Black Cab Challenge

Starting anywhere in London teams set off in their chauffeured Black Cab armed with a set of instructions, and cryptic clues to solve.

This event can be run for groups of 6 to 160 and working against the clock. The Cabs race around London as team members play to their strengths, solving challenges, gathering information, capturing photographs, purchasing souvenirs and working together to win the most points. The routes can be themed to include historic sites, places on a Monopoly board, Sherlock Holmes or Musical London.
