Cambridge Treasure Hunt

Punting and Walking Treasure Hunt

Our renowned Cambridge Treasure Hunt has been designed to combine elements of entertainment and sightseeing, with sections both on and off the river.

Armed with questionnaires and maps, teams of 4 or more people tackle clues which range from the painfully cryptic to the craftily creative. The emphasis is upon enjoyment, not speed; our aim is for you to get the most out of the city. 

Contact our Bookings Team on 01223 359750 or at to organise your perfect Cambridge treasure hunt. 

Punting Treasure Hunt Quest

The first part is a self hire punt quest and an important part of the adventure. Our staff will give you punting tips to help you on your way, with the physical challenge of navigating the river being very much part of the fun.

Choose our chauffeured punt option to let one of our guides do the navigating for you.

Walking Treasure Hunt Quest

The adventure continues as you explore Cambridge city centre on foot and hunt out the answers and some great photo spots.

Cambridge Treasure Hunt Winners

The teams complete both the punt quest and walking quest. Answers are marked on return of the teams, with marks being liberally added for wit, style, artistic merit and creativity. The results will be ready soon after the last team has finished and the winners rewarded for their superior efforts with a much-deserved prize.
