It’s that time of year again, looking for the perfect way to show your mum how great she is. Give her the perfect gift this year- an afternoon with you! Put the chocolates back on the shelf and add a Treasure Hunt Newcastle game to your basket!
Take your mum on an adventure this Mother’s day with a trip into town to play Treasure Hunt Newcastle It’s a fun way to spend some quality time with Mum, getting out the house and making memories together. Gift vouchers are available too, so you can decide together when to go: get yours here.
It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together (ages 8+ are welcome too if you want to make a family day of it).
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 all be led around the city by a bossy pirate character who sends messages to your phones.
Don’t worry, there’s plenty of time for stops along the way if Mum rebels! We’ve planned a carefully designed route that passes some of Newcastle’s best pubs and cafes so you won’t go thirsty.
You could celebrate completing Treasure Hunt Newcastle with a cocktail in Mother Mercy. Voted one of the top 50 cocktail bars in the UK, it offers intimate table service in a unique setting. We'd also recommend the Crown Posada. This lovely old pub oozes Victorian character and is nestled down by the quayside.
You’ll find some useful info for your voyage here.
What’s more, if you’re disorganised like me and you’re reading this on Sunday morning, no problem! You can book last minute, unlike all restaurants which are all booked up.
“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!”
