You’ve finally made it to Chester. Welcome! New term, new place, new… everything! But what to see first? Treasure Hunt Chester is a great way to spend some time getting to know people in your new home.
Even if your fresher year is behind you- you and your mates will put your knowledge (and maybe your friendships!) to the test with Treasure Hunt Chester. Our route skirts past the tourist traps and will take you to some real hidden gems you may not have discovered yet.
It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together. Crews can be any size, although it might be more fun to split into smaller groups and see who can be the first to solve the final clue!
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 be answering to Captain Bess, your bossy pirate leader who’ll send messages to your phones to guide you along the way. It’s a bit like an escape room, across the whole city!
Your adventure begins at the front of Chester Town Hall.
You’ll easily find it on your maps app. And for an effortlessly planned day, you’ll find some more helpful info here.
Exploring a new place is a good way to make it feel like home. Treasure Hunt Chester takes you round all the touristy highlights and some of the best local gems. We’ve strategically navigated past some great pubs and cafes in Chester for you to discover and sample the waters! Pirate fancy dress is optional ☠️
“We loved puzzling out the clues and each one of us was able to contribute something to solve the puzzles. This activity was a great way to explore the city and we spent four hours on the treasure hunt, with leisurely stops for lunch, coffee and ice cream.”
