Just landed for your first term in Leeds? Back after a long summer elsewhere? Treasure Hunt Leeds is a great way to get to know your new home town. Ideal for Freshers, we’ll take you to all the coolest spots in just an afternoon.
You’ve finally made it to Leeds. Welcome! New term, new place, new… everything! But what to see first? Treasure Hunt Leeds 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 Leeds. 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 beautiful Leeds Art Gallery.
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 Leeds 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 Leeds for you to discover and sample the waters! Pirate fancy dress is optional ☠️
“A really fun and interesting way to be introduced to the area! Having never visited before it was an exciting and informative way to see the city. We did it as a pair and enjoyed following clues along with stopping at suggested shops and pubs. Lots of fun!”
