For a wonderful way to get around and see parts of London you might otherwise miss, form a team and take part in one of these 'hunts'. You can be competitive and go up against another team or, as we did, just do it for fun. As a treat for my birthday, four members of our family went on the... More

Three friends and I completed the Enchanted Mirror challenge and it was a really fab day! Like all of the reviews I read before we went....it was great fun to explore London in a way we never would have before. Very well thought out and just something new and different. Really can't recommend it enough.

Have done two of these now , an excellent way of seeing parts of London you wouldn't usually see - done best as a couple or a group , you can be ultra competitive or just take your time - a really good idea

My mid teens and I have had a fabulous day exploring bits of Kensington we would likely never have found otherwise. The focus of having clues to solve was really entertaining, and some of the experiences were simply unique! Lots of lovely places to eat and drink on the way too. I would definitely recommend this if you enjoy exploring... More

I lovely day outside, no particular plans? This was a great way to spend and afternoon. A hunt around Londons attractions looking for clues all via Text Message. Although a bit of knowldege of the area is needed, me and my friends had a great time hunting around southbank, somerset house, the galleries and covent Garden looking for clues. The... More

Without giving anything away its brilliant fun and a great way to explore the city. We did it on our own but on our next trip to the city we aim to do it as teams... We anticipate much screaming, shouting and running but it'll definitely be fun. Can't recommend enough.

We did Enchanted mirror Hidden city tour with couple of friends. The trail was really fun and we enjoyed it, but the experience was spoiled but the malfunctioning system. We waited for system SMS response for over 30 mins 3 times and after calling to emergency number, we were just told to wait 15 minutes more. Seemed very unprofessional to... More

Went for the cupids conundrum hunt. Clues were fun and not too difficult, if anything they could even be a little more tricky - or maybe have difficulty options in the clues so that locals and tourists could have a pick? Go if... It's a sunny / clear day, it wouldn't be fun in the rain! You do have 28... More

I booked the Enchanted Mirror trail a few weeks ago as a date day with my husband. Having gone to university in South Kensington for four years, it was lovely to revisit some of my old favourites, but the best thing was that I got to explore some new places off the beaten track! I thought the trail was very... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
