Scavenger Hunts

Looking for an additional activity for your Day Out in Cambridge?

You can add a scavenger hunt to any punting booking, it’s a great way to explore Cambridge City Centre in a fun (and competitive) way. The hunt is self-run and we recommend teams of 5-8 people.

Scavenger Hunts

Our scavenger hunt is based around Cambridge City centre and includes 3 question rounds, photo challenges & a collection task. We post scavenger hunt packs to you 1-2 weeks before your booking date. The packs include question sheets, maps and a pen for each time, additionally, a sealed answers envelope is included so you can mark your answers at the end of the hunt.

We suggest allowing 2 hours to complete the hunt, starting in the City Centre just off the market square. You can finish at this point or at a landmark of your choice (perhaps close to your next activity?) Just make sure all the teams know where the finishing point is!


Prices start at just £60 for 2 team packs. Additional team packs are charged at £20 each. We suggest teams of 5-8 people. Therefore for groups larger than 16-18 people, we would suggest ordering additional team packs. 

Know Before You Go

Scavenger Hunts can only be purchased in conjunction with a punting booking.

Scavenger hunts can be purchased over the phone or online via invoice. Please contact us for further information.

As the scavenger hunts are self run and posted out in advance of the booking date they are non refundable after the posting date. More information can be found here: Terms & Conditions.
