The UK is BURSTING with amazing places, people and things to do. Having a Great British adventure this summer? With Treasure Hunt Liverpool you’ll see some of the best bits, and hidden gems that Liverpool has to offer. Whether you’re travelling for miles or minutes, grab your shipmates and keep reading!

With so much to see in Liverpool it can be hard to make sure you’re not missing out. Our routes have been cleverly designed and playtested to guide you to the best spots, from tourist highlights to local hangouts, you and your crew are sure to uncover some real treasures.

How does it work? ☠️

It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together. If you’re adventuring with a large crew, we recommend splitting into smaller groups and seeing who can solve the final clue first! (after a few refreshment breaks along the way of course!) Captain Bess, our bossy pirate leader, sends cryptic clues, and treasure maps to your phone, shipmates work together to solve the clues and discover the next part of the journey. Ages 8+ are welcome too if you want to make a family day of it!

Whether you’ve lucked out and the sun is shining on fair Liverpool, or the rain is dampening play, fear not! Treasure Hunt Liverpool takes you past some excellent pubs and cafes, you can stop whenever you want to, grab a drink and cool down (or dry off! ☔) There’s no need to rush, take your time and enjoy it, grab some selfies, go viral on tik tok- you’ve got time!

As well as the best hidden gems, the route goes round some of the must-see sights of Liverpool including:

The “bombed out church” - the church without a roof, now a classy outdoor bar and events space

RC Metropolitan Cathedral (Paddy’s Wigwam) - famous for its futuristic space-ship appearance and whacky circular design.

By the end of the game, you’ll have unearthed the treasures of Liverpool and know which areas you’d like to come back to.

“ The clues and the maps are a lot of fun. We learnt new things and appreciated the beautiful scenery as we went around the city.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone as it was such an amazing experience. We had a lot of smiles and laughter and haven't stopped talking about it since.
