Detective Days Out

Are you up for a day out with a difference?

  • 2nd June 2022
Detective Days Out is an immersive outdoor experience packed with the fun of discovering Cambridge whilst solving a murder mystery. Download the app – your map for the day, follow the witness of the investigation (your local guide in disguise) and go on exploring!
You will be escorted on a thrilling journey past the city’s famous colleges, ancient churches, renowned museums and spacious parks. Each site is another puzzle.

Keep an eye on the app on your phone – the Murder Mystery Game is entwined with the walking tour route. Along the way, you’ll find hidden clues and solve a mind-bending riddle. As if you were in an Agatha Christie novel, all you have to do is collect information to ultimately deduce whodunit.

When the mystery is cracked and the city explored, it’s time to have a breather.

Stop for a meal at a place that caught your eye or picnic on the grass, visit a museum or pop down to a quirky shop you have just seen on the corner…

We know that a good day out is not complete without a hearty pub grab – turn to the app for the best gastropubs, cafes and restaurants near you and enjoy a 20% discount on food and drink.

The imposing lamppost in the centre of Parker’s Piece bears the words Reality Checkpoint – believed to be a reference to the end of the university ‘bubble’ and the beginning of the real world, aka the rest of the city.
