Explore Edinburgh Sherlock style! A succession of clues and puzzles will lead you to find the truth about Sherlock Holmes and his connection to the city of Edinburgh. You will need a group of 2-5 detectives, internet access on your phone, your brain and your legs! We'll provide the specialist spy kit. The game takes an average of 2.5 hours. Less or more depending on the agility of the deduction work. It covers a good portion of the historic New Town and some other wonderful places off the tourist trail.
