Full description
Discover London’s fascinating history and attractions through the eyes of Charles Dickens while you solve clues around the city. Learn how Dickens went from rags to riches and explore the city by playing a quest with your friends, significant other, or family. Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions, so you won't need a map, GPS, or guide. Solve problems and guess the answers to unlock the secret story of each location. Receive all instructions via email after booking, then simply go to the starting point and begin the adventure. Play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or split into smaller groups and compete against each other. Players can also play on their own, separate from the group, and meet the group at the end of the tour.
