The Secrets of the Shields - Hunt Details

The Secrets of the Shields

Follow a trail of puzzles and riddles through the streets of Oxford to uncover an ancient mystery

Something has been stolen. A mysterious box, left for the police with a cryptic note, sets you off on a trail of clues that will lead you around the city of Oxford. But there is more to the theft than meets the eye. An ancient mystery is hidden in the shields of Oxford and you will have to uncover the secrets to recover the treasure.

Can you solve The Secrets of the Shields?

Your adventure starts outside Carfax Tower on Queen St, OX1 1ET, and finishes nearby at another central Oxford location. The total length of the trail is ~2.5 miles although you'll probably end up walking further than this as you hunt around for clues!

We think the experience is best with 2-5 people. If you have more than this why not break into multiple teams and compete for the top spot on the leaderboard?

This adventure is available during the daytime and takes you into locations which are closed out of hours. Consequently we recommend that you start no later than 2pm.

You will need to bring a pen and paper with you.
