“A fabulous way to discover Canterbury and have loads of fun doing it!”
Hapless historian Professor Herbert Lozenge has upgraded the security of Canterbury’s historic city archive to ensure it’s well protected for future generations. The vault door is shut tight, and the lock works a treat; nothing untoward will be able to get to the precious records and artefacts that surround him. Knowing he’d never remember the complicated 12-part access code, he wrote it on a sticky note and stuck it to the outside of the door. There’s just one problem. Herbert’s on the inside!
Herbert used his lunchtime walk around the Canterbury as inspiration for the codes, but as the air in the vault gets thinner, so does his already patchy memory. Can you follow the route and text him the information he needs to open the vault door? With just a couple of hours of air left in the vault, it’s up to you to stop Herbert becoming history and being archived alive!
A glorious challenge combined with a fun and informative stroll through Canterbury’s rich history. Ideal for anyone aged 8 to 80 to discover this beautiful city and its historical highlights.
