Just landed for your first term in Newcastle? Back after a long summer elsewhere? Treasure Hunt Newcastle 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 Newcastle. Welcome! New term, new place, new… everything! But what to see first? Treasure Hunt Newcastle 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 Newcastle. 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 Grey's Monument.
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 Newcastle 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 Newcastle for you to discover and sample the waters! Pirate fancy dress is optional ☠️
“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!”
