Assassin's Creed Syndicate - Secrets of London music box guide

How to track down every music box and unlock the Aegis outfit.

Sprinkled hither and thither around the Victorian world of Assassin's Creed Syndicate are a series of pretty little music boxes just waiting to be added to your collection. There's a good reason to grab all of these items too, as once you've bagged the lot you'll be able to get your hands on the powerful Aegis outfit in Michael Reuge's Vault, while also ticking off the Godlike Achievement or Trophy - depending on your platform of choice - at the same time.

We've separated our guide to finding every last one of these music boxes into six different location categories, so you stand a better chance of methodically working your way through the list with the minimum of backtracking. You'll also be able to hear the boxes chiming away whenever you get near to them, which should help you narrow things down even more. Once you've picked them all up, make your way back to the old dig site in the City of London, and enter the Vault once more to claim your rewards.

City of London and Lambeth music boxes

3. Make your way to Cockham Merchants, then go to the building's rear and look for the next Secret of London on the roof near the railway.

4. Go to the Kenway mansion, then enter the park that's to the east. Now walk towards the gazebo and take the music box from the nearby bench.

5. Head to Herbington's Tea shop, then look for the stool that's out the front. Take the music box from it to finish up the City of London section.
