We’ve made it easy for you to get hold of your Foxtrail tickets, teaming up with one of London’s premier ticket outlets. You can now use Encore Tickets to pre-order and collect or buy your tickets on the spot.

Encore Tickets acts on behalf of some of the biggest London attractions, and we’re delighted they have joined forces with Foxtrail to promote our brilliant urban treasure trails around the capital city.

You can buy direct from the website, or from the outlets in Leicester Square, at the Cranbourne Street entrance, or at the Charing Cross Island, opposite the Garrick Theatre.

It means if you’re looking for fun in London and fancy trying out Lancelot, our first Foxtrail route, then you can simply walk up to Encore Tickets and grab your tickets.

Remember, Lancelot will get you sightseeing London in an exciting way that you’d  never thought of before. Starting around St Paul’s Cathedral, you need to find and solve clues before moving on to the next destination. In all, you’ll cover around four miles, taking up to four hours.

It’s perfect entertainment for friends and family, with teams of two to seven people taking part.

So, if you’re looking for fun in London, get in touch with Encore Tickets and ask about Foxtrail. It’s an urban treasure hunt or scavenger hunt with a twist!

Why not speak with Encore Tickets to arrange a whole day of London tourism at its best? The site has tickets for popular musicals in London, plays, dance and opera, nights out and more.

For example, in the morning you could arrange to explore London with Foxtrail. Without giving too much away, the Lancelot route takes in Borough Market, a perfect stop off for a snack and drink from the high quality cosmopolitan independent stalls.

Once you’ve perfected your detective skills and solved all the clues to finish Foxtrail successfully, treat yourself to a spot of lunch before taking in an afternoon show like Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre, Mamma Mia at the Novello, or Disney’s The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre.

And your busy day of London attractions doesn’t have to end there. Encore Tickets will help you find something different for the evening – perhaps a comedy show or a dinner and cruise along the River Thames.

Whatever you fancy doing, make sure Foxtrail heads your list of top tourist attractions in London. Completing our exciting urban treasure hunt will get you out and about in the fresh air seeing the capital from a different perspective. It will certainly work up your appetite! And don’t worry about getting stuck on one of the clues, you can always contact us for help at any time.

Get started with your planning today. Contact Encore Tickets via their website, where you can read lots of information about all the London attractions on offer. Or contact them by phone on 0207 400 1255 (or +44 207 400 1255 from abroad).

We’re thrilled that our urban treasure trail experience is supported by London and Partners, the Mayor of London’s official promotional agency.

London and Partners is a not-for-profit organisation geared towards promoting and driving jobs and visitors to the city. The Mayor understands employment rises and tourism increases if more exciting events and creative attractions get off the ground.

When Foxtrail UK was a mere cub, London and Partners offered guidance and support. This is vital for any organisation looking to start up in what could otherwise be a bureaucratic and regulatory swamp.

The Mayor’s team guided us over many hurdles, and once we were ready to open our first urban treasure trail across the city, it offered launch and practical help. Support doesn’t stop there, with the London and Partners website linking through to showcase some of the best attractions the capital has to offer. Including Foxtrail!

Visitors to our great capital city are left in no doubt about just what a huge variety of attractions and tours there are to try out.

Explore London

London and Partners sums itself up by saying its purpose is to “tell London’s story”, promoting the city across the world as a key place to work, invest, study and visit.

It operates in seven key areas, and at Foxtrail we’re interested in two of them: leisure tourism and then meetings and events.

The first one is our bread and butter, since we offer tourists, school parties and families a healthy and fun day out, with teams of two to seven people setting off on our urban treasure trails, attempting to find and solve clues leading them to the next destination. It’s a great way to explore London and get some healthy exercise!

However, we’re also a great novelty when it comes to corporate team days out in London. Corporate team building in London has become a big thing and having the Mayor’s promotional agency attracting business meetings and events to the city gives us a great platform.

Businesses recognise that while teamwork is essential for innovation and getting things done, you must work at it. Getting the team out of the office environment and into the fresh air to experience something like Foxtrail is perfect for team building.

