Great for Teams and Groups

A New Way to Have Fun in Malvern, Worcestershire and surrounding areas!


Well, why not try an Escape Room!

You are locked in a room, you have one hour to solve the puzzles, crack the codes and escape the room!

This is a MOBILE room – ie we come to you*. You will need a space for a 12′ x 12′ (3.65m x 3.65m) for a gazebo outside (weather depending) or space for 3 medium sized pieces of furniture/props inside (- to give you an idea we can fit one entire escape room in a car).

We can set it up in your house, hotel, work place, village hall or wherever. We have a duplicate room so can cater for up to 16 people at anyone time – if you have the space! If not, we can run 2 rooms, one after the other with a half hour gap to reset the room.
* location restrictions apply – approx 15 mile radius of Great Malvern, Worcester. We can cater for further out locations but a surcharge may apply.

Call 07543 161629 or email with your location, preferred date and number of players and we’ll try and accommodate you.


It's great for Families

Family groups of up to 8 persons can all join in the fun in one mobile unit (or 16 people using both units). We suggest under 12’s are accompanied by an adult as some of the puzzles and locks can be a little tricky … 🙂 Help is always on hand and it’s a great way to spend some fun family time together.

It's beneficial fun

  Play, we know is crucial for all children’s development, but did you know it benefits people of all ages. Play adds to the joy to life, relieves stress, can supercharge learning, and connects you to others and the world around you.


1 hour Sessions

We cater for office parties, team building, corporate events, family gatherings, hen and stag do’s, youth groups, students, scouts, birthday parties, friends meeting up – well any groups from 2 to 6 people per mobile unit (the more the merrier).

This is a mobile room – ie we come to you! You will need a space for a 10′ x 10′ (3.05m x 3.05m) for a gazebo outside (weather depending) or space for 3 medium sized pieces of furniture/props inside. (To give you an idea we can fit one entire escape room in a car).   

Are you further out than 15 miles from Malvern? Then call or email us and we’ll try and accommodate you (we have been as far as Luton before..)

For larger groups (up to 12 people) we can run 2 duplicate rooms at the same – but obviously need more space.

Please supply first names of players so we can personalise the experience for you.

Suitable for players aged 8 to 98.  Friendly staff are on hand to send in clues, hints or even spoilers should you need them. There is no limit to the number of clues provided, the emphasis is on having fun!

Each room may be monitored by a camera so we can hear and see you in action. No recordings or photos are taken at any point during the game, but we do like to take group photos once you’ve finished the room (successfully or not!)

Opening Hours

Opening hours will vary depending upon bookings (ie we come to you at a time that suits you) – Pre-booking is essential (at least 48 hours in advance)

We tend to get quite busy so we highly recommend you pre-book as early as possible.

We will try to do our best to arrive at least 45 minute prior to each booking but please note we may get held up in traffic or delayed somehow.

Please don’t hesitate to call on Alison on 07543 161629 or email to check date and time availability.

Pre- booking is essential as we need your location – we also require 1st names of all the players so that we can personalise the experience for you.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking! (These were quotes from our Irish customers – they all totally loved it)

Lena and Shauna and Niamh and Lucy popped in and had a go at the Lobby Puzzle -all did it around the 2 mins 40 second mark.

Lena and Shauna

Did both rooms (Inspectors & Mad hatter), cannot fault either of them or the owner who was very involved and really personalized the experience to make it extra memorable and enjoyable! Both are probably in the top 5 escape rooms out of the 20 I've done so far.

Jessica McGrath

Did the Inspectors Office room with seven friends, really enjoyed it, good variety of puzzles & we just about solved them in the hour!

But this weeks Group Winners for Santa's List are the Finnerans and guests - 44 minutes but no clues or hints!

Finnerian Family

An amazing time for people looking for something different to do, or experienced escape room players alike!

The owner, Ali, puts everything into making her rooms something special. Without spoiling the fun for anyone, there's nice personal touches and a great overall experience throughout.

Myself and my partner (who both are escape room enthusiasts) went along yesterday to do the Investigation room. We had a great time in it and managed to escape with 10 minutes left in the hour. We came back later that evening to do a newly built room, "Mad hatter", based on Alice in Wonderland. This room was even more special and is something everyone needs to try.

Compared to the rooms we've done in Dublin, Galway, as well as abroad, Celtic Escape Rooms ranks very very highly. Everything from the atmosphere, to the puzzle and build quality to the reception are simply fantastic.

For those of you looking for something different to do, this is the perfect place! I'd recommend giving the Alice themed room a shot first, you'll probably end up hooked right then and there 🙂

It's Fun - It's Interactive

It’s a new fun activity for all and it’s coming to you!

What is an escape room?

Well, it’s the latest in live experiences. You are locked in a room and have one you have one hour to solve the quizzes, puzzles and clues and escape the room!
We provide a mobile escape room which means we come to you.

Is it scary?

On the contrary, it’s fun. Some escape rooms worldwide have scary escape room themes. We have chosen not to as we are a family run business and we feel that escape room games should be available to all. There are no clowns or zombies or anything that will make you jump or scared – just good clean thought-provoking fun.

Are there different rooms?

Yes, we offer two different rooms and room types.

Mad As A Hatter  – your aim is to help Alice and friends find the Queen of Hearts “Scents of Humour” before she shouts “Off with their heads!”  – suitable for ages 8 and up, and is set for 2  – 8 players! If you’ve never done an escape room before this is a great place to start.  Having said that, we have had great reviews from “professional” escape room goers too. There are no limits to the number of clues hints or spoilers – just have fun!

Pirates Wanted: Coming soon …..

Will I be trapped in the room?

There is nothing to stop you leaving the room or gazebo at anytime. The aim of the game, however, is to solve puzzles in the room and exit through a “fake” door.

How long do I have?

You have One Hour, so after arriving we go through a few things with you and that’s it, you and your team are up and running.

We start the clock and you have just one hour to complete the room.

We also have a laugh afterwards with you and will take some photos so it’s a good experience overall.

We love it and think it’s the best job in the world.
