The Easter Egg Cover Up!

Posted on Updated on

The latest hunt from Treasure Hunts in London will involve more than searching for blue plaques and statues. It will involve hunting the naughty Easter Bunny too.

This is a special Easter Event is run by Treasure Hunts in London and Thinking Bob.

It is a mixture of Scavenger hunt, solving clues, photo challenges, interaction with fairy tale characters and hunting eggs.

The Easter Bunny has been partying with The Knave of Hearts and has been leaving eggs scattered around London’s arts and heritage. The fairy tale world have sent their top “spin doctor” and his assistants Mary-Mary and Alice to try and sort out the mess.

 

They need your help!

 

Join the Spin Doctor and his assistants trying to locate the missing eggs. Along the way solve some clues, take photos, and complete special missions.
