Details

Can you break the curse of Black Shuck? Complete the research of Professor Mann by completing the puzzles to avoid the curse!

This is the first Deepdale Puzzle Room, and we are really looking forward to seeing whether our visitors and crew are up to the task of completing Professor Mann’s research by solving the puzzles.

Your team of 3 to 5 people needs to arrive just before the time slot you’ve booked. Harriet will give you an introduction to the puzzle room and how to use it.
Your team will then have 30 minutes to solve the puzzles and break the curse.

Teams who complete all the puzzles will be given a certificate of their time.
The winning time over the week will win a bottle of Black Shuck Gin from The Norfolk Sloe Company and a Deepdale camping mug for each member of the team (we can post these out to you).

Teams who fail the Halloween Puzzle Room will be cursed ... You can decide how long the curse lasts and the actual effects.

To book a time slot please contact Deepdale Visitor Information Centre, Tel: 01485 210256

The Halloween Puzzle Room is part of Deepdale Games, which are organised by Harriet, one of the lovely Deepdale Backpackers & Camping crew. Thank you to The Norfolk Sloe Company for their support with this event.

On the beautiful north Norfolk coast, approximately half way between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea.

Coasthopper Bus Service
The Coasthopper Bus Service stops at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping and is a brilliant service, running approximately every 1/2 an hour during the Summer and every hour during the Winter. The service runs both East and West along the North Norfolk Coast, stopping in most villages including King's Lynn, Hunstanton, Burnham Market, Blakeney, Sheringham and Cromer. More information on the service can be found at www.coasthopper.co.uk

Trains
The nearest train station is King's Lynn, which has direct trains from Cambridge and London King's Cross. By changing at Ely and Cambridge you can also catch trains from Stansted Airport, Peterborough and further afield. There is also a station at Sheringham, which has trains to Norwich. The Coasthopper bus service connects with trains at both King's Lynn and Sheringham. Although there are occasional restrictions, you can normally bring your bike on the train.

National Coaches
The nearest national coach station is King's Lynn, which has direct national coaches from Birmingham, Coventry and Leicester, and connects with buses from London at Peterborough. The Coasthopper bus service connects with trains at both King's Lynn and Sheringham. If you are cyclist, then trains are the best option, as you can only put folding bikes on national coaches.

Norfolk Coast Path
The Norfolk Coast Path heads both East and West along the North Norfolk Coast and can be accessed down the lane opposite Dalegate Market (next door). The path offers wonderful walking along sea walls, across boardwalks and beaches. You can link up with the Coasthopper at many points along the path. More information on the path can be found at www.nationaltrail.co.uk/peddarsway

Cycling
Most of the A149 coast road is ok to cycle and there are lots of quiet country lanes inland. From the East (Burnham Market direction), the easiest route is over Whiteway Road. From the West (Docking & King's Lynn direction), the easiest route is down Dalegate Lane. National Cycle Route No1 passes a couple of miles inland. Remember you can hire bikes from Deepdale Bike Hire.

Driving
Naturally we'd encourage you to visit by public transport, walking or cycling, but car drivers are very welcome too. We're approximately half way between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea on A149 coast road.
