Attraction Information

You’re going to need all your mystery busting skills to get around the Rambler’s Riddle. He’s planted a series of dastardly clues all over The Ambleside Mystery Treasure Trail and you’re the detective to hunt them down. Ready, set, solve!

Your greatest weapon on this self-guided trail - aside from your wits, of course - is an instantly downloadable PDF. It maps out your course for a totally ad hoc adventure with no planning required. The trail is approximately 2.2 miles long and should take over 2 hours to complete, but even super sleuths enjoy a day out! Pack a picnic and see the sights.

Your PDF will lead you past Bridge House, through Rothay Park and down the delightfully named, Peggy Hill. On your way unravel the riddles by looking for answers on signs, buildings and plaques across the town. They could be anywhere so keep those peepers peeled!
