      Fabulous concept! Great fun looking up and down, finding new things and trying to beat each other at solving the clues.
    Suitable for young and old.

Very enjoyable. What a great way to walk around London. Looking for clues encourages you to look at buildings that you would otherwise have just walked past. Lots of blue plaques around, great to learn some interesting facts that you might not have seen.

Loved it. Loved the clues and the back streets it took us down. Great fun for a group to do


Rosie H

Loved seeing parts of my hometown that I’m ashamed to say I hadn’t really noticed before! Great value for money, the story and whole idea was not something I’d done before.



Great fun and a good way to discover new places. I thought you had to get the tube everywhere in London, turns out everything is much closer than I thought.



My wife and I only had one night in Liverpool and this trail ticked all the boxes, we saw all the best sights while walking leisurely around the beautiful city centre. We will be doing more of these trails for sure.



We’ve been to Nottingham many times but this trail took us to places we hadn’t visited before! Great fun.

Kids loved it. Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon with the family.
