How long will the hunt take?


We would recommend a hunt will usually take about 2 hours to complete however….. you can go at your own pace stopping and starting as you like.  A hunt can easily take a ½ or even a full day when incorporated with visits to museums, shopping and a couple of cups of tea or a glass of wine and a bite to eat along the way

What do I get in a printed hunt?


Your individual treasure hunt booklet will include clues and directions, a map, and the answers at the back, so you can check any unsolved ones before you leave (no cheating though!!!) One booklet is all you need for a family or small group to share (up to 4)

Group hunt packs include 5 clue booklets with maps and a separate sheet of answers to be kept by the organiser, all packaged up in a printed envelope. This will cover a group of up to 20 in teams of 4 (extra clue booklets can be purchased for larger groups and our hunts are suitable for groups of upto about 200)

Do I need to know the area we want to hunt round?


Our Hunts require no prior knowledge of the area as all the clues are found by looking around and by following simple directions. Whether close to home or when visiting somewhere new, both young and old can enjoy a leisurely walk around the area learning interesting facts and seeing things you would normally just walk straight past.
