Portsmouth: Old Portsmouth Pub and History Treasure Hunt

1. Portsmouth: Old Portsmouth Pub and History Treasure Hunt

On Horatio Nelson's last day on dry land before joining his ship to fight in the Battle of Trafalgar, he stored a valuable diamond necklace in a chest in one of Portsmouth’s many taverns for safekeeping. That night, the tavern was broken into and the necklace was stolen. You must solve the clues, eliminate suspects, and return to the scene of the crime to get to the bottom of this historic mystery. With 18 clues to solve and five pubs to discover, head off in search of the elusive diamond thief. Your adventure begins at the Grand Parade in Old Portsmouth before winding through the old streets and alleys of the old town, passing key historical sights including Portsmouth Cathedral, the Square and Round towers, the Hotwalls Studios, and Spice Island. This treasure hunt is the best way to see the key historical sights in the city, visit the most atmospheric taverns, and soak up true local stories of its most notorious characters and places. The mystery is complete when you return to the scene of the crime and catch the diamond thief who can still be found lurking somewhere in the city.

Portsmouth: Group Escape-Room Experience

2. Portsmouth: Group Escape-Room Experience

This real escape is a fun, safe, but challenging exit game that requires co-operation, lateral thinking, and plenty of brainpower. The game does not contain adult themes and is not frightening in any way, but because of the challenging nature of the puzzles it is recommended that players are aged 14 or over. The game takes around an hour to complete and it is recommended that you take part in groups of between three to six people. This experience is a great way to bond with friends and family and to test how well you get along. You’ll find out new things about people you’ve known for years, and will see how easy or hard it is for you to work together. Concentrate, combine forces, and think your way out of the escape room. This activity is perfect for students or business team-building activities, forcing you to work together towards the same goal. At the conclusion of your 1-hour experience, you'll receive a photograph to commemorate your day.

What people are saying about South East England

Thoroughly enjoyed our Old Portsmouth pub and History treasure hunt. It is great that the hunt takes you to look at little jewels of interest and gives you facts about the area in which we have lived, but not known. We were able to talk to a couple of residents who were very friendly. Standing outside the school reading about the history I suddenly became aware that it might be the wrong place to stand. We would thoroughly recommend the adventure with a couple of relaxed stops at the various pubs, alcohol not mandatory

This was very enjoyable and good fun. It was well thought out and not too heavy. We loved looking for the clues, saw some interesting historic things we would have completely missed and learnt fun historical facts. Visited some really great pubs too! Thoroughly recommended.

Fun way to pass a couple of hours and learn some bits about Portsmouth we wouldn't have otherwise. Note it was cheaper to book via TripAdvisor and Eventbrite although neither of those sites would let me book for the same day.

A very engaging couple of hours, lots of fun and lots of history. The clues were a nice mix of the difficult and simple, so even young children could join in. My teenage son was captivated.

Very well planned and definitely gets you thinking!
