Please due to covid be patient with the Pubs we work with, they have had a really tough year and will be reluctant with discounts (St Albans Pub has suspended them with me for now). It will also be difficult for us to guarantee to book you any tables this Spring and Summer because it is going to be very busy. Please be understanding and we will try our best to cater to your needs. :)

The Great Game Treasure Hunt St Albans is a unique outdoor treasure hunt. Perfect to do whilst isolating, in order to get outdoors and exercise during these times, especially when you're stuck for something to do! NHS guidelines say it safe to go on walks outside and are encouraging exercise that doesn't involve close face to face contact with strangers. If you can't go to the gym, cinema or theatre, why not try a safe treasure hunt?

We are rated 5/5 on Google and 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor!

The hunt will lead you around the city taking in all its famous landmarks and explaining a little bit of its history along the way.

You are given a treasure map, compass and clues to find your way along the route. If you are successful you will reveal where to draw the X on your treasure map to show the location of your treasure - a great pub! 

It's one of the best activities to do in St Albans or days out in St Albans you can find! :)

It can also be done as a Team Building Exercise or Corporate day out!

What to expect:

  • An exciting day out.

  • Exploring famous landmarks and secret back streets.

  • Challenge yourself with puzzles, riddles, codes and orienteering work.

  • If you are successful you will reveal where to draw the X on your treasure map to locate the treasure.

  • The treasure is a great pub at the end, that might do a discount but because of the crazy covid year they have had have recently stopped because they can't afford to.

    Booked this to try something different. I had emailed them beforehand in regards to the pub and they were very quick at getting back to me and letting me know the pub wouldn't be open until May. We still decided to do the hunt without the pub and go there another day once open. You receive your pack in the post with everything you need. Only thing when starting the hunt. Straightaway, one of the clues and the direction to go was closed off (assuming due to Covid)..Wasn't too much of an issue though as we just jumped to the next clue but it did affect the picture finding as we couldn't see the sign we needed! The area covered was larger than I had expected so be prepared to walk. All in all was a good day out and something different to do. Would recommend.
