Ask for a hint to continue the journey through the city if the clues get too tough.  Start at the top of Bold Street and sneak along Georgian terraces and smaller streets, passing hidden gardens, delightful docks, and the stunning waterfront.

  • You will receive a weblink to open on your mobile browser. The screen layout works just like WhatsApp and is very easy to use. You don’t need to print or download anything.
  • The treasure hunt must be completed in daylight, as it’s impossible to find clues in the dark

Good way to discover Liverpool.

March 21, 2023

Really enjoyed this as a cool way to see the city. We completed it in just over 3 hours including a stop or two for coffee. The clues were well written, all doable, apart from one we couldn't get even with a hint. The app was easy to use and instructions easy to follow. It made us notice little things we would have just walked past otherwise. I recommend for anyone who likes to learn a bit of history and enjoys a walk.
