Updated routes for the festive season

2021-12-12 06:00:00

If you are looking for a fun, family-oriented break from the turkey this Christmas, we are happy to oblige with new and upgraded versions of our two most popular hunts - South Bank and Covent Garden. 

Both routes have now been fully updated and are 100% in the open air, allowing you to have a safe, unusual and informative family day out among all the turkey and tinsel. 

We will be contacting recent purchasers of these hunts to offer a free upgrade to the newer route over the next couple of days. 

Beyond London...

London Hunts is thrilled to announce that we are now able to take on bespoke hunts across Oxfordshire and Berkshire, in addition to our traditional London home. So whether you are a hen party in Henley, a wedding in Wallingford or an open day in Oxford, please get in contact to discuss your requirements for a unique, memorable day out.

For those of you who just want a quiet stroll with family members after Sunday lunch - watch this space!! 2022 will see the launch of a couple of pre-written routes around the area too. We have our personal favourites in the area - but if you have any requests - do let us know. We're always open to new places to explore.

2021 is shaping up to be a big year at Treasure Hunt Central. We're very excited to be expanding to Oxford and surrounding areas in the latter half of the summer, so please do contact us if you are thinking of an event in this beautiful part of the country!

We are back and taking bookings for Summer 2021!

After a very long event-free 15 months London Treasure Hunts are thrilled to be taking bookings again from June 2021. Whether you have a striking corporate event to organise, a much-delayed hen party to plan or just want to hang out with your friends and have some fun - get in touch! We're raring to get designing unique, memorable events in our fantastic city again! Email us at [email protected] or use the contact form to get a quote for your requirements. 

Like everyone we are aware of the changing situation and offer a Covid Guarantee. Should your event not be able to go ahead on the date planned due to restrictions, we will redesign and retest the route for an alternative date at no extra charge. For more details, please get in touch!

Coming Soon: Children's bespoke events

2021-05-05 12:00:00

After years of designing children's hunts and mini escape rooms as part of our bespoke business, we're looking forward to unveiling our own bespoke children's events, for school graduations, birthdays, summer fairs or just because. These new events will match age-specific clues and puzzles with our usual high quality of personalisation and fun, making for an unforgettable event!  If you would be interested in learning more about our latest venture then please get in touch!

Lockdown Escape Rooms

2021-01-12 12:00:00

Over the lockdowns, like everyone, we've been getting bored. And so have the kids we know. So we started experimenting and ran a couple of trial 'Escape Rooms' for small groups of children (within their household bubbles)! We're really rather pleased with the results and are looking forward to sharing the fun with a wider audience once the world reopens. So far we've trialled 'Free Father Christmas from his hungry reindeer' and 'Help Winnie the Pooh find his emergency honey'. Each puzzle was specifically designed for the age ranges involved and took in a wide variety of brain teasers, code breakers, physical activities and some stellar performances from our Treasure Hunts staff and volunteers, both in person and online! If you're interested in hearing more, or would like an Escape Room as a potential party activity for your child or school once we reopen, please do contact us! 

London Treasure Hunts takes over Severndroog Castle

2017-01-31 12:00:00

London Treasure Hunts was delighted to be asked to run a specially commissioned hunt at Severndroog Castle, Eltham as part of a five-year-old’s birthday party. Having visited the castle, a folly built in 1784 and only restored after a local campaign in 2014, we designed a route that made the most of the intriguing spaces the castle offered, both inside and outside, while leaving the delicate interiors untouched.

With an audience of five year olds, this was a hunt that relied heavily on imagery and activities were based around the castle’s history as far as possible, allowing participants to act up as pirates, highwaymen and even animals of the Indian subcontinent, all of which feature largely in Severndroog’s colourful past.

If you are planning an event in an unusual or sensitive setting and would like your guests to explore it in the most unique and interesting way possible, then contact us to see how we can help make your event memorable.

London Treasure Hunts launches new website

2017-01-30 18:00:00

London Treasure Hunts are delighted to launch their new website! It features all the old favourites, such as our Twitter Map, but has a much improved navigation system and a glut of information -whether you are just looking to download a hunt and go or plan an entire day out with a personal hunt.

Our new website reflects how the business has diversified since we began in 2008, when the downloadable hunts were our sole product. Since then, we’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing people and companies, creating hunts all over the UK on a bizarre variety of topics. In the last year alone we’ve worked at conferences, hen do’s, stag do’s, children’s birthday parties, incentive days, anniversaries and company induction events. To reflect this, our new website has a lot more content for those interested in commissioning their own hunt for a special day or corporate event, including some easy to access samples and answers to the most frequently asked questions.

That’s not to say we’re abandoning the downloadable hunts – oh no! Each hunt has been refreshed and we hope to start adding to our library again over the next year. In the meantime, each page has been updated with easy-to-find key information about the hunt in question, clearer and longer samples plus a more in-depth overview to help clients decide which is the right hunt for them.

This is just the start, in the near future we’re hoping to expand the site further to create a new space for Children’s Birthday Parties, as these have very different requirements to our usual, more adult-focused, work and an Events page where you’ll be able to find out about our latest venture Buggy Hunt – a shorter route aimed at new mothers and babies, trialling this summer in the SW19 area.

Please take a look around and let us know what you think of the new site – you can always find us hiding behind the red phone boxes and we’d love to chat!
