With Father’s day coming up, it can be hard to think of something original to get for your dad. Is it going to be another gift pack of beers with a cheesy card from Tesco? You can do better!
How about mixing it up this year with a trip into town to play Treasure Hunt Birmingham? It’s a fun way to spend some quality time with Dad, getting out the house in the (hopefully) lovely June weather.
It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together (8+ are welcome too if you want to make a family day of it).
You’ll be testing out your essential pirate skills - following treasure maps, solving cryptic clues, and looking carefully around the city to find the answers. You’ll all be led around the city by a bossy pirate character who sends messages to your phones.
Don’t worry, there’s plenty of time for ale and grog along the way if Dad rebels. We’ve planned a carefully designed route that passes some of Birmingham’s best pubs and cafes so you won’t go thirsty.
If you like to plan ahead, here’s our pick of great pubs and cafes along the route.
You’ll find some useful info for your voyage here.
What’s more, if you’re disorganised like me and you’re reading this on Sunday morning, no problem! You can book last minute, unlike all restaurants which are all booked up.
“Good fun, we really enjoyed ourselves. Solving the clues was interesting and I think there's a good mix to suit all ages. A different and fun way to see the city, it included some nice stops.”
