We couldn’t find you ! We went to the Hackney Farm no one there

November 13, 2021

This was a really interesting tour to do with some interesting information. It's unfortunate that the tour advertises as starting at 11am, however your very first venue to find the first clue doesn't actually open till 12, and the clue is no longer there. It's an easy walk, and was manageable with a wheelchair user, although the wheelchair couldn't access one of rhe clues. There were a few occasions where we were in the right location but struggled to find the actual thing we were looking for, so hints other than the GPS location would have been helpful. Also, after entering the last clue, it ends the 'quiz' without giving any information about the clue you've found. If your already familiar with the hackney and shoreditch areas, or are looking for something that isn't heavily focused on the street art, this is a great tour to do
