Mix it up with Treasure Hunt York this Father's day

Posted on June 14, 2021

A pirate map leading to grog for father’s day!

With Father’s day coming up, it can be hard to think of something original to get for your dad. Is it going to be another gift pack of beers with a cheesy card from Tesco? You can do better!

How about mixing it up this year with a trip into town to play Treasure Hunt York? It’s a fun way to spend some quality time with Dad, getting out the house in the (hopefully) lovely June weather.

“With new covid restrictions, last month my boyfriend and I (both in our 20s) were looking for something to do that could keep us entertained in the rain all day...thank goodness we found the Treasure Hunt!
Even though we both live in York we still managed to discover new backstreets we had never seen before. Thank you so much for keeping us entertained! 100% recommend.”

It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together (8+ are welcome too if you want to make a family day of it - 15 and under go FREE).

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.

Plenty of pubs 🍺

Don’t worry, there’s plenty of time for ale and grog along the way if Dad rebels. We’ve planned a carefully designed route that passes some of York’s best pubs and cafes so you won’t go thirsty.

Last minute? No problem! ⌛

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.

Have a laugh this Father’s day, book now!

“Would thoroughly recommend to people looking for a fun and interesting way to explore!”
