The premise is simple, a series of short trails around the City which is a cross between a treasure hunt and a pub quiz. Starting and finishing at London tube stations makes Crumbs City Trails easy to plan as they take you past the major sights in London. Whilst based in London for now, Crumbs has plans to expand across the country and event to the larger tourist cities of Europe.
Charly tested out the app by using it on a real first date, electing to download the trail separately they kept the competitive edge alive as they raced along the picturesque and informative route through Richmond.
An ideal way to make the most of current sunshine, Crumbs is a great way to see a different side of London.
