Through the Looking-Glass at the National Gallery

Posted on

A small but determined group of treasure hunters embarked on the quest to explore the National Gallery on Friday evening. 

The treasure hunt followed Alice’s journey Through the Looking-Glass, with clues to solve and questions to answer on the theme of things not being what they seemed.

Apollo and Neptune disguised themselves as mortals and helped build the city of Troy.

The adventure began by meeting The Red Queen at the Sainsbury wing.

After the hunt the teams met in the National Cafe for drinks, scoring and prize giving. Unfortunately, photos are banned in the National Cafe, so this one is from their webpage.

Posted on Updated on

Have you dreamt of receiving a letter telling you you’re really a witch or wizard and you’ve just been admitted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?

As Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the primary setting for the first six books in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, is a fictional British school of magic this remains a dream.

Or does it?

Huffington Post reported in 2014 that you could attend Hogwarts online.

However, for those who want a more hands on approach, Enigma Quests in London offer you the chance to graduate from the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. All it takes is passing the challenges in 60 minutes. Your team has to face obstacles and tests requiring cooperation and more than a little bravery. On your quest to becoming a witch or wizard, you’ll need all your skills to pass the exams and defeat the dark forces.

An escape room with a difference. Are you ready for the challenge?
