Magic Mystery Tour - London Fun with the Megabus #MegaMysteryBus

I think most people have used or know of the cheap and cheerful travel saviour that is Megabus. Whether ferrying yourself back to uni or off in search of a cheap weekend adventure, the wifi loaded blue and yellow chariot is often the starting point of a good time. However recently I had a different type of Megabus adventure - one with mystery and adventure whilst taking in the views of London.

The #MegaMysteryBus* evening was a bundle of silly, winter filled fun. For the boardgame fans amongst you, imagine a real life Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective. For everyone else, it was a chance to run around some of London's top tourist locations to help Sherlock Holmes solve a very important case.

The night which happened in conjunction with Search Laboratory started at the Radisson Blu Portman where we were treated to snacks and wine whilst we found out our fellow team members. Our mingling was interrupted by two policemen from Scotland Yard who briefed us on our mission and handed out packs to each group which included clue cards, evidence bags, an iPad and most importantly, a goodie bag filled with snacks to keep us energised!

I don't want to give too many details away, but the evening took about three hours and included meeting three characters, solving clues, taking very specific photos and thinking outside the box. The Megabus was key in driving us to and from several destinations and pick up points where in addition to the free wifi, we could also keep our devices charged!

It was an event where a warm coat and comfy shoes was an absolute must, as the amount of running we did certainly kept us warm in the near freezing temperatures! We came second overall in the hunt, but I think we all felt like winners when we were greeted with special guest Sid The Megabus Man at the end of the evening for a quick photo op!

Team 1! Myself, The Blonde Pond, Eboni & Ivory, Adventures Of A Nice Girl, Fay Simone, Chocolate & Lipstick and Franny Mac.

We definitely had a brilliant on our scavenger hunt,  and with fares going from just £1, Megabus can be the start of all manner of adventures. Where would your dream destination be? Don't forget to let me know in the comments.

* The MegaMysteryBus adventure was a PR freebie, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Until next time,
