Embark on a self-guided treasure hunt for a fun and unique way to explore Manchester. Receive messages to a phone from Captain Bess, a snarky pirate testing out new recruits to join her ship. Travel Captain Bess's carefully designed route through the city. Follow the treasure maps to get to the right place, then try to decipher the clue. Search high and low for the answer and see hidden sights usually missed by tourists. Ask for a hint to continue the journey through the city if the clues get too tough. Begin outside Piccadilly Station and sneak along peaceful canal paths and smaller streets, passing hidden gardens and magnificent squares.

Know before you go

  • A ticket is required for each participant.
  • 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
  • The game time depends on how quickly you complete the hunt, with the average between 1½ - 2½ hours. You will cover around 2½ miles and the route is step-free.
  • For larger groups, multiple games (to split the group) can be played 5 minutes apart.

It was great fun as an adventure through the city and very accessible! The only downside is that we don't learn enough about the city....
