Full description

Embark on a self-guided treasure hunt for a fun and unique way to explore Sheffield. Captain Bess will send messages to your phone. She’s a snarky pirate who’s testing out new recruits to join her ship. She’ll direct you on a carefully designed route through the city. Follow the treasure maps to get to the right place, then try to decipher the clue. Search high and low for the answer. You’ll spot things you’d never normally notice. Don’t worry, if you get stuck you can ask for a hint to help you on your way. Start at Tudor Square and stroll along the peaceful canal, the Georgian Jewelry Quarter, and the Grand Business district. Learn interesting facts and stories along the way about the things you’re spotting and dive into the history of Sheffield.
