Your Sheffield Murder Mystery: A Treasure Hunt with A Twist

Sheffield treasure hunt

Our Sheffield 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 solving a murder mystery in Sheffield that has dumbfounded even the likes of Sherlock Holmes. Luckily, he’ll be playing along beside you as you scavenge the city for clues, hunting down historic sights and collecting pieces of trivia along the way. 

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

We’ve worked hard to ensure something for everyone who plays our Sheffield treasure hunt. So if it’s history, pubs, cosy cafes, weird geographical quirks or the satisfaction of solving a murder mystery you’re after - know that you’ll find it with CityDays!

A Treasure Hunt in Sheffield the CityDays Way

Sheffield treasure hunt

No queues, no hassle, no guide, no strangers. 

Your enjoyment is at the heart of what we do. That’s why we create trails that help you explore a city, have some fun and get the most out of a day out.

Take Your Time or Race Ahead: Our games have an opt-in competitive element. That means that if you answer the clues in record time, submit the best photo or take part in any of our other challenges, your team will be in with the chance to win fun prizes.

However, these are totally optional and if you want to take your time exploring the sights or nipping into cosy shops, rest stops or attractions along the way, by all means, do!

Stop and Smell The Roses: We want you to experience the best of Sheffield. That’s why we recommend pubs, cafes and bars that you can use as rest stops along the way if you want to. If you’re raring to go or have other commitments in mind, that’s fine too. You’re welcome to pause the game at any point and resume it when you’re ready.

Timings Are In Your Hands: Babysitter or train cancelled? No problem! Our games can be played at any time, although we do recommend playing during daylight hours (it’s hard to spot clues in the dark and your safety is a priority for us). 

All you need is a phone, comfy shoes and a sense of adventure: really, that’s it. If you have a good bunch of people around you, all the better. 

How Our Treasure Hunt in Sheffield Works

Sheffield-walking-tours-07

Our treasure hunt in Sheffield is self-guided and 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.

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 Sheffield.
