A group of friends playing treasure hunt

The UK is BURSTING with amazing places, people and things to do. Having a Great British adventure this summer? With Treasure Hunt Bath you’ll see some of the best bits, and hidden gems that Bath has to offer. Whether you’re travelling for miles or minutes, grab your shipmates and keep reading!

With so much to see in Bath it can be hard to make sure you’re not missing out. Our routes have been cleverly designed and playtested to guide you to the best spots, from tourist highlights to local hangouts, you and your crew are sure to uncover some real treasures.

How does it work? ☠️

It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together. If you’re adventuring with a large crew, we recommend splitting into smaller groups and seeing who can solve the final clue first! (after a few refreshment breaks along the way of course!) Captain Bess, our bossy pirate leader, sends cryptic clues, and treasure maps to your phone, shipmates work together to solve the clues and discover the next part of the journey. Ages 8+ are welcome too if you want to make a family day of it!

“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.”
