Attraction Information

Calling all salty sea dogs and seasoned sailors! The Maidstone Treasure Hunt Trail has a fabulous - if fictional - treasure ready and waiting to be dug up.

To familiarise yourself with life as a landlubber, turn to your trail PDF. It’s packed with top tips and much like a classic parchment map will lead you to clues all over town. These will be craftily disguised on statues and signposts though so you’ll need all your piratical skills to sniff them out.

While pirates don’t typically pay much respect to time keeping, this route should take around 2 hours to complete. That means plenty of time to sightsee and stop for a picnic - just hold the grog! Maidstone is a historic spot where you could pay a visit to the museum or have a gentle stroll through the gardens of the Archbishop's Palace.
