cracking and decoding game, hosted in the Old Chapel in the Cloisters. Get a team together and book a session to test your skills this Easter!

It is 1890. You have been accused of embezzling money from the funds of the Vicars Choral. The police have been called and are on their way. You have been shut in the Old Chapel until the police arrive, and you have just one hour to work out who has committed the crime. If you can successfully convince your guard that you are innocent, you will be released before the police arrest you... Can you prove that you are innocent?

Jess Stallwood, Events Officer, is very pleased to launch the Escape Room and welcome visitors in to try out the game; “this is such an exciting thing to introduce to our current events programme! We believe this is a unique offering and one which the team here at Hereford Cathedral can be proud to own.”

The experience lasts one hour and is suitable for groups of up to six people. Each session costs £45.  Booking is available on selected days throughout the year, so please keep an eye on the cathedral website for future dates across the year.

The first sessions are available to book on Thursday 21 & Saturday 23 April. For more information, please visit Hereford Cathedral's website.

The Escape Room was developed as part of the Eastern Cloisters Project which was supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and other donors.  The Eastern Cloisters Project was a major project to renovate the buildings of the College of Vicars Choral, built in 1475, which are home to many of the cathedral staff as well as housing offices. The project was completed in 2021, and has enabled this beautiful and tranquil area to be opened up to the public for events and activities by creating a more accessible space, improving the facilities throughout, and offering new reception rooms for hire.
