Discover a hidden London

"The beauty of London Treasure Hunts is that it combines the facts and important details of a guided walk with the exploratory thrill of a treasure hunt." - London Planner Magazine.


What is a London Hunt?

From Shakespeare and Dick Whittington to Paddington Bear, many have explored London. Now you can follow in their footsteps with London Treasure Hunts.

Our aim is to help everyone create their own London adventure, through self-guided hunt routes that delve deep into the city's history, introducing hidden landmarks you never knew were there and casting a new slant on old favourites! 

Each hunt consists of a series of clues, some interlinked, which take you from your chosen A to B by the most interesting and varied route possible. Alongside the hunt pack, we also provide full directions and instructions for self-managing your day. For our bespoke routes we also offer an onsite service, taking all the stress out of running a larger event. 

We can cover all areas of London and have even been known to step outside the M25 on occasion, so whatever your interests or wherever you want to explore, get in touch to see how we can help you make the most out of your time in London.

Downloadable Vs Bespoke

London Treasure Hunts offers two distinct services. Our downloadable hunts are pre-set routes, frequently quality checked, which are designed to be purchased direct from the website, printed and used without amendments. These hunts are for groups of up to six people and for personal use only.


For larger and corporate groups or those looking for a more personal experience, such as a hen, stag or birthday party, we offer a bespoke service. These hunts can be based anywhere in London and we work with you to personalise them your event, each clue, puzzle and reference is personalised to create a truly unique London experience.

To discuss your requirements with our team contact us here. We aim to respond​ to every email within 24 hours. Don't be afraid to ask for what you want - we've written hunts on almost every subject under the shadow of Big Ben, from fruit and chocolate to mosquitoes and the X-Files. 

What's happening now?

We are now taking bookings for 2022 across London, Berkshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire. There's still availability throughout summer and autumn, including a few weekends! Email us at [email protected] or use the contact form to get a quote for your requirements.

Right now we're designing a reptile-themed hunt for an 8 year old's birthday party in Berkshire. We're really enjoying finding out all sorts of quirky facts about our cold-blooded friends and building a hunt in the beautiful grounds of a Grade II listed former Rectory.

In addition, we have designers out and about in Oxford putting together our first pre-written route in the City, which will be available in time for the summer. 

We haven't forgotten about London and are re-testing our existing routes there to bring them into 2022. 

Finally - over the year London Hunts will be making the switch to Breadcrumb Mysteries, complete with snazzy new website, logo and everything! We'll still be providing the same unique tailored events you know and love, but across a new wider region. As part of the change we're also very excited to unveil our new specialist wedding and children's services, which will have their own dedicated areas, alongside our corporate and personal designer hunt service.

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for an awesome stag do treasure hunt. The stag loved it as did everyone else - the clues and the route were just perfect and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to everyone I know.
