Attraction Information

Want to visit Barnsley with the kids but convincing them to go sightseeing is a bit of challenge? Or maybe you live in Barnsley and you think nothing in the city can surprise you anymore? Well, both of these problems have one and the same solution - the self-guided Barnsley Spy Mission Treasure Trail!

Armed with a Treasure Trail booklet, filled with clues, you and your tiny spies will go on a top secret mission to stop Dr Bea Nasty and her evil plan. As you solve the mystery of the case, you’ll get some exercise and learn about Bramley along the way.

The trail gives you flexibility - you can do it anytime you want and it takes only a couple of hours to complete. You can download the trail as PDF on the same day, or get a physical copy sent to you in the post.  You won’t get too tired out either - you’ll need to do just under 2 miles of walking to get to the bottom of the case.

  • Explore Barnsley on a 2-hour Treasure Trail
  • Solve clues to stop the villainous Dr Brea Nasty
  • Family-friendly & great value-for-money
