Want an activity that’ll make the culture vultures and the party princesses happy at the same time? Spring the Oxford Pub Treasure Hunt on them! Why do bog standard sightseeing when you can mix it up with some fun?
The pub treasure hunt is what happens when you combine a pub quiz, sightseeing and a scavenger hunt. Keeping all the girls on the hen weekend entertained during the daylight hours can be a tough task. The party girls don’t want to spend hours walking around the city looking at landmarks, while the culture chicks want to be out experiencing history instead of downing cocktails all day. Give them the best of both worlds. You’ll need an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet. This is a self-run activity, so you can do it at your leisure - so no getting out of bed at the crack of dawn!
When you’re ready to kick things off, get the girls around. Split up into teams, take your team pic and upload it to the app. That’ll get the clock started! Answer pub trivia questions that’ll lead you to the Bodleian Library, play pub games that’ll take you round the Radcliffe Camera and do a top notch selfie challenge at Oxford Castle. On the way to all the big landmarks, there will be plenty of stops at the local pubs. After all, this city has dozens of ‘em it would be criminal not to pop into a few!
Keep an eye on the leaderboard though. Stopping off for one too many cocktails might let the other team take the advantage! There’s a live leaderboard to let you know where the other team is an who’s leading the charge round the city. At the end of the hunt your hen party will be quite squiffy, in the mood to keep the party pumping into the evening and your task at bonding them will be complete. Win!
