Our Cambridge treasure hunts – what are they all about?

You are told where to start your treasure hunt, given simple directions to follow and a map of the area. In between directions you have things to hunt for by simply looking around on buildings, plaques, signs and statues etc. They are not a race and once you have your treasure hunt you are free to do it whenever you like.

When you have completed your treasure hunt why not mark the answers while having a cup of tea, an ice cream or how about a picnic on a sunny day. If you visit the members area on our website you can personalize and print your very own huntfun certificates. (There is no actual treasure at the end by the way sorry!)

Wheelchair access.

This hunt is suitable for wheelchair users.
