Huntfun is a treasure-hunt style activity that will take you on a unique journey through Birmingham.
Thereís a unique adventure in Birmingham that is not only great for families, but one that will take you on a journey through the city streets and to some of our biggest local attractions.
Huntfun Birmingham is a treasure-trail style adventure in which families and groups are provided with a starting point and clues to a mystery - you must solve the clues along the way to complete the trail!

So how does it work? Once you have the starting point, you are provided with a map and simple, easy to follow directions. The answers can be found around the city and might be located on a building, or a statue for example.
There are other little tasks to complete and photo opportunities, and the aim is to gain as many points as you can by answering the clues and completing the given tasks. While there isnít any real treasure at the end of the hunt, there are personalised certificates!

The printable treasure maps can be easily downloaded from the Huntfun website. Simply buy the printed booklet online and it will be delivered to you, or you can buy and download the hunt and print it at home. The other option is to buy the GPS Treasure Hunt, which are designed to work on phones and tablets and you work off your device, but you will need to make sure the device is compatible before you buy!
You will take a self-guided tour of the city and past famous sites such as Birmingham Cathedral, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the Bull Ring. The trails are wheelchair and pushchair friendly and take roughly one to two hours to complete.

Huntfun is an amazing way to see the city and you are guaranteed to learn something new about Birmingham! They can be done at any time of the year - simply wrap up warm in winter and slap on the sun cream in summer and off you go.
There are two types of hunts - the pre-written hunts and personalised hunts. The pre-written ones are those that you can simply download from the website and go, whereas the personalised hunts have the option to add a message or title such as ĎThe Sorby Family Halloween Treasure Huntí, which is pretty cool!
The printed hunts start from just £5.99, while the downloadable hunt starts from £8 for one adult and child, although there are additional costs for extra adults and children.
There are over 200 hunts available throughout the UK and they also do gift vouchers, making them a unique gift experience for friends and family!
Huntfun is a fantastic, family-friendly activity that can be done all year round and even at short notice. It is a great way to get out and about with the kids and learn so much more about the city. You can download and order your Huntfun treasure trail here.
