HiddenCity: Moriarty’s Game

Looking for a fun way to spend a few hours in London? I present to you: Moriarty’s Game. Essentially, it’s a glorified treasure hunt with mysterious clues taking you around some of the lesser known parts of London. You don’t have to be a massive Sherlock fan to have a good time, nor do you have to have an extensive knowledge of London, which was pretty good for me as I have neither.

Working as a team, myself, Sam, his mum and her husband, spent just over two hours solving clues and popping up all over central London. I don’t want to give too much away about where exactly we went, as it’s open until the 31st of March and I don’t want to ruin it for anyone that does go, but I will say that the journey started at the Royal Institute of British Architects and took us to so many beautiful places.

At Β£60 a team, Moriarty’s game is one of the more expensive options HiddenCity have right now. Β£25 is their more common price for other trails, and I will admit I have my eye on the Bright Lights Evening Trail (I love me some city nights). With Moriarty’s Game I believe you can play with a maximum of 4 people, but if your party is larger than this then you could split up and play against each other. With the others, you can play with any size group, so grab 24 of your closest friends and have an evening of clues for Β£1 each (maybe not).

I would honestly recommend Moriarty’s Game to anyone in London with a bit of free time on their hands right now. You get a few breaks for food (and a drink or two) which means you can either play competitively or at a more chilled pace. It’s a fab way of seeing London and I’ll definitely be coming back for more!

Have you ever taken part in a HiddenCity adventure?
