The UK is BURSTING with amazing places, people and things to do. Having a Great British adventure this summer? With Treasure Hunt Brighton you’ll see some of the best bits, and hidden gems that Brighton has to offer. Whether you’re travelling for miles or minutes, grab your shipmates and keep reading!

With so much to see in Brighton it can be hard to make sure you’re not missing out. Our routes have been cleverly designed and playtested to guide you to the best spots, from tourist highlights to local hangouts, you and your crew are sure to uncover some real treasures.

How does it work? ☠️

It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together. If you’re adventuring with a large crew, we recommend splitting into smaller groups and seeing who can solve the final clue first! (after a few refreshment breaks along the way of course!) Captain Bess, our bossy pirate leader, sends cryptic clues, and treasure maps to your phone, shipmates work together to solve the clues and discover the next part of the journey. Ages 8+ are welcome too if you want to make a family day of it!

“You can stop at any point & have a walk around where you are and the just return to the tour & pick up where you left off. We did the tour in 40mph winds & rain & still enjoyed up...I bet it’s even better on a sunny day”
