Attraction Information

Embark on a treasure hunt with the Durham 4 Kids self-guided themed Treasure Trail and keep both the kids and adults entertained!

As you follow clear directions around the fixed walking route, you'll be searching high and low for plaques and unusual features in order to answer the clues and cross off map locations on your fictional treasure map.

There's plenty to discover and learn on this short 1 mile route which takes in the main sights of Durham and points out all sorts of wonderful hidden gems.

Fun for all the family, some clues are easy to find, for others you'll need to put your heads together, meaning there's plenty to keep everyone entertained from 6 to adult!

What's more, once you've solved this treasure hunt mystery, there are 4 other Treasure Trails in Durham, so you can try your hand at solving a spy mission or being a detective for the day!

This Trail can be instantly downloaded as a PDF file for same-day-Trailing-fun, or sent out to you in the post. See Treasure Trails website for more details.
