A murder mystery puzzle in the Regent's Park, London

The story so far...

Sherlock Holmes SilhouetteSherlock Holmes' great-great grandson Barratt has come across an old notebook belonging to his great grandfather. In it he reveals the identity of The Regent's Park Ripper, a mystery which was never solved in Sherlock's lifetime. Finally, many years later, YOU have the chance to unmask the Ripper so the truth can be known.

Can you work together to solve this mystery once and for all?

This clue-hunt and puzzle activity works as a party game or for school trips and student visits.

How it works: This is an activity for groups up to 50, working in four or more separate teams. Teams may be sub-divided into smaller units.

The activity has 3 parts: Part One is a treasure-hunt-style game played out in small teams of 5 or 6 in the Queen Mary's Gardens area of The Regent's Park, close to Baker Street in London. Part Two is a set of short mental puzzles for students to work on while resting or having a picnic lunch. Part Three takes the group up to Primrose Hill to play an English i-Spy game using the incredible view of London's skyline.

This is a ready-to-play packaged game so cannot be personalised.

Duration: Part 1 - 90 minutes, Parts 2 & 3 - 90 minutes (approx).

Recommended start location: Suggested start is at the Sherlock Holmes Museum in Baker Street or at the Bandstand in The Regent's Park (see marker below)
