Types of Treasure Hunt

What better way to immerse yourself in the city than by discovering it for yourself? At Exploring York we offer three exciting and energetic Treasure Hunt packages, allowing you to quest through the city in teams and discover York’s splendour and secrets. Exploring York treasure hunts are managed by an experienced event co-ordinator, allowing you to focus on competing against your friends or colleagues in a race against time!

York has a huge variety of ale houses, haunted pubs, medieval inns and modern bars. Our Pub Hunt package will guide your teams on a journey to some of the most historic ale houses in the city. This package includes York pub quiz questions and related tasks to complete, making time for a tipple or two of York’s superb selection of real ales. Most suitable as an evening hunt.
