Travel back to 1940s wartime Britain, where leaving your light on can lead to a night in St Neots jail.

In partnership with Mystery in History, St Neots Museum is proud to present Season 4 of Jailbreak, our popular escape room.

It's July 1940 and the Battle of Britain is being fought in the skies above eastern England. But, you've been charged with breaking blackout and allowing light to shine from your window! You're in serious trouble and will have to spend a night in police cells, unless you can break out of jail in 60 minutes....

Jailbreak returns with a brand new season and brand new challenges, but the same Edwardian Police cells. You will have 60 minutes to solve three challenges: escaping from the police cells; from the cell corridor; and finally, from the museum itself. There are two game options: 5-8 players and 2-4 players.

We will operate this attraction in a Covid-19 secure manner. All Jailbreak staff will be fully vaccinated and masked, and we would ask that - for the time being - all team members also wear masks when arriving and whilst in communal areas. All current Covid-19 measures as stipulated by the museum will be followed, and extra time has been scheduled between sessions to enable santisation of clues, keys, handles and surfaces to take place between groups, so you can play your favourite escape room safely.

Cut-off time for online bookings is 4.30pm. Please call 07870 317312 for late availability and cancellations.
