It’s that time of year again, looking for the perfect way to show your mum how great she is. Give her the perfect gift this year- an afternoon with you! Put the chocolates back on the shelf and add a Treasure Hunt Oxford game to your basket!
Take your mum on an adventure this Mother’s day with a trip into town to play Treasure Hunt Oxford It’s a fun way to spend some quality time with Mum, getting out the house and making memories together. Gift vouchers are available too, so you can decide together when to go: get yours here.
It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together (ages 8+ are welcome too if you want to make a family day of it).
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 all be led around the city by a bossy pirate character who sends messages to your phones.
Don’t worry, there’s plenty of time for stops along the way if Mum rebels! We’ve planned a carefully designed route that passes some of Oxford’s best pubs and cafes so you won’t go thirsty.
The Turf Tavern is a historic pub and a great spot for a drink, because of its charming and cozy atmosphere. For something a little more classy, then you could try the Quod Restaurant & Bar. This stylish location has an impressive selection of cocktails, wines, and beers.
You’ll find some useful info for your voyage here.
What’s more, if you’re disorganised like me and you’re reading this on Sunday morning, no problem! You can book last minute, unlike all restaurants which are all booked up.
“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!”
