A Treasure Trail adventure – Here’s a great way to get the whole family outdoors – self-guided treasure trails through the winding backstreets and hidden corners of villages, towns and cities around the country.
Crack the clues along the route to unlock incredible stories from the past and solve the mystery at the end.
Treasure Trails – www.treasuretrails.co.uk – has over 1,200 locations on offer throughout the UK.
Lasting around two hours, the aim is to solve clues on a circular route of approximately two miles incorporating plaques, signs, statues, monuments, images, engravings or any other unique or quirky features found in the area.
They can be downloaded direct from the Treasure Trails website and printed immediately or sent in the post; personalised versions are also available online which can include your own photographs and text.
In London alone there are 41 different Trails to choose from. Treasure Trails create memorable, shared experiences for people of all ages. Each Trail is different but they all offer a fun way to collectively get to know a new area or provide new perspectives on places you thought you knew well,” said Treasure Trails’ Sam Willsher.
There’s a, rarely-used, SMS ‘Stuck on a Clue’ helpline to ensure no Trail ever goes unsolved and there’s also a chance to win £100 if you enter the answer to your Trail online where you can also download free certificates.
Around 85 per cent of the Trails are walking versions but there are also Cycling and Driving Trails available.
