Have fun and stay safe with Treasure Hunt Liverpool

Treasure Hunt Liverpool is a fun outdoor activity that’s good for your body and mind!

It’s a fantastic way to see this beautiful city which - let’s face it - is much needed after weeks of strict lockdown.

Here are some pointers to stay safe, act responsibly and look out for each other during this coronavirus outbreak in line with the government guidelines :

  • Play with your own household. To avoid potentially spreading the virus to others, only play with people you are already regularly exposed to.
  • Avoid touching anything in the city. According to the World Health Organisation , it is not certain how long the virus can survive on surfaces. The game does not require you to touch anything in the city other than your phone.
  • Keep 2 metres from other people. There’s plenty of space along the route to keep a safe distance from others. This is essential for preventing the spread of the virus and having to re-enter lockdown conditions.

You can rearrange or cancel if things change

We’re fully flexible. If you change your mind or if the government guidelines change, you can either choose a new date or we’ll give you a refund.

The clues and the maps are a lot of fun. We learnt new things and appreciated the beautiful scenery of Liverpool as we went around the city.

Is it suitable for kids? Will it be too difficult? 🦜

The game is designed to be fun and challenging for adults while allowing kids to get involved with a bit of help.

The clues are written like riddles and there’s quite a bit of pirate-speak from Captain Bess’ so that’s difficult for young ones.

Lots of families enjoy the game by having the parents read the clues and tell the kids what to look for:

We’re a family of four with a 13 year old and a 11 year old. Mum was map reader, dad reminded kids about clues, and kids were hunting for clues.”

—Lexie, Tripadvisor

As a family with children ages 6 & 8 and friends visiting for the weekend it was enjoyed by everyone. The clues were all very varied and enjoyable to solve and the children were able to join in.

—Rebecca, Tripadvisor

Don’t worry, if you get stuck you can ask for a hint and Bess will get you on your way!

We make sure no-one ever gets completely stuck.

What if the weather’s bad?

If it's patchy rain, you can spend more time in the pub breaks or stop elsewhere on the route: the game’s flexible.

If it's really bad on one day, you can either switch which day you play, or even start one day and finish the next.

If it's a total wash-out and you can't get round, we’ll give your money back, even if you've started the game.

Fun or your money back!

We’re so confident you’ll have fun, we promise to give your money back if you don’t!

All we ask is for a quick phone call to understand why.
