Treasure hunts are an ideal way to give your brain and legs a work out while meeting new people and discovering more of London along the way.
How it works
We will be meeting outside Amba Hotel Charing Cross where you will be randomly divided into teams of 4 people (yes, you can select your own team members).
Each team will receive their treasure hunt pack including written cryptic clues which you have to find the answers for. It's up to your team to work together to find the answers. You can answer them in any order. A map of the area will also be provided. It's not a race and no lycra is needed so you can take your time getting to know the area.
The team to get the most correct answers and then return to base (a local pub) will win prizes.
Before the Treasure Hunt:
We meet just the Amba Hotel, Charing Cross Station, Strand, London WC2N 5HX where will be kicking the whole thing off. Charing Cross (Northern Line, Bakerloo, National Rail). Teams of four will be constructed and registered before setting off. Our staff will be wearing high vis jackets and a smile.
To return your answers:
We meet at the designated family friendly pubafter 2 hours where we will be marking the scores, announcing the winning team and presenting prizes. Pub details to be provided in your treasure pack on the day.
What people have said about our Treasure Hunts:
"Absolutely brilliant. I was on my own but the organisers introduced me to three other people and we formed a team. We had just the most wonderful afternoon - I don't think I've laughed so much in ages. Then, blow me, we came first as well, and I have three new fabulous friends." Philip Pike
"This was, honestly, one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had in a long time. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, having never experienced in a treasure hunt before, but the whole event was so well planned and organised that I definitely intend to sign up for more. The clues were pitched at just the right level, not too obvious and not too difficult. It was also a good excuse to explore the nooks and crannies of a really lovely part of London." Joey Kavanagh
"This was my first event and it was so much fun - I will definitely sign up for more. The sun and interesting people added to the enjoyment." Karen Cooper
