HiddenCityBased around the concept of a treasure hunt, HiddenCity offers a unique way to explore London. With a trail of curious clues sent via text message, teams are guided from famous institutions to hidden pubs and bars. There are a number of hunts to choose from including the Bright Lights Evening Trail, leading you from high to low, exploring riverside views and basement bars; the City Lights Evening Trail, delving into the city's history; and Bar Breaks, a great one for tourists with the likes of Trafalgar Square and The Mall encountered along the way. Whether you're a London expert or a first time visitor, these tours are fun for all and create the opportunity to discover hidden gems and test your local knowledge. Each trail offers a couple of pit stops along the way but feel free to add a few more to create your own pub crawl. Or, if you're feeling competitive, split into teams and race against the clock. For the complete list of hunts and entry information visit the official website.
