Of course you've seen the Minster, the Shambles and Clifford's Tower…
Just like everyone else. Like all those "top 5 things to do in York" guides.
But that's not really you.
You like to see more. Spot the lesser known sights. Find the quirky, indie cafe. Live like a local.
You like a bit of history, but not a three-hour lecture.
You like to see the city on your own terms and
have a bit of fun.
If you haven't heard of a treasure hunt,
you're in for a treat.
It's the best way for people like you to see the city.
Designed for adults, it's like a walking tour crossed with an escape room.
Pore over treasure maps and ponder cryptic clues.
Scour Bath's beautiful streets to find the answers.
Follow a carefully designed route around Bath. Explore its gorgeous streets, take in the magnificent Royal Crescent, and wind your way through smaller alleys and squares. Take the lesser known path but still see the Abbey and the other main sights.
Spot things other people don't notice like the hand-prints of famous visitors, hidden in plain sight.
Learn some fun facts and stories like the one about the Bath architect who was obsessed with Druids. Nothing too heavy, you're here to have fun!
Go at your own pace. Pop into tea shops or have a picnic by Royal Crescent. No rush.

Treasure Hunt Bath will take you on a fab route around the city, spotting clues and following treasure maps, all at your own pace.
A fabulous activity for all ages”
This was such a brilliant experience the technology was simple and easy to use. We had so much fun, the clues were just the the right level of challenge and the distance was very easy. The route was very interesting learnt lots about Bath and it was a perfect way to get introduced to a new city or just have a pleasant walk with your partner or fiends. Well worth the money! Cant wait to try the other cities.
By far the best”
I have participated in regular treasure hunts in London and other cities too but this is by far the best. My partner and I found it challenging enough but insightful, easy to follow the clues without being too obvious and loved the interspersed history. It was a really well thought out game and would thoroughly recommend.

This is a great way to see the city!”

Along the way, Bess will tell you a few interesting facts and stories about the things you're spotting in Bath!”
We learnt new things and actually appreciated the beautiful scenery as we went around the city.

We had such a laugh and a great day out!

A treasure hunt is more like a game than a traditional tour. You have to follow treasure maps, solve cryptic clues and keep your eyes peeled to find the answers.
You’ll have some banter with our friendly pirate Captain Bess. She’ll put you in your place if you get too many answers wrong!
You can start when you like, there’s no fixed start time. You can even finish the next day if you get stuck in a nice pub!
Fancy a picnic in front of the Royal Crescent? Enjoy! Take it at your own pace. Look out for pretty cafes and tea-rooms along the route.
Play on your own terms. It's just you and your team, like a private tour.
What a fabulous idea!”
We stopped for lunch part way through, (lovely place - Cafe Lucca - amazing) and stopped and started and all in all took about 3.5 - 4 hours (can do in less of you don’t stop so much!) brilliant thing about this is that you can go as fast or as slow as you like!!
It’s all on your phones, there’s nothing to print or collect.
Book online and you’ll get a link to start your game straight away.
We’re flexible. If you change your mind, or if you can't make it to Bath, play another day or cancel for free.
We think you're going love Treasure Hunt Bath!
If you don't have fun, we promise to give your money back. We'll ask for a quick chat on the phone to understand what went wrong.
No spoilers! You'll see the main sites like the Roman Baths and the famous crescents, but the real fun is finding the clues and spotting interesting details right there in the street.
Great way to discover the city !”
It was really fun and instructive. It makes you explore the city and see details you would not see otherwise.
Bath Abbey - the awe-inspiring former Benedictine monastery
Parade Gardens - formerly an orchard belonging to Bath Abbey, these delightful gardens offer the perfect place for a stroll.
Pulteney Bridge - built in 1769, this bridge incorporates shops and spans the River Avon. It’s one of Bath’s most famous sights!
The Corridor - one of the world’s earliest retail arcades, following in the steps of the fashionable arcades of Paris and London.
The Assembly Rooms - these magnificent rooms were built in the 18th century as a new venue for balls, concerts and card games. Today, this beautiful building is run by the National Trust and home to the Fashion Museum.
The Circus - A circle of magnificent Georgian Houses surrounding a cluster of huge plane trees.
Royal Crescent - an impressive terrace of 30 Grade 1 Listed Georgian houses laid out in a sweeping crescent overlooking Royal Victoria Park.
Theatre Royal - Bath’s historic and beautifully renovated theatre offers a fantastic programme of drama, opera, comedy and dance.
Thermae Bath Spa - Britain’s only naturally warm, mineral-rich waters mean you can bathe as the Romans did over 2,000 years ago!
The Roman Baths - once part of day-to-day life in Ancient Rome, these wonderfully preserved Roman remains will transport you back in time to understand how people lived in the town of Aquae Sulis!
By the end, you'll have seen most of the city. You've probably spotted a cafe or two you'd like to revisit!
If it's patchy rain, you can pop into a tea-room or a pub along the route: the treasure hunt is flexible.
If it's really bad and you'd like to switch days, that's fine. Or you can split it over two days if you like.
If it's really pouring and you don't fancy swimming in the Avon, we’ll give your money back, even if you've started the game.
Don't worry! The treasure hunt has some tricky clues, but if you get stuck you can ask for a hint.
We make sure you don't get completely stuck, ambling round and round the Circus...
Yes! You already know the city, but we bet you'll notice things you've walked past a hundred times before.
We've worked hard to find the less-obvious stuff - beyond the typical blue plaques - and some interesting stories and anecdotes. You're going to have a great time!
The game is designed for adults and curious kids aged 8 and up.
Younger ones are welcome though you may have to help by interpreting the clues and Captain Bess' pirate speak.
The whole route is pushchair friendly, avoiding steps or showing step-free alternative routes.
We’re a family of four with a 13 year old and a 11 year old. Mum was map reader, dad reminded kids about clues, and kids were hunting for clues.”
Excellent tour, all the sights without having to drag the kids from one to another. Hints were handy - and needed! Great idea would highly recommend.
It's 2 miles walking but there are lots of places to rest. There are cafes and restaurants along the way, or relax in Victoria Park which is a short detour from Royal Crescent.
