As Elle Silver, you will follow a trail of puzzles and clues through the natural beauty and idyllic landscapes of Richmond Park and Petersham Meadows. 

Elle's father, a cartographer at the British Museum has disappeared but has left messages for you to unravel as you explore the secrets of this beautiful part of London. 

Some of the puzzles in this Questo are challenging and overall its rated at intermediate difficulty. 

Our other story in Richmond, 'The Princess and the Publican', may be an easier starting point if this is your first Questo. But if you have some puzzling experience and are up for the challenge, then please enjoy Elle's first adventure in the stunning locations of Richmond Park and Petersham Meadows.

  • Start from the best view in London overlooking Petersham Meadows and the River Thames.

  • Walk along the Thames riverside, through the peaceful grazing land of the Meadow and Peterham Village.

  • Enjoy the natural beauty of Richmond Park and explore Pembroke Lodge and its gardens which hold some surprising secrets. Open from early morning to dusk.

  • Pembroke Lodge gardens close when it gets dark and dogs are not usually allowed within this part of the walk.


The insistent hammering at the front door wakes you with a start.

When you come down, the police are already filing into every room of your Richmond home. You recognise Bill, your dad’s friend and fellow professor at UCL. He’s looking more awkward than usual. 

‘He’s done it this time, Elle’ he flusters, ‘You can’t just take maps from the British Museum. I know its been difficult since…’ he trails off as a police officer brushes past him carrying a computer out of the house. 

You go into the kitchen and sit at the table where you had dinner last night with your dad. You thought he was getting back to normal. 

Your eye is drawn to a postcard picture in the centre of the table that had not been there last night. It is a picture of your dad’s favourite view from Richmond Hill. You remember many happy walks starting there. 

You turn the postcard over. It’s addressed to you, with just one additional word. ‘Framed’. 
You need to work out what's going on and find your dad.

This was so fun, some clues were challenging and then very satisfying when we solved them. The walk was great, views stunning. I felt like I was in the da Vinci code solving a mystery
