Forensic Suits At The Ready! Conrad London St. James Launches Mini-Detective Experience For The Kids
London - Conrad London St. James is calling on all budding crime solvers with the launch of their mini-detectives experience for families at the hotel. Inspired by the property's location near to New Scotland Yard, on the Victoria Embankment, Conrad London St. James is working in partnership with The Detective Project - a children's activity company themed around the science of crime solving. Run by former Scotland Yard trained detectives and Metropolitan police officers, children will learn skills such as chromatography and finger print testing, in a dedicated crime investigation room at the hotel, whilst kitted out in forensic suits which can be taken home afterwards.
During the mini-detective experience, kids will be given a series of challenges and tasks surrounding a mock crime scene. Presented with a personalised brief, children will pull on their forensic suits before learning how to uncover finger prints using professional equipment such as powdering with fibre glass brushes, magnetic strips and ink pads. In addition, the mini-detectives will be taught how to match and trace several types of shoe marks in order to unearth further evidence. Using a series of methods including light for latent prints and a ruler for visible marks, tread matches can be identified to help catch the culprit.
At the end of their time as an investigator, children will be given an evidence bag containing crime scene tape, pencil, pad and detective award as well their forensic suit to keep. After an exciting day, families can dine at the Blue Boar restaurant, complete with a Little Piglets menu, before sleeping soundly in the deeply comfortable beds at Conrad London St. James.
The Conrad London St. James 'Detective Project' experience (two hours) starts from £340. The experience is bookable through the hotel's concierge and is for residents only. The overnight 'Mini-Detective' family package is priced from £777 for two adults and two children. www.conradhotels.com/london
