Have you heard the expression "Carry Coals to Newcastle"? It is symbolic of something superfluous, because there is more than enough coal in the region in the north of England. This is how the city became an important center of industrialization in Great Britain. Although coal may be boring, the city is anything but. It is one of the liveliest metropolises in England and has plenty of culture to offer alongside its history. A scavenger hunt in Newcastle is the perfect way to explore the soul of the city and discover famous sights as well as hidden places.

Master a scavenger hunt in Newcastle as a team

Want to explore the city off the beaten track? Then set off on an exciting scavenger hunt in Newcastle as a team. Supported by our app, you'll wander through the streets, past numerous sights and always with your mission in mind. From station to station, you'll puzzle your way through tricky tasks, learn lots of interesting facts about the region and experience success together as a team.

Would you like to go on a Newcastle scavenger hunt? Then get your tickets, charge your smartphones and head to the starting point of the Newcastle scavenger hunt. Once you're there, log into the app and you'll be right in the middle of the game. One of you will be the team leader, who will navigate you through the city with the help of our GPS navigation. The other members of your group each take on an individual special role, for example as an architect, photographer or trivia king. There are also tasks on your smartphone. There are also numerous challenges waiting for you to solve at the stations scattered throughout the city. Choose your answers carefully: every correct solution earns you points for our leaderboard - and every mistake costs you valuable rewards.

Discover sights in Newcastle on the scavenger hunt

As you go on a scavenger hunt together in Newcastle, you will come across various landmarks in the city. One of the most famous sights is the Grey Monument. It was erected in the middle of the city and commemorates the aristocratic reformer Charles Grey, who, among other things, abolished slavery in the kingdom. Grey Street, which adjoins the monument, is also named after him and is an ideal place for shopping and an afternoon tea after the scavenger hunt.

Many sights also tell something about the history of the city, such as "The Castle". The medieval fortification, which is not far from the city center, was built in the 11th century and explains the word "castle" in "Newcastle". There was already a Roman fortress on the same site, the remains of which were built over in the Middle Ages. The castle was once the scene of armed conflicts between the English and Scots and an important fortress during the English Civil War. Fortunately, things are much more peaceful today and there is a historical museum on site. When you visit the castle, take a look down on the town from the tower. If you fall in love with the historic walls, you can even get married there.

Art and culture to round off your scavenger hunt in Newcastle

Back down in the city, there are more discoveries to be made around your Newcastle scavenger hunt. For those interested in culture, the Theatre Royal is certainly one of the most important attractions in the city. The building itself, which dates back to the early 19th century, is worth seeing. Even more spectacular are the performances that can be seen here. The spectrum ranges from classical music to modern comedy. There are also numerous pubs and restaurants around the theater. If you are looking for a cozy bar to celebrate your experiences on the scavenger hunt in Newcastle, you are sure to find one. Tip: Your memories will be particularly vivid if you look at the pictures taken on the scavenger hunt together. We will save photos that you took during the tasks in a private gallery for you. 

Families can also take a trip to Jesmond Dene Park. The lovingly landscaped park is known for its flowering trees and plants and is also home to a petting zoo. In the neighboring Jesmond, you will find some splendid hotels and trendy restaurants. If, on the other hand, you simply want to take a stroll, then wander down to the Tyne. The river offers some beautiful riverside promenades and spectacular bridges.
