We had great fun working our way round Bristol trying to figure out the answers. Really good way to visit a town.

A fabulous way to spend an afternoon. Saw parts of Bristol we had never seen before and loved learning about the history and solving the clues. Looking forward to our next adventure. Pub stops were an added bonus 🍻

This is our third mystery adventure and once again it didn’t disappoint! What a perfect way to explore new cities and stumble across the most amazing places of historical interest. Bristol has a lot of hidden gems so I know you will enjoy this adventure as much as we did. And to top it off, when realising I hadn’t bought the adventure in time online, Jack advised I could “click and collect” from a very cute cafe on the day! Just perfect 🥰

My wife and I really enjoyed the self-guided tour and adventure around Bristol City centre. It was a lovely way to spend a couple hours out in the sunshine and a great way to learn parts of Bristol’s history.
