Can You Escape? - Edinburgh

what is an escape game logo

Can You Escape? Edinburgh opened in November 2014 with it's first mission; Operation Bald Eagle and since then has won Scotland's best family day out award, recieved a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence and been named the best performing small business by the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.

We now have two new missions for you to choose from - Operation Odyssey or Operation Deadlock both of which offer their own unique set of challenges whilst immersing you in the experience

We like to make our rooms challenging but fun so that those who escape know they've peformed like top class agents or cadets. Our completion rate is around 45% so success is by no way guaranteed. Choose carefully when gathering your team and we hope to see you soon to find out if you have what it takes to beat the clock.

Where to find us - 5 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, EH8 8AE


There is limited on street parking near the venue (pay by the hour). However, there is an NCP car park on St Johns Hill just around the corner, but bare in mind that this is quite pricey.


You can catch the number 6 or 60 bus from Princes Street which will drop you right outside Can You Escape HQ's door. You can also get the 35 to the Royal Mile and walk down to us along St Mary’s Street.


Hop off the tram at St Andrew’s Square then walk back towards Princes Street and along Waverley Bridge. Turn left onto Market Street and follow this around onto St. Mary’s Street until you reach the crossroads with Holyrood Road - we’re on the left.


Waverley train station connects Edinburgh with most major UK cities. If you leave the station via the Market Street exit, you can follow this street around to St. Mary’s Street until you reach the crossroads with Holyrood Road - we’re on the left.
