  • 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...

    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.

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.

Very well planned and definitely gets you thinking!
