I bought this for my granddaughter as something to do on Halloween. We both enjoyed following the instructions and learning some interesting facts on the way. There were a couple of areas that we would not liked to have been in if it was dark as 2 women alone but otherwise was very enjoyable

This was a lovely walk through some of the back streets of the City and Whitechaple. the directions were easy to follow and the questions, whilst not always simple, could be answered with a little investigation and thought. enjoyed the subject matter whch was also informative

Enjoyed it Opportunity to walk around an area of London we wouldn't normally do, finding different sites of interest. Game was full of interesting facts and the challenges were just brain taxing enough that it kept it enjoyable.

A really enjoyable and relaxed way to discover more about this case. Much better than being in a massive group. Recommended stopping at the white hart for a pint of Guinness.

It's easy to follow, you really only need a phone, so everyone can get to know the essence of the story at their own pace :)
