Attraction Information

Crime is blighting the streets of Colchester and they’re calling out for answers! Can you crack The Colchester Mystery Treasure Trail?

A super spy is nothing without their tools and yours come in the form of an instantly downloadable PDF. This gives you a set route to navigate and a series of clues to solve, leading you to signs, plaques and landmarks all over the town and ever closer to the truth...

With your tech ready to go, take to the trail near the Mercury Theatre. From here a keen nose for clues will bring you to an actual  Norman castle and through the lovely surrounding grounds. The course is approximately 2.5 miles long and takes 2 hours to complete, but history heads won’t miss a chance to duel atop the Keep or walk past cobbled lanes of 17th-century cottages.
