Greenwich Cable Car Treasure Trail

A real family adventure awaits you on the Greenwich Cable Car Mission self-guided spy themed Treasure Trail. All ages from 6 to 106 can get involved in solving the clues along this Trail.

You'll explore both North Greenwich and the Royal Victoria Docks, seeking out clues on existing plaques, signs, buildings and monuments to obtain information to enter into your answer grid in order to complete your mission.

With about 1.5 miles of walking and a cable car ride in between, they estimate that the Trail will take around 2 hours.

You'll need to purchase tickets for the cable car separately but you can buy them on the day - no need to book in advance!

At the end of your mission, you can check your de-activation code online and if you're right, download a certificate to prove that you truly are great secret agents! Click here to find out more.

Greenwich park

Greenwich Park is the oldest royal park in London and one of the biggest green spaces in south-east London, so it is the perfect place to take a picnic on a sunny day. The park also has a wealth of nature within its walls, so why not bring along a bird or bug book to help you identify what is living in the park. There are numerous refreshment points and full facilities including disabled access too so it's not exactly into the wild, but has that same sort of feel once you're out there.

UP At The O2

Zip up your climb jacket. Pull on your boots. Hook up your harness. Then make your way up the south face of one of the most striking buildings in London’s skyline. Kids have to be aged eight or over, at least 1.2m tall and accompanied by an adult (at a 1:1 ratio) and it’s not overly challenging so the kids shouldn’t find it too hard. Book here for tickets.
