The Great TT Staycation Tour!


COMPETITION – Win a holiday!


Summer is here, and for most of us in 2021, summer = staycation!

Here at Treasure Trails, we know of over 1000 great places to explore in the UK – well, we should, as we’ve written 1000+ Treasure Trails to explore them!

To inspire you, we’ve put together three Staycation Puzzles as part of our Great TT Staycation Tour. You’ll be virtually visiting and discovering more about UK locations while, at the same time, solving mysteries for the chance to win some fantastic prizes!

Prizes up for grabs


For our star prize, we’ve partnered up with our friends at QHotels and are thrilled to be able to offer a fantastic family break at one of their 21 four-star hotels and resorts! Awesome huh?! One lucky winner will enjoy a two-night family stay, including dinner and breakfast – yum!

Why QHotels? Well, if you’re looking for your next family adventure, each hotel and resort is only a stone’s throw away from plenty of fun family-friendly activities, and of course lots of great Treasure Trail locations!

Plus, with activity packs, family games, and milk and cookies before bed, you’ll be in lots of treats! You can check out the QHotels Quality Family Time Package here.

We’ve also got three fantastic monthly prizes to give away linked to each of the three legs of our Great TT Staycation Tour!
