A Scavenger Race through London!

London, United Kingdom

Check local COVID-19 restrictions before booking

Experience hosted by Laurence

4 hours
Includes tickets, equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

12:00 - Teams and individuals meet.

12:10 - We collate people into teams, they strategise the best way to get the most points and we do a quick introduction, answer any questions and get them out having fun as quick as possible.

12:30 - Teams start their journey to collect the most points. Each team must choose 1 borough to explore, either North, South, East or West. Each borough is an equal travel time from the starting destination. There are also miscellaneous tasks that can be performed anywhere to earn extra points. This section lasts 4 hours, and live updates on points are provided every hour through social media.

16:30 - Teams arrive back at the same destination. 50 points are deducted for every 10 minutes that a team is late. The points are tallied up, the teams positions are announced, and the prizes are handed out. Teams then have the opportunity to socialise, discuss their routes, share photos and talk about their experience.
Other things to note
Perfect for tourists looking to discover more about London, meet new people and socialise in a fun & competitive environment. Race against the clock by completing different tasks and challenges.

I've been running scavenger hunts for 8 years and I've recently come up with a new exciting game in London. I came up with the game, after taking inspirations from games I ran throughout Europe. I decided to condense those games and provide something on a much smaller scale in London, allowing people to get off the beaten track, discover the different cultures in London, while competing in a fun and social environment. Our game is aimed specifically at tourists visiting the city of London, who are looking to discover more than the average traveller, in a fun, competitive and social environment.

Where you'll be

Guest will have the opportunity to explore Central London, as well as either Camden, West London, Shoreditch or Brixton. Camden has a real alternative, rock & roll vibe. West London is very regal and contains some of the UK's most recognisable sites. Shoreditch is very trendy, edgy and retro, with a real indie vibe. Brixton has strong Afro-Caribbean culture, combined with some of nuances of traditional London, giving is a really unique feel.

Rated 4.77 out of 5 from 13 reviews.

JUST 100% AWESOME EXPERIENCE Million thanks Laurence for the @bucketrace experience. I hope to do it again next time and will choose another location and perhaps beat my points. I will never get tired of doing it ALONE and kind of step up myself for the next location. 1 is FUN and (so much) can be done, but I can never discount the sayings: THE MORE, THE MERRIER! see you very soon. I wish you all the best and more teams and race to come! Cheers! #Lonewolf 02Aug19 Bucket Race London

Really great and fun way to see London, even for a group of locals. Exploring Shoreditch and Brick Lane as areas we don’t typically go to. Would definitely recommend... and see if you can beat our top score!

Be comfortable talking to strangers and wear good walking shoes...this is a full afternoon of hunting and it could honestly take longer if you let it. Lots of fun!

This is such a fun thing to do! Highly recommended for Londoners and visitors alike and a great idea for groups of friends to do as a team or competing teams. A wonderful way to see different areas of London and discover some of the secrets of this beautiful city. Take the challenge!

My boyfriend and I found the bucket race a little stressful at times but I think I’m to blame for that seeing I’m very competitive. We really had a lot of fun and was a great way to see the city. I will say it was a little harder than I expected but I do like a challenge. My one tip would be to play in a team of 4 or more just because we found it quite hard to play as 3( we were paired up with a stranger) because not everyone is as outgoing as others. Nonetheless Laurence was amazing and made the day a lot of fun.
