The “Fresh” Way To Experience A Nottingham Escape Room


Rise and shine Nottingham, there’s a new challenge on the horizon! 

Until now, Nottingham’s curious, quick-witted and creative explorers have been trapped behind doors, confined to opening hours and incarcerated within four walls. 

But not on anymore!

Prepare to take on new challenges, puzzles and fiddly riddles to uncover Nottingham’s many fables and foibles with CityDays!

Our Nottingham escape rooms reveal more than just your competitive streak. 

You still get all the puzzles, riddles, cryptic clues and challenges of a traditional escape room – but instead of being cooped up inside, we take the games outdoors

No doors. No ceilings. No specific time slots. No hassle. That’s the CityDays way!

Urban Escape Rooms Nottingham: An Outdoor Extravaganza


If anyone can do it, it’s you, Nottingham.

We love the philosophy of traditional escape rooms - you know, working together as a team, solving puzzles, deciphering riddles, all that stuff! But we fundamentally disagree with one point: that you have to be inside to do it.

You see, our Nottingham escape rooms are held outdoors, and look a little different from other games you might have played. Let us fill you in…

CityDays’ Outdoor Nottingham Escape Rooms: A Lesson in “Touching Grass”


If no one’s told you to “touch grass” recently, allow us to politely introduce you to the concept.

Telling someone to “touch grass” was one of 2023’s most-used slang phrases, and it essentially means “go outside” or, as we might have said back in the day, “you need to get out more”. 

Inadvertently, we’ve been encouraging people to “touch grass” for over five years now. 

We’re passionate about turning cities into playgrounds and getting people of all ages to have fun. That’s the great thing about our outdoor Nottingham escape room games: everyone can join in. 

At CityDays, we transform cities into playgrounds by creating routes and puzzles from scratch that are designed to test you and your puzzle-solving, teamwork and observation skills, based on the city in question - in your case, Nottingham. 

You’ll have to use your powers of deduction, wit and guile to complete the game. Brains, not brawn, will win you and your team the top spot on our Nottingham leaderboard.

Prepare to take on some Nottingham escape room games as you’ve never played them before. Stick with us to find out how it works… 

How Our Escape Rooms Nottingham Work


Since our Nottingham escape “rooms” are held outdoors, they’re “built” slightly differently. After all, as there are no rooms or physical barriers involved, you might be wondering what the object of the game is…

Well, it’s really very simple. 

You and your team start at a chosen location (depending on which trail you pick). 

From there, you have to complete a set of tasks, puzzles and riddles, deciphering clues to take you between locations, sent to your phone(s) via WhatsApp. If you don’t give us the right answer, you can’t move on in the game!

When you’ve sent us the correct answer, you’ll be given new clues and challenges to lead you to your next destination. Each location is located a short walking distance away, and may require you to keep your eyes peeled for possible clues along the way…

Once you’ve answered all our clues, visited all the destinations and completed the trail, we’ll tally up your score. This is based on how many correct answers you got, any time penalties you accrued, and how many hints you asked for. 

All you need to play our games is a phone with WhatsApp, access to cellular data and a pair of comfy shoes. That’s it!

Any questions? Here’s how it works
