City Treasure & Scavenger Hunt followed by a social drink and prizes

  • Feb 20, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for the first of this years' Treasure and Scavenger Hunt’ in and around London’s City, Shoreditch and Liverpool Street areas with a social drink at the finish.

The exact start will be the steps of the Royal Exchange close to the statue of the lone solider as seen in the picture (Top Right). The closest tube station is Bank Underground Station. This is on the Central, Northern and DLR lines.

The finish point will be provided on the night and is located close to Old Street Station (Northern line), Shoreditch High Street Station (London Overground) and Liverpool Street Station (Central Line, Circle line and others).

After the last two events in Kensington and the West End we will look to make this event a little more challenging, with additional photo challenges. So ladies and gents you might have even more excuses to kiss various policemen or firemen!

West End - November

West London - October

Don't worry if you don't have a team, we will place you in one and to make it easier for everyone we will have a flexible start time again so you can arrive and start any time between 6pm and 7.30pm. The earlier you arrive however, the more daylight you'll have and more time to rehydrate in the final destination! Everyone will have at least two hours to complete as much of the challenge as possible.

Once at the start location everyone will be grouped into teams and provided with your maps, clues and instructions. You’ll then be free to start the treasure hunt.

The event will take you through the local streets before concluding at an appropriate venue for refreshments. Other potential refreshment locations exist throughout the route and might even feature in the event.

The entry fee of £5. will be used for the prizes and to cover the printing of maps etc.

Everyone will need to be at the finish by 9.30pm

Equipment Required:

  • Digital camera or phone with a camera function, only one camera is required per team. If you don’t have one we will make sure someone in your team does.
  • Cash for drinks etc
  • Suitable shoes to walk around London in.
  • Clothing suitable for the weather conditions.
  • Sense of imagination


Weather:
We are blessed in the UK with four seasons.
But it is a shame that sometimes at least two of them can be on the same day! Coming prepared with clothing suitable for the day is always more comfortable than being cold and wet.

Meetup Status:
Many Meetup groups suffer from last minute No-Shows which can be frustrating for all.
Whilst change of plans can at times be unavoidable. All we ask of you is to take a little time to change your status on the Meetup site or simply or text the host on the day. This ensures others can take advantage of your space and prevents any waiting around at the start.

Questions:
If you have any questions please message Mike H (Event Host) directly via Meet Up
