Had a great time doing this - at our own pace (stopping off at some of the venues to be a bit touristy... enjoying a warm day... etc.) it took just under 4 hours, but could easily have been zoomed through in half that. Clues were a mixture of challenge and straightforward, although my wife and I found different ones... More

4 of us took part in Moriarty's Game last weekend. Can't say too much without giving anything away but it was FANTASTIC! Highly recommended!

We did Moriarty's game in a group of 4, it looks like they have 2 games with higher price tags, so I can only assume these are the best and most I depth ones. All of us in the team have done various murder mystery hunts and escape rooms and we all loved this one! Its not all clues on... More

Loved the idea of tripping around London solving clues - like a locked room game but in the real world. Sadly the clues were tenuous and weak. Clues sent by text were poorly written and the main challenge was deciphering the language not actually solving the clues. Lacks excitement and reasoning. Got to see some great hidden parts of London... More

We had a lot of fun on "Moriarty's Game" last weekend. Thankfully it was a sunny day - I don't think running around the city looking for clues would have been as much fun in the rain. The clues were clever (more targeted towards a cryptic crossword puzzler, which I am not) and we managed to see parts of London... More

This was a Christmas present for my mum so we went as 4 (2 in 60s, 2 in 30s) on a Sunday afternoon in mid-March. We did the Moriarty game, which was supposedly themed but didn't really have much to do with Sherlock Holmes apart from a couple of light references. This didn't hurt our experience at all and we...

We bought Moriarty's Game as a Christmas present for a friend and played as a team of four on Saturday. To be honest, I don't think I've had a more entertaining day out in London. Not only is it an excellent way to see the city but it introduced us to places we have never visited and would never have... More

This is a great way to see neighborhoods in London. We did Moriaty's Puzzle and the game was well organised and the puzzles were on there right side of difficult. It was clearly popular and we kept running into teams throughout the day but it was only a problem once or twice. This one was also a little on the... More

My partner planned for us to do the Moriarty's Game on Valentines Day. Being someone who has never done cryptic clue games before, I was raring to go! The game took us on a clever route through London, seeing historic quieter parts of London that might not necessarily be on the map. As there was only two of us, we... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
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.
