About the event

In this new twist on a scavenger hunt, you'll explore this exciting city while unravelling a series of clues sent to your mobile phone. You'll receive your first text with directions to a new location and a clue to crack. When you reply with the correct answer you'll be sent your next picture clue. Up to 4 phones or web-enabled tablets can be used per quest, so why not split into teams and turn it into a competition to see who can be the first to make it to Covent Garden? Technically your team can be as big as you want, but we recommend up to 4 people for the optimum experience.


You'll start your quest in the legendary Leicester Square and then, using your detective skills to solve image-based puzzles and clues you'll travel along Shaftesbury Avenue and then wiggle your way through the West End before finishing in vibrant Covent Garden. Don't worry if you get stuck on a clue - you'll be in contact with a team member. There's no time restriction, so you can either go as fast as you can and race to the finish, or take as long as you'd like and amble around Theatreland.


Younger kids can take part in the quest as the clues are fairly straightforward, but you might need to search carefully for the answers. If you're in the mood for something a little trickier, why not try out the London Bridges Text Quest instead?
