The Chester Ghosts Galore Treasure Trail starts at:
St Werburgh St
We have three super duper themed Clubs for your child to enjoy as part of their Treasure Trail experience.
Perfect for 4-8 year olds, the concept behind the Clubs is that your child will get a bundle of goodies to excite them about their forthcoming Trail experience, something to keep them entertained whilst travelling to and from the Trail, and something to be given on completion of the Trail as a keepsake.

The route isn’t friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs due to steep steps, cobbles, and hills all included in the Trail.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is a busy city centre so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Linenhall Car Park (CH1 2NX), just a 7 minute walk away. Or why not try Chester’s fantastic Park and Ride servicehttps://www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/residents/transport-and-roads/public-transport/buses/park-and-ride/park-and-ride.aspx?
There are some fantastic events in Chester’s calendarhttps://www.visitcheshire.com/whats-on/whats-on-in-chester, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful city. However, you may find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Chester Tourist Informationhttps://www.visitcheshire.com/information/contact-us.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning of the Trail (in the cathedral), as well as at clue 08, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way.
Why not make a day of it and visit Chester Zoohttps://www.chesterzoo.org/ or Grosvenor Museum to learn more twisting tales about Chester?
