All Manor of Mystery Team Building Treasure Hunt

Unlock a centuries-old mystery with this unique team building treasure hunt. Can you reveal Lord Bainbridge’s dark secret?

Set in the grounds of your chosen venue, this outdoor team building event requires teams to solve puzzles, overcome obstacles and unpick Bainbridge’s hideous history. An excellent way to make use of an historic setting and get your team away from their desks!

How Does All Manor of Mystery Team Building Work?

To start, your whole group will be welcomed by our experienced event host. They’ll set the scene and explain the mystery that awaits you… 

The story goes that, shortly before his death in 1890, Lord Bainbridge hid a dark secret beneath a series of puzzles and clues. He believed that no-one would be able to unlock the mystery and that his reputation would be protected forever. 

…but he didn’t bank on you! Can your highly intelligent team work together to reveal the mystery and undo Bainbridge’s spell?

Your group will be split into teams of 8-10 to wander the grounds in search of Bainbridge’s challenges. Complete the challenges to give yourselves enough clues to guess his secret… but be careful because time is running out!

Every team will be given equipment for use during the day. Information, photos and the odd extra clue will be shared to keep everyone connected and engaged.

The winning team are those who successfully reveal Bainbridge’s dark secret first!


Team Building Treasure Hunt Outcomes 

A real brain teaser, this mystery can only be solved when teams work together, using lateral thinking and problem solving skills. Since it contains lots of information, teams must also manage their time well and discuss their theories to accurately assess clues and discard red herrings. 

As such, All Manor of Mystery is fabulous for enhancing the communication and reasoning skills required in any successful team. With its intriguing storyline, the tone of this event is suitable for senior leadership and client hospitality events as well as regular team building activities. 

We can also personalise this event, by making Bainbridge the founder of your company or a past employee.

A very entertaining experience... we had to make decisions and work together. And we also got a sense of achievement - I can’t draw and produced 2 decent superheroes. An excellent activity.

Many thanks to Neil and Ruth for leading our virtual team building exercise... Many laughs were had while scrambling to collect the twenty items...!!! The Murder Mystery was my favourite and my team winning was the icing on the cake. The Haka showed how uncoordinated we are but the laughs ...just proves what an enjoyable experience we all had.
