Thank goodness you're here, I've been desperate for help for ages now.

Oh, but where are my manners. The name is Warrane Worthington, I'm a dark investigator; it's my job to track down the very worst crimes, spirits and tales in the land, and Warwick is a BIG culprit.

You see, this town has been trying to paint itself as this pretty picture for ages, by hiding its worst stories with tricky puzzles and passwords.

As my trainee investigator, you can help crack these codes and discover the dark truth!

The walk is entertaining and shows the different parts of Warwick. A visit in to the Lord Leycester Hospital is recommended.
