Enjoy a fun-filled day while spending quality time with the whole family with this Family Treasure Hunt experience.

Whether you just want a gentle treasure hunt or something a bit more competitive, this activity is a unique and fun day out for groups of families and friends of all sizes.

The treasure hunt is held on public land in either a city, rural or London location. There are two different sets of clues which are based on things you will see as you follow the route. The easy clues are straightforward - they will ask you for a fact that you should be able to observe on the route, for example information on a plaque or statue. In the cryptic version, the clues are generally a bit more challenging. They may be harder to spot, require some interpretation or general knowledge, and a few will be slightly cryptic - a bit like a crossword clue.

You will also be provided with three bonus rounds that you can use alongside the main clues. These include:

- A picture round - pictures of things you can see on the route. Just write down where you saw the item pictured or find the name of the building or shop.

- Pub name clues - these are cryptic clues referring to the names of the pubs or bars that you can see on or from the route. (A few routes do not include this round because there are not enough pubs - see company website for details)

- Items to collect - a list of everyday, or not so every day, items for you to try to find or make as you go round the hunt route, for example 'a picture of the Prime Minister' (perhaps you could find or buy a newspaper).

The main clues are integrated with instructions for the route that you will need to follow. The instructions tell you where the hunt starts and which streets to go down. The main clues appear in the order you can expect to see them (but the picture and pub clues are jumbled up so you need to keep a look-out at all times).

Once you have redeemed your voucher and selected your location, you will receive a pdf file pack via email. You can then decide which sets of clues you want to use, print them off, and make as many copies as you need for the number of family members and friends taking part. As many people can take part as you would like, and they can enjoy the hunt at any time.

Please note, the London and city treasure hunts are all on foot, while the rural hunts will require a form of transport. All the rural hunts and many of the others are not a circular route so have different start and finish locations.

Please note: This is not an organised event, you will receive your treasure hunt pack to use in your own time.

Happy hunting!

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.

Treasure Hunt

We did a Treasure Hunt but as an adventure not as a competition because there were only two of us. It made a great day out and we were surprised at what we had missed on previous visits to one of our favourite towns. With two sets of main clues we can follow up with the other set later.

Good way to see some of Chichester

We enjoyed the hunt, but it didn't take as long as we thought it would (only took an hour and a half, we thought it would take about 3 hours). All but one clue spotted. Not sure it was worth the £35 it cost though.

Fun but could have been better

Bought a treasure hunt for Rotherhithe & Wapping. It was really good & we came across parts of London we have never seen & learnt a lot. But doing this as a family meant it didn;t work quite as well as it could. The treasure hunt would be great if you had teams up against each other.

✔ Yes. I recommend this product.

Treasure Hunt

It was bought from Argos as a gift and we had a lot of problems authorising the voucher and a lot of to and fro between Argos and treasure days before it was resolved, took so long the voucher expired! We continued to pursue and eventually got a pack by email to do the treasure hunt. You have to print it off yourself. The treasure hunt itself was a great experience and makes you look at cities from a different angle. It was expensive for the problems we had and the fact you have to do your own printing.
