Co budeš dělat

This is a treasure hunt of pleasure and prudence. Once known as Fox Hall, Vauxhall was granted to the quintessentially queer king, Edward II, in the 1300s, the start of its queer history. On this treasure hunt, you will solve clues and answer questions to follow a trail that charts the transformation of Vauxhall through history. From a quiet rural village, Vauxhall was transformed to a destination defined by it's Pleasure Gardens, offering wealthy Victorians art, fashion, music and prostitution, through to the modern day, where often referred to as ‘Voho’, Vauxhall is a hub for London’s LGBTQ+ life.

On this treasure hunt you’ll uncover unique stories of brick-wielding drag queens, a butcher-boy known by night as Princess Seraphina, and the recent struggle to save a building from onslaught of the developers, and assume its rightful place in queer history for future generations to enjoy.

The walk will end at the world-famous Royal Vauxhall Tavern, where you can enjoy a drink at the iconic venue that's been graced by Princess Diana, Freddie Mercury and many more. This walk has been developed in partnership with the Museum of London and expert London guide, Nick Collinson, aka The Urban Rambler.

My name is Rob and I am a history enthusiast living in London. Having built treasure hunts around London's biggest museums, this is our first-ever outdoor treasure hunt, to show the fantastic LGBTQ+ history of Vauxhall.

I have partnered with the Museum of London and The Urban Rambler, London's best tour guide, to created puzzle-driven guided tours that walk you through the history of queer Vauxhall in a fun, educational, immersive experience.

Other night time venues include Crash and Union nightclubs, iconic pubs and the Tamesis Dock, a permanently moored barge functioning as a neighbourhood bar, live music a

I didn't particularly enjoy this activity because as a lone traveler my expectation was to meet a group of people and tour the city using clues provided by an in person host. However the scavenger hunt is 100% digital. (Maybe I misunderstood information provided in the activity description). I initially wasn't provided with the welcome email that detailed the process so that also altered my expectations when I arrived the day of the activity. The hunt was interesting and was easy to follow but there was no connection because everything was answered via an automated responding messenger app. The automatic answers even impacted the game because I gave the correct answer but it was the full name of the object and since the system is automated it told me I was wrong. Also this is definitely a spring activity since it is outdoors and it rained the whole time which prevented me from finishing. Overall I think the activity just wasn't what I expected. If I had known it was not an in person interactive experience I wouldn't have signed up. If you have a group of friends who want to get together to roam the city on a nice day then I recommend.
