Gourmet Food Treasure Hunt

A puzzle-filled adventure full of delicious prizes. Taste the city of York!

Follow a trail of puzzles around three of the city's best cafes, delis and bakeries, collecting picnic bits along the way. Expect historic pastries, indulgent cakes, exciting meats and cheeses, and more, all from independent, local businesses hand-picked to broadcast the city's eclectic food scene. At the same time play an escape-room style game as a team, solving clues that interact with the streets themselves to unlock fascinating facts to accompany your tasty treats. This all culminates in a beautiful garden, the perfect spot to enjoy your spoils!

Our picnic/food hunt is a great way for families, friends, workmates and anyone with a love of tasty delights to explore the city through multiple senses. It is suitable for both vegetarians and meat-lovers, and combines fun, food and local history in a way that is uniquely York. This trail has to be seen (and tasted!) to be believed.
