    This is a lovely 2-hour group walk starting from vibrant Brixton, through two beautiful parks and ending in West Dulwich. From Brixton we'll head to the lovely Brockwell Park where we can explore this lovely park and the walled garden and secret passage to the hidden herb garden. We'll then head to Dulwich and explore either Dulwich Park and/or Belair Park both of which are lovely and have a nice lake. We might even get chance to see the grounds of Dulwich Picture Gallery too (depending on the pace of the group). A great way to see more of London, socialise, meet new people, try new places and get some exercise. START POINT and START TIME: 11am SHARP outside Brixton Tube station. Meet on the street outside. Come up the steps of the tube and we will be there at the top of the steps on the right hand side.

  • GROUP TREASURE HUNT: The Mysteries of Waterloo

    Festival Pier

    £10.00

    This is a fantastic, fun and challenging group treasure hunt in the streets around Waterloo and the Thames. You'll find clues located among the buildings, parks and side streets and nearby areas. The treasure hunt is aimed at adults but children over 8 will also enjoy it too and can help out. You need to be a good collaborative team player, sharp, energetic and sociable to enjoy this treasure hunt. I will divide people up in to competitive and non-competitive teams as per your preference - so if you'd like to do the treasure hunt without competing against other teams you can do so. THE PLOT: During recent building work around Waterloo, the builders found an old treasure chest but they were dishonest builders and they stole it. Lord Loo of Water has some clues and would like teams of people to work out where the treasure is so the police can retrieve it. Can you help Lord Loo of Water locate the treasure? DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP TREASURE HUNT: We will meet at 2pm at Festival Pier (which is by the Thames in front of the Southbank Centre). It is near to postcode SE1 8XZ but the postcode doesn't exactly pinpoint festival pier - so come to the Thames to find the pier. After a debrief, and maybe a couple of tips, you will be split into teams, introduced to each other and then head off as a group with the clues to locate the treasure chest. The treasure hunt is not easy so you will need your thinking caps on and your minds will need to be sharp and focused! You will be searching high and low in and around the nearby streets. If you are really stuck, help is available (as a last resort!). You will need to solve the clues as a group and hopefully the collective brains of your group will be able to find the location of the stolen treasure. There will be no group leader - you all have to work together as a team. This is an exciting and fun treasure hunt and you may see parts of central London you didn’t even know existed. It is not soooo hard that you won't be able to do it. If you chip in, think, work as a team, look high and low and use the help and tips provided on the day you'll be able to locate the treasure. But.... can you be the first team to locate it? ;) Once you have solved all the clues, and have worked out the location, you will need to Text/WhatsApp your answer to Kumar. Then your team will need to get to the pub for the winning team to be announced. *RISK WARNING* - the roads around central London are very busy so please cross all roads carefully and safely and ensure you cross at the green man where available. START POINT and TIME: We will meet at 2pm SHARP at Festival Pier (which is by the Thames in front of the Southbank Centre). It is near to postcode SE1 8XZ. I am an Indian-looking man with glasses and will be holing a Meetup sign. END POINT and TIME: You should end around 4pm at a pub near Waterloo. PUB AFTERWARDS: At the end of the treasure hunt, you will need to join your group in the pub for the winning team to be announced. You can stay in the pub (optional) for some post-treasure hunt socialising and share the experiences you have had whilst on the treasure hunt. We will be meeting at Bar Topolski,[masked] Concert Hall Approach, SE1 8XU. COST: The cost of this treasure hunt is £10 per adult (payable in cash on the day at the start of the meetup) to contribute towards the organiser's meetup fees and costs and time in arranging and planning the treasure hunt. For children under 16 the cost is £3 each. TERMS: By attending this meetup you confirm that you agree to, and accept in full, all the Terms stated at https://www.meetup.com/londonweekendwalks/pages/28491884/Terms/ I look forward to seeing you on this exciting treasure hunt!
