What is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacon Trail?

The trail is an experience where players visit 7 characters that have come to life from Buckingham Palace and are visiting your location on a day out. 

As you spot each of the 7 characters around your location, you can scan unique QR codes to engage with the story and answer questions to choose how it progresses. You’ll also get to learn about a different decade in Her Majesty’s 70 year reign from each character. 

Finally, you’ll also be able to engage with the characters as they come to life in AR. Once you’ve collected all 7 stamps you’ll be rewarded with the conclusion to the adventure and be able to take selfies with digital prize badges ‘pinned’ to yourself.

Test the Augmented Reality on your Device

Before setting off on the trail we advise you to try out the AR functionality of your phone. Most modern smartphones do have this capability now but there are some that still don’t support it. From a smartphone only, click on this link or scan the below QR code to try it out now.

If you don’t see a ‘see me in AR’ button on the next page then it’s likely your phone doesn’t support AR yet and you’ll need to use an alternative device for this element of the trail.

How to Scan QR Codes

Most modern phones now automatically scan QR codes simply by opening your camera app and pointing at them. If your phone doesn’t have this capability you can download an app that reads QR codes instead. Try these for Android or Apple.

How Does it Work?

The trail works by utilising contactless QR codes, without the need for players to download or sign up to anything. The trail consists of 7 story-points with embedded QR codes.
