A cinematic walk for two people around the City of London (UK). Commissioned by the Museum of London as part of their Sherlock Holmes season, it is inspired by the mythology of Conan Doyle’s great detective.
A specially composed evocative soundtrack combined with narration guides you and a companion through city streets and narrow alleys that you may not know. This is not a historic walk or guide, instead you should imagine walking through a film, where you are the main characters.
Visit http://ahollowbody.com for full instructions before undertaking the walk. The journey begins on Paternoster Square in London, under the archway that leads to St Paul’s cathedral. It takes approximately 45minutes.

It is recommended that users connect to a WiFi network to download the app before travelling to the starting location. You need to take the walk with a companion and you will both need your own device and headphones.

The experience involves crossing over roads, exploring streets and following a set of audio guidelines on your own. During the experience you and your companion will sometimes go on separate routes. The experience is therefore not recommended for unsupervised children.

A lovely and eye-opening experience

My boyfriend and I did A Hollow Body in May 2019 and found the experience worked really well (except for the construction work near St. Bart’s, which you need to navigate around). Really well-designed, no issues at all with the audio and a really novel adventure even for long-time Londoners.

Really enjoyed this

Really enjoyed this with my wife yesterday. The story and music takes you into their little world whilst exploring some nooks around St Pauls that even I had missed... Make sure you do during daylight, lasts about 40 mins.

One of the best experiences I've ever had in London.
A template to how I'd like all guided city tours to be.
