A puzzle-filled exploration of the architecture, music and strange secrets that helped make Soho and Covent Garden the iconic areas they are today.

The squares hold many secrets, these are just the tip of the iceberg.
Along the way, expect to see: Waterloo Place, the National Gallery, the studio where Bohemian Rhapsody and Ziggy Stardust were recorded, the birthplace of London's early 20th century cinema scene, a 17th century hotspot for bare-knuckled boxing, plus puzzles, pubs (including one Dickens used to frequent), and plenty of surprises!
