Full description
Turn the historic streets of Bath into an exciting outdoor escape room with The Mystery of the Prince's Stolen Statue. Enjoy a self-guided walking tour as you solve the clues, eliminate the suspects, and unmask the mysterious thief behind Bath's most daring robbery. The story starts on August 12, 1812, when the cream of Georgian society was invited to the city of Bath to attend the grandest social event of the decade, the Prince Regent’s 50th birthday party.

As a centerpiece for this lavish party, the mayor of Bath planned to present a very special birthday gift to the prince: a priceless golden statue that had recently been uncovered beneath the city’s ancient streets.

However, on the night of the party, as the city’s mayor removed the veil, onlookers were stunned to see that the statue had been stolen and replaced by a humble cabbage. As you solve the clues and unravel the mystery, discover Bath's hidden history, visit its most atmospheric taverns, and soak up legendary stories of the city's most notorious characters and places.

On the whole we really enjoyed this and would recommend it. We had real issues with the first clue and had to resort to Google in the end. The characters on the building are not visible and I think this might need to be updated. Otherwise, really good fun and a great way to see the city.
