Gourmet Xmas Food Hunt

£ 35 per person
  • Food Included

Taste festive York. An indulgent winter wonderland trail of puzzles around the city's top cafes, delis, and bakeries, with plenty of Festive Gourmet goodies along the way. Expect Yuletide pastries, mince pies, festive spiced drinks, speciality meats and cheeses, and more, all from independent, local businesses specially curated to showcase the city's legendary seasonal treats.

At the same time, enjoy an escape-room style game with your team, cracking clues that weave in and out of the snow-kissed (no promises!) fairytale streets. An idyllic Christmas adventure full of puzzles and plenty of delicious surprises.

You'll visit 3 magical York establishments where each player will be treated to the following festive goodies - all included in the price;

  • Traditional Christmas baked good
  • Yuletide sweet treat and hot drink
  • Deluxe Festive Deli and Charcuterie selections
  • You'll be full of more than just festive joy by the end, we promise!

Our gourmet Christmas hunt is the perfect yuletide activity for families, friends, colleagues, and anyone who enjoys seasonal delights. Catering to both vegetarians and meat aficionados (note: we're unable to cater to vegans at this time), this experience melds fun, festive flavours, and the rich history of York. Prepare to have your mind, heart and palate entranced by this festive feast for the senses.


Suitable for children accompanying adults - you'll be surprised, the kids might help you around!

How It Works

Your team will receive clues on your phones that, once deciphered, will guide you to interesting and scenic parts of the city. At these you will solve riddles, explore the story and make decisions that will impact the rest of the game.

The route is walking distance and features optional breaks at great pubs and cafes along the way. The clues require no prior knowledge and come with hints to make the experience something everyone can enjoy.

Get booked in as we have limited availability on this route over the Winter period.
