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 York game to your basket!
Take your mum on an adventure this Mother’s day with a trip into town to play Treasure Hunt York 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 York’s best pubs and cafes so you won’t go thirsty.
Just next to Museum Garden's you'll find Nola - an exceptional restaurant and bar styled like a 1920s Art Deco theme. It's a gorgeous place for some tapas and cocktails. Alternatively, The Habit Cafe Bar is a quirkly little spot offering seats over looking the Minster.
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 thought the clues were pitched at the correct level, not too easy and made you look very closely at your surroundings, without being impossible to solve.
We had a fun day exploring York with a few pit stops for refreshement between clues.”
