On Saturday, we went on a treasure hunt across London with our friends B and M. These are run by HiddenCity and they text you clues, which you have to solve based on your surroundings and then text back the answers. This one was called “Mind of the Maker” and it started off in Kings Cross and ended up in Islington (nearly Hackney) at a pub called the Narrowboat.
It was a bit wet (I wore my Seasalt raincoat and my wellies) but definitely worth doing. We came first for that day (2 hours 9 minutes) – my husband said that we could have done it quicker if we had run everywhere but there really is no way I am running in my wellies. As it was, it took me ten minutes to get them off.
Afterwards, we went to a tiny restaurant on Upper Street called Rok. This was utterly delicious and I got rather plastered.
