This is a self-guided tour and you can enjoy your discoveries at your own pace. Your challenge to solve 14 riddles starts at the Surrey Quays Overground Station. Each riddle takes you from one (hidden) location to the next. Along the way, you’ll unlock local recommendations and fun facts as well as the history of the city. Step back in time on a fascinating story-driven journey through this picturesque, family-friendly area’s rich nautical history. Experience its groundbreaking transformation into a blissfully tranquil modern-day neighborhood and enjoy the scenery of London’s largest remaining dock and natural beauty of its woodland. When you arrive at the breathtaking final location, you’ll be rewarded with recommendations of local hot spots. The highlights you’ll discover on this game include the beautiful Greenland Dock, riverside views of iconic Canary Wharf, the oasis that is Russia Dock Woodland, family-favorite Surrey Docks Farm, and a hidden gem with the best view of the London skyline.
