School’s out! (Didn’t they only just go back?!) Instead of looking ahead to days of screen time battles, you could try an interactive treasure hunt around Newcastle. Let the kids take the lead and have an adventure together!
Thank goodness the weather’s improving! And the long evenings means it’s a lot nicer being outdoors now.
But there’s a lot more to Newcastle than just the same old haunts.
Now’s a great time to spend some time together in the city centre, solving puzzles and seeing some brilliant stuff you’d forgotten about!
Treasure Hunt Newcastle is a great way to reconnect with the city.
Maybe you’ve been into the city centre a million times- with Treasure Hunt Newcastle you’ll discover places, people and things you never knew with our treasure hunt route- discovering fascinating stories and unearthing hidden gems- there’s a lot to love about Newcastle, isn’t there?
There’s no time limit so you can take your time and make a full day of it. Take a picnic and go at your own pace, or stop along the way (we’ve planned a route that takes you past some of Newcastle’s best spots for coffee, snacks and cake!) There are some great pubs and cafes by the Quayside.
It’ll keep the kids out of mischief for a good few hours and they’ll be worn out after rushing around looking for clues.
You’ll have fun puzzling over cryptic clues and following treasure maps.
The game’s designed for grown-ups - so you’ll enjoy it - and it’s suitable for kids aged 8 and up.
You’ll need to work together to help them with the cryptic clues.
The whole route is pushchair friendly.
“We had a great time doing Treasure Hunt Newcastle! It was a really good length and took us all round the city, so it was a perfect way to orientate ourselves for the rest of the weekend. The clues were a good level of challenge, and there was always a helpful hint if we needed it! Plus plenty of great recommendations for places to stop for a well earned pint. Would highly recommend to anyone!”
