The Best Treasure Hunt in Brighton

Treasure hunt Brighton

Welcome to Brighton, Britain’s urban playground of over 200 years!

Best known for its iconic pier, pebble beach, and being one of the UK’s most LGBTQ+ friendly cities, Brighton is a magnet for fun-loving revellers from all over the world. 

And it’s not hard to see why.

With so much going for it, it can be easy to get swept up in the magic of Brighton: the night life, the relaxed atmosphere, the friendliness and the general “vibes”. 

But at CityDays, we encourage you to take a closer dive into your city, to explore Brighton’s unique identity. To take a second look at the stories, figures and fascinating chapters in its history that is so often forgotten. 

Trust us when we say you’ll be surprised at what you stumble across along the way - if you only pay attention. 

How Our Brighton Escape Rooms Work

Brighton scavenger hunt

Our treasure hunts in Brighton have been designed to expose the best aspects of the city. That means you’ll pass several iconic landmarks but also stop by many intriguing places that you probably have never noticed before.

Like a live-action board game, you’ll move around key features, 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’ Brighton treasure hunts the best in the city. 

It’s all there 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

Scavenger hunt Brighton

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 Brighton 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 Brighton scavenger hunts 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 Brighton Treasure Hunt: What Will You Find?


We emphasise the historical aspects of our Brighton treasure hunts because they lie at the heart of the city’s development. What happened all those years ago is what led us to today, where Brighton stands out as one of the best cities to live in and visit in the UK.

But if history isn’t your bag, don’t worry. We won’t ask you and your team anything you won’t be able to figure out for yourselves, and besides, there’s a lot more to a place than just its history.

We rely on street art, pubs, cafes and much, much more to show our explorers what’s what on our Brighton treasure hunts.

So if you’re planning a birthday party, work do, hen or stag night or a good old fashioned pub crawl – we’re right here to help you celebrate with an adventure of your own. Just pick your preferred route, come up with a clever team name and get started when you’re ready. 

We’ll see you at the top of the leaderboard!
