Attraction Information

Join the hunt for treasure on the Hunt Fun Pontefract trail. It’s a great way to see the sights while getting any screen-obsessed kids out in the fresh air.

Before you get busy, grab your trail info; you can preorder a route booklet, download one at home or get a nifty interactive version for your phone. Each one is packed with prewritten clues, directions and a map, all designed to get you adventuring with ease.

A treasure hunt in Pontefract begins at the Library and Information Centre. From here there are all sorts of local landmarks to explore, from the Cornmarket to the Parish Church and Town Hall, to the delightfully titled, Buttercross. Just be sure to leave some time to see the latest exhibits at the local museum or draw swords beneath the castle battlements.
