Get to know London in a fun way!

Once you’ve read Time Trap, you can bring the story to life, by following the Time Trap Trail. The Trail is a self-guided walk, which features London locations in the book. You’ll get to see parts of the capital, few might know, and it may enhance your knowledge of getting around the city. (I recommend you go with an adult to be on the safe side, but make sure they’ve read it too, as I explain the locations related to the story) 

By following in Jamie’s and Todd’s footsteps, you’ll get to see the British Museum, the Holton gang’s hideout, which was in the vicinity of Seven Dials, an area once associated with crime and poverty, the magnificent St Paul’s Cathedral and other places of interest. 

But not just anyone can go on the Trail; you will have to answer a question connected to the story to gain access. So read the book, unlock the code and embark on the adventure of the Time Trap Trail. 

Here's me below, when I accompanied the pupils of Highlands Primary School, on the Trail. Notice they're all wearing their "I'm on the Time Trap Trail" baseball caps. It was a great day.

Take a look at the map, too, all the locations are there.

Happy reading and sight-seeing!






ONCE YOU COMPLETE THE TRAIL AND EMAIL ME THE CORRECT ANSWERS, I WILL DOWNLOAD TO YOU THE PERSONALISED CERTIFICATE!

I think you'll find that the photo you have designated as Manette Street (previously Rose Street) Soho, is actually not the back of the Pillars of Hercules, but the Oxford Arms, which a little rudimentary research would have shown.

Perhaps you were quite aware of this misinformation and used this picture as it has a similar look, as no other images were available of that particular site. It might be nice to mention this somewhere on your page? Your other information is credible (I have researched this area in depth myself) so it seems a shame to use an image that is not.

Thank you Mr Anonymous, I have addressed your observations, which I thank you for. Pity you had to hide in obscurity, we could have discussed it properly.
And strange you put your comment on the wrong page.
