Royal William Yard
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...
This Trail has not been marked as accessible for wheelchair users due to a large flight of stairs encountered along the route of the Trail.
Why not bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that the Yard can get very busy, so please keep your dog on a lead throughout the latter part of the Trail.
There is limited free parking available at Devil's Point Park, Admiralty Road (PL1 3RS). If this is full, you can park in the pay and display car park in the Yard itself. This car park is the closest to the Trail's start point. We would recommend a minimum of 3 hours to complete your mission, but you can always pay for longer if you wish to explore further after finishing. If you prefer, the city centre car parks are only a 25-minute walk away, and the city is available to explore further in your own time.
There is a wide range of activities available at the Yard, so you could always extend your visit if you wish to. However, you may find that some of the clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access if there are any events being held, so please plan ahead before travelling.
There are public toilets available at Clue 04 of the Trail (8.00am until 6.30pm). There are plenty of opportunities for refreshments and facilities along the latter part of the Trail from Clue 11 onwards.
Once you've completed your mission, why not take some downtime and visit some of the cafes and restaurants in the Yard? Or what about some retail therapy in the shops on offer. If you want to, you can even stay at the Yard and spend more time absorbing the details of its fascinating history. Alternatively, why not take in the scenery and enjoy the views across the River Tamar with an ice cream in hand!
