Discover, Play and See More on Your Nottingham Treasure Hunt


Your urban odyssey starts here!

Go beyond the well-known tales of daring and unforgiving tax rates and discover Nottingham’s hidden side, where the legacy of lace, legends and lost secrets prevail…

And that’s only the beginning. For centuries, curious minds have tried to unravel the truth about Nottingham’s history and heroes - now it’s your turn!

Our Nottingham treasure hunt gives you the chance to explore your way. Here’s how…

Get The Most Out of Your Treasure Hunt in Nottingham


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

It’s your job to uncover Nottingham’s hidden tunnel - no, really! - and venture beyond its iconic landmarks to discover 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 Nottingham treasure hunt. So if it’s history, Greek 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 Nottingham


Our Nottingham 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, and 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.

Think of the treasure in our Nottingham treasure hunt as a quest for golden nuggets of information. The only physical objects you’ll take away from our Nottingham treasure hunts are photos (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.

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 Nottingham.

Still a bit confused? Here’s how it works

Treasure Hunt Nottingham: Uncover Nottingham’s Hidden History


From Robin Hood’s noble acts of heroism to Nottingham Castle’s noble roots, Nottingham is packed with undiscovered treasures that you’ve probably never spared a glance.

On this Nottingham treasure hunt, you’ll journey through a mysterious 19th century tunnel beneath a former hunting ground and find yourself whizzing through an urban time machine that exposes the city centre like you’ve never seen it before. 

All you have to do is crack our puzzles, riddles and clues to take you there.

See More Nottingham Hidden Gems


Our Nottingham treasure hunt is a best-of-both-worlds scenario. Of course you’ll get to see legendary landmarks such as Nottingham Castle, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem and Nottingham Arboretum - but we’ll also introduce you to a few…less obvious gems.

You’ll also get the chance to find out the location of a secret booze bunker from the Second World War and see where a public execution became deadly for the crowd…
