He even kept a coded diary, filled with secret messages and cryptic clues, which we have now to investigate.

It was written by Timon the Toothless Pirate and he loved puzzles but something seems a little off about it.You'll explore St Katharine Docks, Aldgate, Tower Bridge.There are a variety of different puzzles, varying in difficulty


Timon the Toothless was a glorious pirate hundreds of years ago. He was known for stealing stacks of tea from a wealthy merchant. Timon and his crew drank most of it (getting high off their own supply), but he saved the best and stored it in some secret location. He did not care for a map with an X, but rather for impossible riddles. Can you outsmart him and find where he hid the tea?

pretty good, clues helpful when required, and timings very fair. would love to have confirmation/explanation of answers (maybe clues for free once solved) because a couple of times we guesstimated answers and weren’t sure why we were right!
