Description

Fancy something a little different for your next family day out? Gather the whole clan together, pull on some comfy walking shoes and set out for a memorable day out with this treasure hunt experience. Whether you want to see your local area through a different lens or take in a new city, our treasure hunt packs will provide you with hours of fun.

How it works:

Once you’ve purchased your activity voucher, a PDF pack with your scavenger hunt clues will be sent to you. You can choose from two different sets of hints:

● The easy clues are perfect for all ages. These straightforward hints ask for something you should be able to easily observe on your treasure hunt, such as information from a plaque along the way.
● The cryptic clues pose more of a challenge and are perfect for older participants. They might ask for something harder to spot, require some general knowledge, or read more as a riddle than a straightforward question.

In addition to these two sets of clues, you will also receive three bonus rounds that you can go through alongside the main hints:

● Picture round - this round requires you take pictures of certain places and objects you encounter on your treasure hunt.
● Items to collect - this is a list of everyday objects you’ll be able to gather along the scavenger hunt route.
● Pub names - available at locations where there are enough pubs around, these cryptic clues refer to the names of pubs and bars you’ll pass on your way.

Once you’ve received your treasure hunt pack, choose which clues you want to follow and print them off for everyone participating.

The scavenger hunt can be completed in a number of locations throughout England, including several treasure trails in London. Please keep in mind that this activity isn’t organised. You’ll receive your pack of treasure hunt clues by email and complete the experience on the day of your choice.

Treasure hunts in London and other cities can be completed on foot, while rural ones require driving. All of the rural scavenger hunts, as well as the majority of city-based ones are non-circular, so they will have a different start and end point.

What great fun!

This contains enough to satisfy everyone. There are two levels of treasure hunts, a photo treasure hunt, an object treasure hunt and a pub treasure hunt. We decided to do the harder of the two main treasure hunts and the picture one. This means we have plenty left for another day There were 9 of us in total (two families) and we split into two teams - 4 adults and 5 children, although the youngest child was 20 and the oldest 27! The main treasure hunt was easy to follow and accurate, we didn't get lost. Great that it tells you where to park and you start and end at the same place. Its an easy walk round York. Pictures were also well done - some easy, some very difficult that we never found, but that's ok - we didn't want it to easy. The answers matched what we found. As for fun - it was fantastic. The children interacted with each other, despite their different ages. You don't require anything to be open to do this - which was just as well as we did it on Christmas Day. There were a lot of people out and about that took an interest in what we were doing so we enjoyed interacting with the public. The streets were busy, but not as busy as usual which I think helped us enjoy it more. We still have the pub quiz and the object quiz to do. We'll go back another day to finish these. For those with younger children then there is an easier main treasure hunt and they can still do the photo and object hunts. Would definitely recommend - we are already looking for similar for other venues for this year!

Great fun!

We did the adult clues, we managed to find/answer most questions but there were a couple we couldnt find, but that makes it fun, if they were all easily found it would be boring! We played with another couple, we set off 15 mins ahead which worked well. We also took photographic evidence of our answers which was fun and also clarified some things when it came to checking the answers!! We decided that one couple would buy a winners prize and one get a losers prize! Rounded the hunt off well only we both scored the same!! Ended up just swapping prizes! Would definitely do another one somewhere else.

Treasure Hunt In Chichester

I was given a treasure hunt as a Birthday present from my sister. I didn't know what to expect but absolutely loved it! We had a fantastic family day out, learned a lot, saw things we would have never looked at and laughed constantly. I'd definitely recommend this experience to anyone, especially if they want to spend quality time with loved ones.

Covent Garden Treasure Hunt

This looked harder then it was, in-fact it was more fun that it appeared on paper too! I can highly recommend it. My top tip is: don't walk around staring at your feet!

Fabulous fun day out

Decided to do this for Mother's Day, only decided the day before but staff were brilliant and efficient - did the Surrey villages - it gets you out of your car and looking at things you would normally drive past. Looking forward to doing another.

Fun treasure hunt around York

This was a birthday gift that was a good idea to do something different, we had a lovely day around York although it was very cold and started getting dark early as we did it in December! I'd recommend you leave enough time to get around it before dusk as some things need daylight, but a great day out apart from that! We kept forgetting to watch out for pubs and find the images as well as the clued answers but there were 3 of us, 1 in charge of each aspect so good teamwork helped! There were one or two clues we couldn't find the answers to, it would help if there were pictures/descriptions with the answers to help us find it!

Great family day out

This treasure hunt was bought for me as a Christmas gift but I have saved it until now as I knew the family were all travelling to York for a holiday. There were 6 of us doing the hunt and the day we chose was dry and bright; which I think is important as its no fun tramping around anywhere if its wet. Although we were all adults we decided to do the easier clues so once we had found the starting point we agreed to meet up after two hours for lunch and to discuss our progress. At lunch it was clearly obvious that everyone was having a great deal of fun. Although we have been to York many times the hunt made us look at things differently, we looked up a lot trying to spot the picture clues and this gave us a different perspective of York and is historical architecture so not only did we have a treasure hunt we also had a history lesson. In short this was a brilliant day out and one that I would definitely recommend and will look to do again in a different location.

Great for all ages

We entertained family ranging age 12 to 59. Assorted clues to challenge us all. Was disappointed I had to print all the clues myself, was expecting a pack.
