Just landed for your first term in Oxford? Back after a long summer elsewhere? Treasure Hunt Oxford is a great way to get to know your new home town. Ideal for Freshers, we’ll take you to all the coolest spots in just an afternoon.

You’ve finally made it to Oxford. Welcome! New term, new place, new… everything! But what to see first? Treasure Hunt Oxford is a great way to spend some time getting to know people in your new home.

Back in Oxford for more?

Even if your fresher year is behind you- you and your mates will put your knowledge (and maybe your friendships!) to the test with Treasure Hunt Oxford. Our route skirts past the tourist traps and will take you to some real hidden gems you may not have discovered yet.

How does it work? ☠️

It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together. Crews can be any size, although it might be more fun to split into smaller groups and see who can be the first to solve the final clue!

You’ll be testing out your essential pirate skills - following treasure maps, solving cryptic clues, and looking carefully around the city to find the answers. You’ll be answering to Captain Bess, your bossy pirate leader who’ll send messages to your phones to guide you along the way. It’s a bit like an escape room, across the whole city!

Of course there’s stops! 🍻

Exploring a new place is a good way to make it feel like home. Treasure Hunt Oxford takes you round all the touristy highlights and some of the best local gems. We’ve strategically navigated past some great pubs and cafes in Oxford for you to discover and sample the waters! Pirate fancy dress is optional ☠️

We thoroughly enjoyed the Treasure Hunt. It was a good length and the clues both made us think and showed us parts of Oxford we'd never noticed before, and we're local! The brief pieces of educational information were interesting and informative in equal measure, and all were accessible despite Covid restrictions. It was a fun way to spend a pandemic birthday!
