School’s out! (Didn’t they only just go back?!) Instead of looking ahead to days of screen time battles, you could try an interactive treasure hunt around Oxford. Let the kids take the lead and have an adventure together!
Thank goodness the weather’s improving! And the long evenings means it’s a lot nicer being outdoors now.
But there’s a lot more to Oxford than just the same old haunts.
Now’s a great time to spend some time together in the city centre, solving puzzles and seeing some brilliant stuff you’d forgotten about!
Treasure Hunt Oxford is a great way to reconnect with the city.
Maybe you’ve been into the city centre a million times- with Treasure Hunt Oxford you’ll discover places, people and things you never knew with our treasure hunt route- discovering fascinating stories and unearthing hidden gems- there’s a lot to love about Oxford, isn’t there?
There’s no time limit so you can take your time and make a full day of it. Take a picnic and go at your own pace, or stop along the way (we’ve planned a route that takes you past some of Oxford’s best spots for coffee, snacks and cake!) There's an ancient, hidden pub at the half-way point.
It’ll keep the kids out of mischief for a good few hours and they’ll be worn out after rushing around looking for clues.
You’ll have fun puzzling over cryptic clues and following treasure maps.
The game’s designed for grown-ups - so you’ll enjoy it - and it’s suitable for kids aged 8 and up.
You’ll need to work together to help them with the cryptic clues.
The whole route is pushchair friendly.
“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!”
