Storyline

You never knew your great-uncle, so you were surprised to receive something in his will: a dusty old polaroid camera, and a photo album with shots of Bristol. But some pictures are missing. Underneath the empty spots you can see the handwritten names of these locations.

There’s something you need to do, a note reads, people you need to help.

To understand what this mysterious relative of yours meant, you head into the city with the camera to visit the spots where the missing pictures were taken.

The walk and the quizzes were fun and enjoyable. The storyline along with the historical facts were both entertaining and informative. I got to see parts of Bristol that I didn't know existed. The parking did add 3 miles to our walk but we enjoyed that also. Very good experience.