As well as having great fun, staff will test their teamwork, observational and problem-solving skills, all while enjoying some fresh air and exploring some of London’s most iconic landmarks. Lancelot, our first trail, starts at St Paul’s Cathedral, covers around four miles, and will take up to four hours to complete. Our corporate events can even start and end with refreshments at a local hotel. Perfect for recovery!

We’re so sure everyone will love taking part that we’d be happy to have the Mayor of London himself, Mr Sadiq Khan come along to try and complete our premier Lancelot Trail.

He’d certainly enjoy seeing how his official promotional agency, London and Partners, has done so much to help Foxtrail put its mark across the city.

 

See London like never before with our first treasure trail across the capital. Solve clues and reveal hidden messages as you walk your way around some of the city’s most iconic landmarks. It’s perfect for corporate days out, school trips or just healthy (and perhaps competitive) family activities.

Our first trail is called Lancelot, and if you keep your eyes open, you shouldn’t get lost a lot. Don’t worry if you do get stuck, you can contact us for help anytime!

Lancelot starts near St Paul’s Cathedral, designed by Sir Christopher Wren to be a new landmark following the Great Fire of London in 1666. Now, you wouldn’t expect us to give away the route of our London walks, would you?

Instead, we can tell you about some of the London sites you’ll see on the way. This exciting four-mile Foxtrail walk, which will take up to four hours to complete, takes in some of the biggest London attractions.

Tower of London

Make sure you don’t lose your head looking for clues. The Tower, built by William the Conqueror in 1078 became a symbol of oppression to the people of London, seeing as it was home to the Crown Jewels and a stinking jail. If the prison wasn’t grim enough, beheadings were common, including Queens of England thanks to every executioner’s favourite King, Henry VIII.

While Tower Hill represents past glories, not far away is another place you’ll discover that offers the best of modern London.

Borough Market

This vibrant and cosmopolitan food market, all under cover, is packed with independent tradespeople selling the most delicious food and drinks. From specialist cheeses, meats and pastries, to coffee and something for the sweet-toothed, Borough Market is a perfect piece of our treasure map jigsaw. Take a breather, load up with some goodies, and soak up the atmosphere before setting off again.

River Thames

Known as Old Father Thames, the river flows through the centre of London and is crossed by iconic bridges. You’ll get up close and personal to some of them, including London Bridge, Tower Bridge and the new kid on the block, the Millennium Bridge.

Of course, London tours wouldn’t be complete without a palace. Visit London and you’ll find loads of them! On our Lancelot walk, however, you will come across one.

Winchester Palace

If the kids were expecting a Royal home, covered in gold and protected by soldiers in red tunics and tall black fur hats, they’re in for a surprise. Winchester Palace, or rather what’s left of it, used to be one of the most important buildings in medieval London, home to the bishops of Winchester. It was badly damaged by fire in 1814 but the spectacular ruins, including a stunning rose ‘window’ remain, make for fascinating exploring.

Looking for something unique and different, then look no further. Foxtrail is proud to announce the launch of its first adventure trail in London in July. This follows on from trails across Switzerland from Basel to Bern, Lugano to Lucerne, and Helsinki in Finland. We will be announcing more soon so watch this space.

Foxtrail is an immersive fun group activity which allows you to discover the hidden London whilst finding clues and activities along the way. This activity is really suited to Hens and Stag activities as it allows groups to have fun, get involved in an immersive experience and will ensure the whole group gels. (always a worry if not everyone knows each other that well).

Feeling like you would like a little bit of luxury –then add afternoon tea and a little (well maybe not that little), cocktail, champagne or a round of beers to your day at the 5 star Grange Hotel, situated in St. Pauls.

So why London?

Because it offers it all, from culture to nightlife, relaxation and fun. Here are a few more reasons why to book your all-important time in London.

  • Easy to get to for everyone.
  • There is something for everyone – culture vultures, club goes or those seeking something different.
  • London has the best pubs and clubs – too many to name and it will be difficult to choose.
  • Food – better to say what can’t you eat in London. I was going to say the World’s your oyster but then again you can have them too.
  • Now London is a city that inspires. Its multi-cultural and known for its diversity.

Have any questions – do contact us. We would love to help you celebrate your Hen and Stag do and make sure that its an event to remember.

