Did this as part of a work event. Even though I am a local I enjoyed walking all around Oxford and seeing bits I had never noticed before. Some of the clues are quite hard so it will keep you guessing. Good that you can do it at your own pace and include rest stops.

Great way to see different parts of Oxford. Interesting routes and facts along the way, with a couple of taverns as well.

The Treasure hunt was amazing. I loved trying to work out the questions and enjoyed walking to the different locations. I explored different areas of Oxford with a fun twist.

We had great fun on this treasure hunt. Clues were a good level and it was very satisfying when you solved one! We are two adults and it wasn’t too kiddy, can be enjoyed by adults and children alike. Though I know Oxford a little, the hunt took us to places I hadn’t been before. Voucher for this made a great birthday present.

Great to get around some more hidden parts of the city and have to slow down and look around. Clues not too tricky to solve. A few top taverns on route. A good afternoons entertainment.
