Get ready to shout loud and proud about the place you call home!
From bizarre benches to magical murals, obscure oddities to strange stories, every corner of the UK has its hidden treasures and tales to tell.
We always try to bring you the best of these via our Trail routes, Clues and fact snippets. But we know there’s so much more out there that only those who live in a place will know about.
That’s why, over the next few weeks, we want YOU to show us all the reasons that you Love Where You Live, by seeking out and sharing your local wonders, quirks and curiosities!
What Do I Need to Do?
Each week, we’ll set you a new task to complete. We’ll ask you to head out and discover a new aspect of your local area or share your local knowledge.
We’ll select our favourites to feature on the website, and all featured will receive:
- The kudos of being a TT #LoveWhereYouLive Ambassador for your location.
- Your next Trail adventure on us.
- The chance to win the awesome weekly star prize!
So, get your thinking caps on, take a look at our MISSIONS and start clocking and photographing any local quirks and treasures when you’re next out and about!
Each MISSION will run for a limited time only, so we’ll let you know when each is open for submissions, and you’ll also find out about that all-important star prize!
MISSION FIVE is Now Live!
Your fifth MISSION is to go off in search of the silly signs in your area. Whether it’s road signs that point to nowhere or make no sense, directions to secret places (that aren’t so secret any more), pointless plaques or punny shop names, or any other curious and confusing signs that have made you stop in your tracks, your assignment is to seek it out down your way!
All submissions featured on our Silly Signs blog will receive a Treasure Trails voucher. PLUS, our top pick will be awarded the MISSION FOUR Star Prize:
A year’s subscription (print or digital) to one of the following magazines of your choice: MMM, Campervan, Caravan, Camping or What Motorhome, thanks to our friends at Warner’s Group.
PLUS a 3 x Treasure Trail bundle to enjoy on your next UK staycation adventure!
You’ve got until 11:59pm on Wednesday 2nd December to submit the signs that make you go ‘ha!’ or ‘huh?’, so don’t hang around!
What’s Coming Up?
MISSION #06: Not a lot of people know this but… tucked away treasures or facts!
Your final MISSION, including details of what to do and how to submit your entries, will be on its way to your inbox and our social pages on Thursday 3rd December.
Keep those eyes peeled and get ready to wow us when you show off why you #LoveWhereYouLive!
A Dash of Inspiration
If you’re stuck for ideas and need a little dash of inspiration while planning your upcoming MISSIONS, we’re here to help! Grab your local Treasure Trail, gather your household together and start exploring the hidden gems in your hometown today.
Whatever you’ve got coming up in the next few weeks, add an adventure to your to-do list.
“We love Treasure Trails! Been our go to socially-distanced activity of the year, including one for my husband’s birthday day out and one for my son’s birthday day out. Keep them coming!”Diane – Rochdale
Happy Trailing, and we’ll see you on your next #LoveWhereYouLive MISSION very soon!
