You’re getting hungry! It’s not far off mealtime, but it’s also such a beautiful day in stunning St James’s Park.

You decide to go for a walk to build up an appetite. Besides, you can’t see The Elusive Crossing anywhere, so you won’t be able to eat yet anyway!

Follow the directions, solve the clues and hopefully you’ll arrive just in time.

For every stage, there are step-by-step picture directions to swipe through at the top of the screen, with arrows showing exactly where to go. For those that prefer text, you can also read the instructions, or even use the mapping function.

Except for a couple, most of the clues are fairly simple, but the answers are all visible from the points where you'll be standing at each stage.

There's also a hint available for each puzzle (light-bulb icon in the bottom-left of the screen) which will point you in the right direction and provide a handy image.

Remember though, the journey IS the destination! So take time to enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds in this lovely part of London.
