Attraction Information

Bring your little explorers to the Dorchester Mystery Treasure Trail, where history meets mystery… They’ll have to solve a whodunit on the hoof as you tour the local sights.

It’s going to take serious spy skills to eliminate every suspect, but luckily you have tech on your side. Your route PDF is full of hot tips which will have you dashing from one location to the next looking for clues. They’re craftily disguised on local landmarks though, so ready, set, spot. At least all that eye spy on long journeys was worth it!

Dorchester is steeped in history, from its Roman Town House to the Hangman's Cottage. While the trail takes around 2 hours to complete you can spend an entire day - a week even - exploring the sights. Just be sure to pay a visit to either the Dorchester or Military Museum:  both are brilliant.
