A Treasure Hunt: The Quirky Side of Cambridge

Sat 19 August - Sat 30 September

Great St Mary's Church

At the meeting place, your "handler" will give you your instructions. Once received, you’ll have 75 minutes to locate a number of quirky spots in the city centre and pick up clues along the way. After making your way to the rendezvous point, you’ll be “debriefed” by a Cambridge Green Badge Guide and hear one or two fascinating facts about the places you discovered. Finally, with the clues found, will you be able to find your way to one last unusual spot?
Suitable for families, friends, couples etc. Dogs welcome. You will do this with your own group.

All you’ll need to bring is a phone/camera and a pen/pencil
