Have you ever heard of the Blue Carbuncle? Dr John Watson sure hadn’t, until one evening when he happened to witness a very curious assault in Hyde Park and suddenly found himself to be in possession of the precious blue jewel. Luckily, he could turn to Sherlock Holmes - detective extraordinaire - for help.

Dr John Watson will be at your service in this self-guided audio walking tour. He has heard rumours that you aspire to become a detective and is ready to put you to the final test. He will tell you the story of the Blue Carbuncle, take you to the locations in London where the story takes place and help you through some serious puzzle-solving detective work.

This StoryTour, based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle”, will guide you from Hyde Park to the Sherlock Holmes statue and museum in the iconic Baker Street. During your walk you will be using your skills of deduction and you will feel the pulse of London.

The tour includes stops at iconic landmarks and clues will be hidden in your surroundings. Through sound, images, and intriguing puzzles you will soon be on the tail of the culprit who stole the blue jewel. Once you have finished this tour and solved the case of the Blue Carbuncle you will be ready to call yourself an accomplished detective.

This walking tour is perfect for audio book and puzzle game fans, as well as those who want to go sightseeing in London in a fun and flexible manner.
