You’re getting hungry! It’s not far off mealtime, but it’s also such a beautiful day in stunning St James’s Park that you decide to go for a walk and build up an appetite. Besides, you can’t see the Elusive Crossing so won’t be able to eat yet anyway.

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

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

Except for a couple, most of the clues are fairly simple and 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 very useful image.

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