Attraction Information

Can your family solve the mystery?! This detective mystery treasure hunt begins at the Mercury Theatre, and will soon have you hunting high and low through the streets of Colchester for mind-twisting clues! You'll see the incredible architecture of a Roman castle, explore a street of 17th-century cottages, and roam along the rippling riverside. But there's more than sightseeing at stake on this case..
The story goes that archaeologists at the British Museum were devastated to find that their top Roman specialist, Ivor Togaron, had met his fate in the local library. Before his unfortunate end, Ivor had suspected a treasure hunter was after his archaeological treasures, and so cleverly left clues dotted around the city. Can your family solve the sneaky clues and identify the greedy perpetrator, or will they get away with their dastardly crime?
