The brand new YORK HISTORY HUNT has launched!!
The Challenging TREASURE TRAIL (aimed at ages 12+ / adults / family groups) completely reinvents the way people explore York and its amazing history. Unlock secrets and collect codewords by solving ingenious and interactive "Escape Room" style clues around the city, embedded in its architecture, street names, statues and stories. While unravelling a colourful picture of our city's past, History Hunters win TREASURE (in the form of special discounts from three local businesses - Wildes Wine Bar and Bistro (15% discount), Charlie’s Pizzeria & The Hi Ho Club (2 for £12 cocktails (usually £7-9 each), 1 pizza and a soft drink for £10), Asgard Viking Store (10% off all pewter jewellery))!
Starting near The Minster, The Hunt takes 1-2 hours, is just £5 and is suitable for tourists and locals alike. It can be completed online via the WEB APP or as a leaflet - soon available from The Visit York Information Centre.
So go on, GET HUNTING!! (And Good Luck!)
The Hunt can be completed from dawn until dusk (when the city walls are open!)
