Have you ever heard of the Blue Carbuncle? Dr John Watson sure hadn’t, until one evening when he happened to witness a very curious assault in Hyde Park. Suddenly, he found himself to be in possession of the carbuncle; a precious blue jewel. As a result, he had to turn to Sherlock Holmes, detective extraordinaire, for help.

Dr John Watson will be at your service in this self-guided audio walking tour. He has heard rumours that you aspire to become a detective and is ready to put you to the final test. Dr Watson will tell you the story of the Blue Carbuncle, take you to the locations in London where the story takes place and help you through some serious puzzle-solving detective work!
