Can You Escape? - York

what is an escape game logo

Can You Escape? York is the newest escape game to open in the city and is based right in the center - on Micklegate. We have two top rated missions called Operation Lone Eagle and our brand new mission, Operation H.E.R.O

We have 2 copies of our Lone Eagle room up and running which means we can take groups of up to 16 agents at a time and start you all together in a race to the finish. Just send us an email and we can reserve the together for you.

Worth every penny... brilliantly thought out and fab staff.. made the brain work hard!! enjoyed every minute of it ... recommended to lots of people... highlight of my weekend thank you

Katie, TripAdvisor 2016

We absolutely loved this! We manage to escape with 10 mins to spare. The member of staff that was in charge of the game was really friendly and was really good when we needed a hint here and there. (Without giving too much away). We were buzzing afterwards and talked about it for ages after we had escaped! Cannot recommend this enough! :)

We've probably done around 10 escape rooms now, and this is the best one yet. The theme, story, staff and inventive props and puzzles all worked perfectly together. A great hour of puzzling fun, would highly recommend. Can't wait to go back when the new rooms are ready.

Where to find us - 15 Micklegate, York, YO1 6JH


There is very limited parking near the venue, and two hours is the maximum (unless it’s after 3pm). There is a carpark at Nunnery Lane which is operated by the council and is approximately an eight minute walk from the venue - simply walk down Nunnery Lane until you find Micklegate on the right. There are six park and ride car parks located around York, take a look at their website for more information


Many bus services make stops right next to us on Micklegate - visit the iTravelYork website for more information.


York train station connects York to most major UK cities, and we’re only a ten minute walk away. When you leave the station, turn right along Queen Street, then turn left when you get to Micklegate and follow the road until you find us.

Our building is opposite the Travelodge and has a blue door; give the buzzer a ring when you're outside.
