About this app

- New route and script for Chapter 02 to avoid blocked roads.
- improved audio playback system

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 kow. 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.

It is so much more than words can describe. Lose yourself in London and in yourself. The soundtrack is immersive and powerful. The story simple and captivating. If you are in London for a couple of days, or a lifetime, this app is essential. Try it and love it. Also, for all the photographers out there, it gives the opportunity to find hidden alleys and streets that you wouldn't find normally.
