The Search for Great Britain’s Best Riddle Breaker
Do you think you’ve got what it takes to become Britain’s best riddle breaker? The team here at Cofton are passionate about puzzles, so we’ve come together to create what we think is Britain’s most challenging series of riddles for you to crack.
Our quest; to find Great Britain’s Best Riddle Breaker – and your challenge (should you wish to accept it) is to solve our riddles for some of the UK’s most famous cities and destinations, including London, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Cardiff… and of course, our glorious corner of Devon too!
Listed below you will find five riddles for each destination, and the answers to each of these riddles in that destination will (together) give you a clue to a lesser-known hidden gem in that place. To give you an example, if the answers for the London riddles were ‘pod’, ‘wheel’ and ‘Millennium’, then the secret destination might be the London Eye. However, the actual riddles are a lot harder to crack than that!
What we want you to do is figure out each of the five riddles for each destination below and then use the answers to those riddles to work out which hidden location we are referring to in each destination. It’ll be somewhere a little off the beaten tracks in that place, rather than its most well-known landmark. However, we’re not releasing all the riddles at once; to keep it interesting, every Friday between 26th August and 23rd September we will update this page with one new riddle for each destination.
