Looking for a fantastic idea for something to do in York for your Hen party? Well you have come to the right place. We create treasure hunts for all occasions, and will help you to make your hen party one to remember. You might be looking for something to do for a few hours before the big night out, or as a main event for the day, this hunt will keep you busy. Why not fill a few hours during the day with our York hen hunt, you will get a unique view of the local area and you can scout out the bars for the evening. If the hunt is the main event, there might be a few bars that are clues and you will walk past a few, if not into a couple, or a few, that’s up to you.
The York hunt will have your teams literally dashing around the city centre and in and out of a few pubs and cafes too, in order to answer questions, fulfil photo assignments and collect the shopping list items. The hunt is not for the faint hearted as you will need to chat to the locals in order to collect some of the shopping list items and you will definitely need their cooperation for some of the photo tasks too; but don’t worry, we won’t ask you do anything distasteful or sleazy.

Also throughout the hunt there will be hen photos in the headers of each of the question pages. Instruction page and scoring page: Instructions on what you are doing, where to meet back and what time for the marking. Also outlined are the scores and rules, so if you have forgotten the briefing you can check during the hunt.
- Location based Questions: The bulk of hen hunt is made up of location based questions for the team to find the photo clue and answer the relevant question. There is no need for prior knowledge of the location, in most cases it wouldn’t help anyway, all the answers that you need can be found.
- Location based photo challenges: The hen hunt also includes location based photo challenges, your team will have fun working out where the clue is and completing the challenge.
- Other photo challenges: Not all the photo challenges are location based, the team will have to use their imagination on some of the challenge. Some of the challenges will also involve members of the public. A fantastic opportunity to have some crazy photo keepsakes of the event.
- Shopping list: A list of items for the teams to find whilst they are on the hen hunt. These items will not need to be purchased if you use your imagination.
- Word Quiz: A word puzzle for the team to work out whilst on the hen hunt, these clues will keep you guessing during the whole hunt. Can’t work it out, you will have to wait till the marking session to get the answers.
- Extra challenges: Wanting to add other challenges to the hunt, let us know and so long as it’s legal and appropriate we can include it in the hunt for you.