Looking for a New and Unique Experience in London – Look No Further

So, after a year of planning we are proud to launch Foxtrail in London. Our Trail Architects have been busy planning your experience whilst the office team have been diligently contacting the various sights of London to seek collaboration and partnership. We are so happy that all our partners have been so proactive, and we are all ready to bring fun and inspiration to London.

So, what is Foxtrail? It’s a treasure hunt with a difference. It’s about being involved and having an interactive experience. It involves participants getting actively involved whilst having the opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of London. You could say that its like doing a treasure hunt as a kid. So, put down your phones (unless of course you need to text us for help with clues) and immerse yourself in the experience that is Foxtrail.

London is the World’s most visited city according to Wikipedia and for me I know exactly why. London has so much to offer and it doesn’t matter if you live in the City, work in the City or are just visiting, London delivers a different experience each and every day. It has been said that “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life” Samuel Johnson.
So, if you are looking for what to do in London a family, a couple, a group of friends or work colleagues – look no further. Let me introduce you to London’s newest attraction.

All you need are 3- 4 hours, and the desire to experience a different London. London offers culture, sights, hidden gems and Foxtrail offers you the opportunity to explore this amazing City.
We look forward to welcoming you.

All good stories start at the very beginning and so that’s where I will start.

I am a businessman and not from a tourist or travel background although both have fascinated me from an early age. My belief is that if you have a great product and deliver an exceptional service then the company will succeed and grow. At the heart of Foxtail are the values of integrity and exceptional customer service – everything we do is around delivering an inspirational experience whilst ensuring customers are having fun and making memories.

So why did I get involved in Foxtrail and set it all up in the UK? I Initially went to Switzerland with my son Jimmy – who has since joined me in this company as MD and participated in a number of the Swiss Foxtrails. This is where I have a little chuckle. It reminds me a little of Victor Kiam when he said in 1978 “When my wife bought me a Remington shaver, I was so impressed I bought the company”. I too was impressed with the Foxtrail company in Switzerland and the experience they were delivering to families, couples, groups and corporate participants. I knew I had to be involved.

Fundamentally, Foxtrail were initially involved in organising unique and innovative trails across Switzerland. This has since expanded into Helsinki, Dubai and beyond. I am convinced that the trails are just different and deliver something quite unique. The Swiss have been running trails for twenty years and are very experienced in how to make this work. (and we all know how good the Swiss are on delivering what they say they will do.) We have been working with the Swiss Trail Architect (now that’s an amazing job title), who is currently planning our first trail in London and boy does that architect have vision and imagination. Coupled with the need for planning permissions and permissions from the sights of London, we are confident that we have something very special.

So that is our story – from little acorns grow trees. We have plans for 3 trails in London and expansion across the whole of the UK. Do follow us on social media to keep in touch with our plans.

We are launching our first trail in London in July after a year of planning. I’ts so important to us to deliver an exceptional experience. We hope that you will join us on our journey.

Best Regards

Shaun Horwood.

“I’ve been walking about London for the last thirty years, and I find something fresh in it every day”. Walter Besant, on his deathbed in 1901

For me like Walter Besant, London is a city of so many faces. You only have to look at the Instagram accounts of #Londonbeautifullife , #SecretLondon and #LondonGurus to name just a few.

Our treasure hunt is aimed at discovering the City and finding hidden gems along the way.

London is one of those cities that is unique and inspires different things in different people. Some say it’s the architecture. Certainly, London’s buildings are too diverse to be characterised by any particular architectural style. On our Foxtrail, you will be able to experience the uniqueness that is London. One forgotten area of London is its Natural History. London’s Natural History Society suggest that London is “one of the worlds greenest cities with more than 40 percent green space or open water”. Among the inhabitants of London are 10,000 red foxes, so that is 16 per. every square mile. Foxes can sneak anywhere – one has been found in the filing cabinet at the Houses of Parliament. You will need to keep your wits about you to follow our trail.

London also boasts 2000 species of flowering plants and the Thames supports 120 species of fish – do keep your eyes open.

Foxtrail is designed to offer a fun, unique and inspirational experience whilst discovering London

So, if you are looking for something different and a unique way to explore London – do join us. We look forward to welcoming you.
