Attraction Information

On the Ilfracombe Mystery Treasure Trail, thinking caps are going to double up as deerstalkers as you channel your inner Sherlock!

Begin by downloading your trail PDF. It’s filled with clues to guide you and is instantly accessible for trailing fun. Simply keep an eye out for a sunny day and step out of the door - easy peasy. Also, with the thrill of the chase, kids won’t even realise how far they’ve walked!

The route should take around 2 hours to complete so leaving plenty of time to see the sights. As you search for clues hidden on statues and signposts, have a nosy at the Landmark Theatre or see what goes on at Ilfracombe Quay. Then, if you’re up to it, climb Capstone Hill for one lovely view of the area. You could even tuck into a picnic at the top.
