What is it?

Mystery City Games are a mix between a scavenger hunt, escape room, and a self-guided walking tour. It’s a bit like the Da Vinci Code – it’s about using clues hidden in the architecture of the city to solve a mystery. No app or downloads necessary – we think treasure hunts are more fun with real treasure maps, locks, and beautiful pieces. 

How It Works:

  • Head to Truckles bar in Soho to pick up a magical box containing all of the materials that you need to play: treasure map, beautiful hand crafted tools, and John Snow’s notebook – this is not an app!
  • Follow a treasure map as you explore Victorian London, discovering historic city sites and monuments such as: Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Waterloo Place, and Golden Square in the Soho neighborhood
  • Use the city’s architecture to solve puzzles while exploring and competing with your friends or family. Great for groups of friends, families with children, teams of colleagues, or a special, romantic date!
  • Learn true stories from the city’s history and Victorian London


The Story:

An epidemic of Cholera has hit Soho. In just a few days, hundreds of Londoners have been killed. Explore the city, unlock a series of mysterious boxes, and follow in the footsteps of the investigators to track down the cause of the illness and bring this outbreak to an end. It’s a great activity for all ages, visitors and locals alike. Do you have what it takes?
