The Cursed Thief - Treasure Hunt and Walk in the Cotswolds. This is a guided walking treasure hunt based in Uley. A truly unique and enjoyable activity for groups of 6 to 12 people.
The walk in more detail:
Our exciting new treasure hunt is a great group activity perfect for hens and stags, teenage birthdays, family gatherings and company team builders. Solve clues along the way, and take part in fun challenges and games.
In the once quiet Cotswold countryside an ancient Roman curse has reawakened. A curse cast nearly 2000 years ago promised `all that was stolen` to the Roman god Mercury, if the thief met his end. Mercury saw that the curse was invoked. He is still waiting to receive `all that was stolen`. His patience has worn thin…! Along the route, solve clues and riddles.
Take part in fun challenges and games to find where the Roman thief hid his spoils.
Can you track down the stolen goods and return them to Mercury, so that the curse is lifted?
