Transform Birmingham into a Living Treasure Chest with a Birmingham Treasure Hunt

Birmingham-treasure-hunt-03

Your urban odyssey starts here…

Plunder the hallowed heights of Birmingham with a CityDays treasure hunt!

Exploration meets fun in this live-action board game activity. You’ll move around Birmingham's curious landmarks and historic anomalies by solving puzzles, answering riddles and sniffing out clues. 

Absorb history, find hidden gems and explore like you never have before as you delve into a treasure hunt in Birmingham that takes you beyond the obvious and into the unnoticed with CityDays!

The Best Urban Treasure Hunt in Birmingham

Birmingham-treasure-hunt-02

Beyond its extensive networks of canals and the famous Gas Street Basin, Birmingham is home to plenty of hidden treasures and fascinating facts - you just need to know where to find them. 

Birmingham is a proud city and full to the brim with heritage, culture, history and pioneers of old and new. Its beauty lies in its powerhouse energy, its willingness to evolve, grow and put on a show. 

Our treasure hunt in Birmingham has been designed to expose the best aspects of the city while also putting you through your paces.

Like a live action board game, you’ll move around the landmarks, weave between historical monuments and collect facts as you go. No detail is too big or small - and you may have to look up, down, left and right before you figure out the answer! 

That’s part of what makes CityDays’ Birmingham treasure hunts the best in the city. 

There’s hundreds of years’ worth of history waiting for you. And all of it has to be seen to be believed…

Any questions? Here’s how it works

Sustainability and Environmental Impact

The whole premise of our business relies on appreciating the beauty and intrigue of urban environments, so the last thing we want to do is leave rubbish lying around.

We believe that Birmingham has enough curious objects and fascinating features that any physical contribution we’d make would pale in comparison to the existing stuff. We also don’t support littering, so we don’t leave any tangible objects for you to find.

Instead, we’ve made use of existing buildings, curious city quirks, sculptures, pieces of street art and even street furniture as clues.

The only stuff you’ll leave our Birmingham scavenger hunt with are fond memories, plenty of knowledge and potentially a place at the top of our leaderboard. 

Oh, and plenty of photos too - don’t forget to send them in to us, we love seeing them and we might even reward you for your efforts…

Your Birmingham City Centre Treasure Hunt

Birmingham-treasure-hunt-01

Underrated and undiscovered, Birmingham’s city centre is an explorer’s paradise.

Maybe due to its ideal central location, Birmingham has attracted trailblazers for centuries. Around 90% of the UK can be reached from Birmingham in under four hours (handy, if you’re into adventures) but it also helps explain why this hub is under-appreciated and undiscovered by many… 

Besides being the birthplace of the iconic Balti curry (yes, it really was invented right here in Brum), it’s also home to the UK’s busiest theatre, contains the most UK Michelin star restaurants outside of London and the largest public library in Europe!

But more than that, the essence of Birmingham is hidden in plain sight for all to see. 

What better way to open your eyes and ears to Birmingham’s whispered secrets than with a Birmingham treasure hunt? 

Team-Building Scavenger Hunts in Birmingham

Birmingham-treasure-hunt-04

Challenges are at the heart of our Birmingham treasure hunts, so it’s only fair that you challenge us in return.
