Why not try one of CityDays’ classic York treasure hunts? These can be played on any day of the week and run later into the afternoon (follow the links below to find the exact time restrictions for each trail). They provide all the scenic, puzzle-filled fun of the Mystery Picnic, albeit without the tasty surprises.
There are a total of three classic games on offer, each revealing a very different side of the city:
Quirks and Snickets provides a fun and thorough tour of the city’s easy to miss and underappreciated highlights. A great way to discover gems that are lying off the beaten track.
A Fatal Feud immerses players in the mystery of an unsolved real-life 15th century murder. Will your team be able to crack the case after all these years?
The Drowned City explores the myths and legends that have shaped the city and the wider world, pitting you against ancient tricksters and fearsome monsters.
They take place over a walking distance of 4-5 km and typically take 2-3.5 hours to complete, although it is completely up to you whether you want to race to beat them more quickly, or take things at a leisurely place and not worry about time.
If you are ready for a fantastic day out in York then visit CityDays now and book a game, complete with a ‘love it or your money back’ guarantee.
