What you'll do

Do you want to find out what famous London park was once a female leper colony, or which famous school had thieves and criminals lurking in its grounds? Then get your little grey cells ready because they will be in high demand to discover the unique places of this Treasure Hunt Tour of London. Be you a tourist or a Londoner born and bred, you won't know many of the secret places we will walk to. Solving the clues and riddles won't be easy. You will need curiosity, persistence but also a good sense of fun to get to your final destination. And on top of that, you will discover the history of this most fascinating of cities.

The walk starts once the first riddle has been solved, and will carry on this way. At each location you will have to find something, before solving the clue to the next location. At each location I will also brief you on the historical relevance of the place. All the places are within easy walking distance of each other. There is a final code at the end, solving that will get you the treasure.
Other things to note
Tours last on average between 2 and 3 hours so make sure you are warm and comfortable. Toilet breaks can be arranged along the way. You will be using the internet to do some research.

Where you'll be

I have done a lot of research on places in London with historical importance, that are very interesting yet less well known even to Londoners. They are always open to the Public but most often overlooked. To the discovery of these places I plan on adding lots of enthusiasm and imagination to make London's history come alive. Lastly the clues and riddles I have created add an element of fun and adventure.
