Transform Glasgow Into a Treasure Trove!


Your urban odyssey starts here!

Welcome to Glasgow, Scotland’s largest and most populous city! 

Whether you live and work here or you’re just popping by, there’s no getting around the fact that Glasgow is one of the most intriguing cities in the U.K. 

Shrouded in mystery and previously neglected in favour of its ancient neighbour Edinburgh, Glasgow has had to fight for its position as a place worthy of cultural and historic exploration. 

But don’t be fooled. Although Glasgow is the younger sibling, it has its own style, personality, quirks and fascinating past. Take a peek beyond the veil and uncover Glasgow’s hidden gems and secrets by undertaking a Glasgow treasure hunt…you’ll be surprised by what you find there.

Corporate Treasure Hunts in Glasgow: Team-Building Days with A Twist

Fed up of the same old boring team-building activities?

Liven up the office with a corporate treasure hunt in Glasgow!

Get The Most Out of Your Treasure Hunt in Glasgow


Our Glasgow treasure hunt transforms you and your friends, family, colleagues or whoever into detectives, explorers and tour guides all at the same time. 

You’ll be tasked with uncovering the Empire of Smoke and venturing beyond its iconic landmarks to reveal Glasgow’s urban secrets. 

You answer the clues, you discover the secret sights and hidden gems, and it’s your team that competes for top spot on our leaderboard.

We’ve worked hard to make sure there’s something for everyone who plays our Glasgow treasure hunt. So if it’s history, mythology, pubs, cosy cafes, weird geographical quirks or just fascinating facts you’re after - know that you’ll find it with CityDays!

The Best Treasure Hunt in Glasgow

Our Glasgow scavenger hunt is 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 curate our trails so they take you around a city’s most interesting streets, landmarks, history, and introduce you to its 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 Glasgow.

Still a bit confused? Here’s how it works
