The Barnard Castle Treasure Trail starts at:
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.

This is a walking Trail exploring the historic town of Barnard Castle. It follows pavements, quiet roads and paths, one across a grassy area so suitable footwear is advised. There is car parking in the centre of Barnard Castle with a long stay car park just off Newgate (DL12 8NG).
There are many places to choose from for refreshments along the Trail. The Bowes Museum has its own cafe, and there are many other excellent cafes, tea-rooms and pubs along the route. Public toilets are available during the day on Market Place.
There are also plenty of opportunities to extend your day out in Barnard Castle by visiting the castle and Bowes Museum (the Trail passes both but entrance fees are applicable).
