Attraction Information

The Leicester Mystery Treasure Trail follows the tale of Richard III and the many mysteries surrounding his legend, so what are you waiting for?  Hook out your crown and get going!

Back in Rich’s day, the tech wasn’t quite there - luckily you won’t have that problem with an instantly downloadable PDF to guide you on your travels. It’s full to the brim with top tips leading you to clues hidden all over town. You’ll need the entire court to hunt them down though as teamwork is essential!

The trail (which should take around 1.5 hours) is made up of many spots associated with the long gone king, particularly the glorious Cathedral, Bow Bridge or the fantastically titled, The Blue Boar Inn. Just be sure to pay a visit to the Castle Gardens where your little lords and ladies can make like royalty and draw swords!
