We did the Rotherhithe treasure hunt on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We were not familiar with the area and the hunt was a great way to discover it. We met new people, learnt new things and spent an enjoyable and different afternoon. The hunt was very well organized, not too easy, but not too difficult, so we highly recommend it!
