City Hunt is a heritage treasure hunt that submerges you in culture, history and heritage.

Our mobile website leads players through the streets of an area, where they have to consult landmarks, plaques and signs to find answers to a series of clues. Illustrated maps are also available for families during the live events. High scorers are entered into a prize draw to win prizes sponsored by local businesses.

City Hunt was developed by Ugly Duck in 2014 for Blackfriars Stories, a series of events commissioned by Southwark Council which animated Blackfriars Road. Since then we have created 2 further iterations, Bermondsey and Elephant, which included elements of theatre and public art as well. Blackfriars and Elephant are still freely available online, albeit without prizes, on, and you can also download maps there to print at home.

City Hunt is growing. We’re developing more hunts in different areas, so watch out for a City Hunt near you.
