SECRETS lie hidden within the depths and recesses of Kelham’s great monastic halls; whisperings between resident monks of dark deeds cut short by an Abbot’s glare.

Something has certainly gone terribly wrong at Kelham Hall but will you answer Father Frederick’s call for help as one of his own has VANISHED!

The Rig escape rooms Newark on Trent

In 1943 forty-two American Oil Miners secretively descended on Kelham Hall in a last ditch effort to prop up the British War effort and supply much needed fuel to our troops in battle.

75 years later their drilling sites have been unearthed and all is not well. We have an imminent disaster upon us, the clock is ticking and we need you to save Kelham Hall and everyone in it!

"We've done two of the escape rooms - The Rig and Sacred. Really good fun for a family with teenagers. Each room was intricately designed and cleverly thought through. What's also interesting is the link to local history in both rooms. Great outing for everyone!" (tripadvisor review)

"We went to try sacred after loving the rig last year. The decor and feel of the room is so immersive and the puzzles are so clever. Well done letsXcape, when can we have room three?!" (tripadvisor review)

"We visited the Sacred escape room as part of a team building afternoon. The lead up to the escape room experience was very thorough and set the scene well. The room itself was well laid out and the puzzles were intriguing and well paced. All in all an excellent experience!" (tripadvisor review)




An ominous ticking sound is coming from a recently delivered suspicious package here at letsXcape and we need your help to deal with the situation!

With our regular bomb defusal expert on leave, we are looking for willing volunteers to help us avert disaster quickly.

Assemble your team of 3-6 players and book a slot to test yourselves against our 'mission impossible' Hurry, time is running out!

This is a table-top escape game-style experience lasting upto 60 minutes in length. 

TH3 D3L1V3RY is located at our board game café site in the centre on Newark on Trent (NG24 1BF)

Here at letsXcape we are developing immersive escape room experiences set within the fantastic stately home of Kelham Hall.

Our experiences bring to life elements of historical events that were pivotal during their time to ensure we don’t forget what took place here at Kelham Hall, Newark on Trent, Nottinghamshire.

Escape rooms, also known as "puzzle rooms" or "escape games", are a physical adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles, challenges or riddles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives at hand.

Our immersive escape experiences take you back to the period we focus on, allowing groups of family, friends, co workers and business teams to enjoy a series of challenges together for up to 60 minutes.

Please note - neither of our current escape rooms are 'scary' experiences!

what are escape rooms


Our experiences are designed for between 2 and 6 players at a time and last up to 60 minutes.

We have a flat pricing policy of £22.50 per adult and £18.00 per child (under 18yrs old) on any day of the week, with a minimum of 2 people required to play an experience and one must be an adult.

We recommend participating children are 12 years or older with those under 18 must be accompanied by at least one adult. For younger children please contact us to query.

Based on the ground floor at Kelham we have rooms that are wheel chair accessible but please check prior to booking for door width sizes to be 100% certain.

We would welcome contact from business groups and can negotiate conference/training facility packages that include our immersive games and escape rooms, whether that’s for team building, reward and recognition or internal development opportunities.



Here at letsxcape we are pushing the boundaries of support for small, medium and corporate businesses.

Our rooms are designed to encourage team work, communication, methodological thinking and place groups under pressure from the off.

We are confident your staff will gain new experiences and achievements taking part in our immersive escape rooms and environments.

We are also looking to develop hosted sessions for staff development, be that internal promotion, assessment centres or leading the way in recruitment options. What better way for your next leaders to physically demonstrate the skills they have than to watch them deliver them in front of your very eyes through our CCTV systems rather than them telling you during a competency-based interview?

We are also looking to develop bespoke environments in partnership with employers so please get in contact if this is something that interests you.
