Photo Hall of Fame 2021

2021 was a fantastic year for intrepid explorers, top detectives and daring secret agents up and down the UK. We love seeing your photos of you out on your adventures, so thank you to everyone who posted on our Facebook page, tagged us in Instagram, mentioned us on Twitter or emailed in your pics. 

Of course, they are all fantastic, but after much deliberation, we've managed to pick our favourites. So here it is: The 2021 Treasure Trails Photo Hall of Fame!

Why we love this photo: 

We love the smiling faces and seeing all ages of kids clearly having a great time on their quest! N.B. this alley is called Dog Loup. At just 45cm wide, it's the narrowest street in the North of England.

Why we love this photo: 

Everyone is counting! It's a simple yet satisfying task, especially when all 'counters' get the same total. And if they don't? Well, you all have to count again until you get it right!
