As the legend goes, on 12th August 1812, the cream of Georgian society were invited to the city of Bath to attend the grandest social event of the decade; the Prince Regent’s 50th birthday party. As a centrepiece for this lavish party, the Mayor of Bath planned to present a very special birthday gift to the Prince; a priceless golden statue that had recently been uncovered beneath the city’s ancient streets. However on the night of the party, as the Mayor removed the veil, onlookers were stunned to see that the statue had been stolen, and replaced by a humble cabbage!

On your adventure you must track down the clues, solve a range of cryptic puzzles hidden in the historic streets of Bath, and finally uncover the hidden resting place of the priceless golden statue.

Each activity booklet contains:- 16 cryptic clues to solve at a variety of locations throughout the historic centre of Bath.- True local history stories for each location.- A unique mystery story which gradually unfolds as you progress through your adventure!
