Fable 3 Gold Keys and Doors Locations Guide

You will these Gold Keys to open the Gold Key Doors to get the rewards.

The Fable 3 Gold Keys and Gold Doors are among the many hidden secrets in the lands of Albion. Unlike Silver Keys, the Gold Keys do not open chests for you. Instead, you can unlock the Gold Key Doors using these, and all these doors yield some treasures once you explore the area beyond them. Finding all the Silver and Gold Keys can unlock the “I Am The Keymaster” achievement. Following is a guide to the locations of all Fable 3 Gold Keys and Gold Doors.

Gold Key 1 – Mistpeak Valley

There is a cave entrance on the far side of the demon door in the hills; if you examine the Mistpeak valley map, you can see this entrance. Run uphill to the cave, hang a lift just before the path to Brightwall Village. Go past the treasure chest across the grassy mountainous patch, and you will come across a brownish cave entrance (Chillbreath Cavern).

Run through the cave and take the path that goes upward. There are several chests scattered in your way, also one 15 silver keys chest. Keep moving and you will come across a door, go outside, and once you are outside, you can see a gold key of Mistpeak Valley floating over ruins.

Gold Key 2 – Driftwood

Do the “Restoration” side quest in Millfields; the quest requires you to pay 750 Gold to repair the bridge. This will open up Driftwood, once you are in Driftwood; you need to do three side quests An Island Getaway, Pest Control and Giftwood for Driftwood.

After you are done with these side quests, leave the area and return later. When you come back to the area, you can reach a Flit Switch on an island across a new bridge.

Follow the Switch around the area and hit it with a ranged or melee weapon. Keep hitting the Switch on your path and it will continue leading you to the mountains. At the top, you will notice a warp zone that will lead you to the Driftwood Gold Key in Fable 3.

Gold Key 3 – Aurora: The Veiled Path

At the stairs of the veiled path is an entrance to the new area, The Enigma. Go inside and look for the Flit Switch at the end of the room above the door. Now, use the fireballs to fire up the torches in the next area that you access with the help of the Flit Switch.

Gold Key 4 – Aurora: Shifting Sands

Once you have that key the trail telling you where to use it will vanish. Go to the desert area and run across the vast dunes. Now, on the far side, turn left and follow the cliff face until you find a path going down. At the bottom, use the key that you get from the person to unlock the gate and access a new area with a few enemies. Go a few steps further to find this gold key.

Gold Key 5 – Sanctuary

Once you become the King of Albion in Fable 3, enter the treasure room, look up and you will see a gold key in The Sanctuary. It is not one of the other 4 gold keys and also doesn’t count in the achievement. To access it, you need 5,000,000 Gold. You can turn in that kind of money in many ways. Sunset Demon Door gives you one million gold, you can buy shops early, and big shops give in more profits.

Once you have the key, find the corresponding chest at the bottom of the Gold mass. To lift all the golden mass on top of the chest, transfer it to the Albion Treasury. Finally, use the key and unlock the chest to get the legendary weapon.


If the sanctuary gold key in Fable 3 has disappeared, there is nothing to worry about. In effect, the game does not give a prompt showing you picked the key from its place. Just transfer your gold into the Albion Treasury and go for the legendary weapon chest.

Fable 3 Gold Key Door Locations

There are four golden doors in different areas of Fable 3, all of which can be unlocked using the gold keys. Each door yields at least some rewards and a small area to explore beyond it. Here are all the Gold Door locations in the game.

As you take the next long stairs, you will come across another minor enemy. After that, you can go through the next door, hit the Flit Switch, and then jump down on the Bridgeway. Take out the enemies in your path before hitting the final Switch.
