Autumn is a special time to enjoy Oxford: the scenery looks spectacular, the trees are turning yellow and orange and the crisp blue days are perfect for exploring. Plus, without the summer tourists there’s a little more space to enjoy the city!

Treasure Hunt Oxford is the perfect way to enjoy Oxford this autumn!

Oxford’s full of hidden gems, but they’re easy to miss. Our carefully designed route around the city will show you the best bits! See the famous bits like the Bodleian library and the Radcliffe Camera, and also spot things hidden in plain sight like the mythical creature that's part swan, part eagle.

A treasure hunt works more like a game than a walking tour. Have you got what it takes to solve the cryptic clues around Oxford? You’ll be put to the test by Captain Bess, a bossy pirate character who sends messages to your phones!

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! (8+ are welcome too if you want to make a family day of it - 15 and under go FREE).

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.

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!

Excellent Team Building Activity

If you’re looking for something different to do with your team, Treasure Hunt Oxford could be just the thing. You’ll work together to solve clues, discovering new things about familiar places. You’ll be able to plan stops along the way to have a cuppa together and get to know each other outside of the work environment. Whether yours is an in-person or remote office, Treasure Hunt Oxford is an excellent way to build your team. The route has been designed to avoid steps, but there may be cobbles and steep parts - get in touch if you’ve got any questions.
