Sherlock's Challenge

Select Option


It's a game that will make use of your brain and creativity, but its also a great way to explore the city as you're being forced to actively look around you.

The puzzles are solved using permanent features of the city and you'll work out your path as you go around from one clue to the next, unravelling the story and ultimately discovering the secret behind Sherlock Holmes.

What You'll Get


This is a puzzle based treasure hunt. On arrival you will be given instructions and handed a backpack with everything you need for the game including 7 numbered envelopes with puzzles. Each puzzle is solved on a certain location and solving it will reveal the next location. The game will finish in the West End of Town. The duration varies greatly from group to group. Depending on their speed and wether or not they take a break. You will be in touch with the host via WhatsApp and so you need to bring a phone with internet access. The game follows the story of Arthur Conan Doyle's and Sherlock Holmes' background.
