THE SINS OF SOUTHWARK MYSTERY HUNT
Saturday 24 November
1pm at The George Inn, 77 Borough High Street; 10
suggested; booking essential contactus@hiddenwonders.co.uk
In the winding alleys and hidden gardens south of the Thames
a crime has been committed and only you can solve it. To
crack this case you'll need to explore the sinful side of
Southwark with a little help from three authors who knew it
well: Chaucer, Shakespeare and Dickens. This mystery will
take you from Shakespeare's Globe to Borough Market and
beyond in a hunt that uncovers the historic playhouses, pubs
and prostitutes that made these streets the playground of
London. Along the way you'll be faced with riddles and
puzzles aplenty. A fun adventure for the cunning, the
curious, friends and families. Team sizes from two upwards.
If you don't have a team you can join one at the start. The
hunt lasts about three hours. At the end groups are welcome
to join us for drinks at The George Inn.
