Go find the man in black! - Great concept and a very enjoyable day, went at our own pace and stopped at several pubs! Lovely sunny day and in the heart of the City all was beautiful & quiet. Very atmospheric and clues were not too easy but also not too difficult! Loved 🥰 looking for the Man in Black!

Challenging Fun for Dickens Fans - As a Charles Dickens fan, I found this game huge fun and a great way to explore the hidden rivers and forgotten alleyways of Clerkenwell, Mount Pleasant and Hatton Garden in Dickensian London. Amazing to think so much still exists from the chase in Oliver Twist, to the Bleak House law courts and Pickwickian taverns near Fleet Street. The app was easy to use although some of the puzzles were a bit challenging, but the clues worked and this actually made the experience even more enjoyable. A great way to combine a walk with teasing brain puzzles - for Londoners and visitors alike.
