Escape Game at Blickling Church in Norfolk
The History Mystery escape game at Blickling takes place in the beautiful St Andrew’s Church. The church stands at the gateway to the stunning Blickling Estate and dates back to the early 13th century, although it was extensively remodelled during Victorian times. Blickling Manor, which predates the 17th century Blickling Hall, belonged to the Boleyn family and, whilst there remains debate as to whether Anne herself was born there, she would certainly have worshipped in the church as a child and may even have been christened in its magnificent 15th century font.

Escape Game Accessibility
Blickling Church is a listed building in a largely unmodernised condition and only wheelchair accessible with assistance. There are no disabled toilet facilities in the building with the nearest facilities around 100m away and only available during daytime hours. To access the church there is a 20m uphill rough path through the graveyard with a number of shallow steps. Once inside the church there are a small number of single steps that have to be frequently moved up and down during the course of the game. It would be possible for a wheelchair user to play the game if they had assistance to push across the graveyard and move up and down the internal steps. The game mainly requires problem solving skills but does require an amount of manual dexterity and visual acuity, with reading glasses required if used. Pre-recorded sound effects are used and lighting levels are mostly medium throughout, with torches provided for use in low light areas.
