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.

Before you set off on your awesome adventure, there are a few things you need to know...
The route is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs.
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 Moor Street (B5 5JH), although you can find cheaper parking at High Street car park (B4 7LN), just a five-minute walk away. Or why not arrive by train into Birmingham's Moor Street Station, where your adventure begins?
There are some fantastic events in Birmingham's calendar, 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 Birmingham Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available on the station platform, for those arriving by train, and inside the Bullring Shopping Centre after Clue 06. The route passes several pubs, restaurants, cafes and snack shops along the way.
This Trail is short enough to tackle in your lunch hour (if you fancy stretching your legs!). You could easily make a day of it by combining your Trail with a shopping trip at Bullring Shopping Centre or a visit to local attractions - the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is within walking distance. If you're up for another challenge, you could tackle nearby Birmingham - Venice of the North Trail!
