Rummage for Bristol’s Bounty on a Bristol Treasure Hunt


Welcome to Bristol, the fizzing, bubbling, bursting with atmosphere West Country city that is riddled with mysteries, hidden spots and secret nooks! 

Bristol has always been a hive of activity. From pirates and merchants to suspension bridges and boycotts, this place has seen and done it all.

Luckily, with CityDays’ Bristol treasure and scavenger hunts, so can you (except in a safer, less smelly and more comfortable way)!

Whether you’re a Bristolian looking to scrub up on your West Country knowledge or a visitor hoping to spot some hidden gems, our Bristol treasure hunts are here to help you explore like you never have before.

Get The Most Out of Your Bristol Treasure Hunt


Our self-guided Bristol treasure hunts transform you into detectives, explorers and tour guides, giving you the freedom to discover the city your own way, in your own time, with people you know and love. 

From the moment you start until you finish the tour, you’re guaranteed to learn, have fun, make memories and get some fresh air and exercise.

The Best Treasure Hunts in Bristol


Our Bristol scavenger hunts are designed to show you the good stuff, cut out the boring stuff, and get you interacting with your surroundings. 

How do we do that? 

Well, we put the activity back in your hands. We’ve curated our trails so they take you around Bristol’s streets, landmarks, history, and famous figures. The only catch is - it’s up to you to solve our puzzles, riddles and clues to take you from each one to the next! 

Look up, look down, look left, look right! We don’t support littering, so we haven’t left any physical objects anywhere 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.

We find this is much the best way to ensure that our clues stay put (we don’t want anyone ruining it for the next group of adventurers!) while also allowing you to learn about Bristol.

Still a bit confused? Here’s how it works

Bristol Treasure Hunts: Uncover Bristol’s Hidden History


From being the meeting point between the two Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex to the Bristol Bus Boycott and beyond, Bristol has seen its fair share of history - and we want to share it with you!

They say knowledge is power, but we say knowledge is plunder. Well, this is a Bristol treasure hunt, after all.

Think of the treasure in our scavenger hunts as golden nuggets of information: interesting facts, weird, unnoticed quirks or bizarre discrepancies. The only physical objects you’ll take away from our treasure hunts are pictures (please do send them in, we love to see them!), so you don’t have to worry about carrying anything around with you other than your phone.

And you never know when your knowledge will come in handy for say, a pub quiz, a trivia game…or just seeming like the cleverest person in the room.
