About City Hunt

Think you know your area? City Hunt is a mass-participation treasure hunt that submerges you in culture, history and heritage.

Discover your surroundings with a fun hunt. Play City Hunt in teams or on your own. It’s suitable for all ages and abilities. Whether you're new to an area or you're an old local, you're bound to discover some fantastic hidden places and quirky stories. In each hunt there are between 20 and 30 clues to solve.  Your score will be calculated by taking the average of your speed and your correct answers - so race and get as many as you can, or go slowly and solve more. 

City Hunt is produced by Ugly Duck. We use enterprise and the arts to find new uses for empty and underused spaces. Please get in touch if you’d like to find out more about our work and about City Hunt.

City Hunt was originally created as part of Southwark Council's Blackfriars Stories programme, celebrating life along the Blackfriars Mile. Now City Hunt is growing. We're developing more hunts in more areas, so watch out for a City Hunt near you.
