Attraction Information

If you’ve ever wondered what goes BUMP in the night, you’re about to find out on The Hitchin Treasure Trail. While you search for clues don’t be surprised to hear footsteps behind you...

While supernatural forces are at work, you can turn to cold, hard tech in the form of your instantly downloadable PDF. It’s got tips to guide you and 20 tricky clues to solve; the answers to these will be hidden on landmarks around town so you’d better keep your eyes open if you dare!

Hitchin is a historic town with more than a few mysteries up its sleeves. It’s also steeped in stories of ghosts and ghouls so see if you can spot any as you travel through the Market Square and along the old-timey streets. The route itself should take around 2 hours to complete, that is if you make it back alive.
