The Bath Mystery Treasure Trail starts at:
Bath and North Somerset
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 wheelchair and pushchair friendly.
Bring your four-legged friends along, but please note that some parks may require you to keep pooches on leads.
The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Manvers Street (BA1 1JZ). However, we would suggest using one of Bath's Park and Ride services - especially during busy periods.
There are some fantastic events in Bath's calendar, including the Bath Festival, Jane Austen Festival and some amazing Christmas Markets. You may find that during these events, some of the clues may become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Bath Visitor Centre.
There are public toilets available at various points throughout the Trail, and the route passes several pubs, restaurants and a few cafes along the way.
Why not make a day of it and visit the famous Roman Baths or spend your afternoon in Jane Austen's shoes with a trip to the Jane Austen Centre, a stop for high tea and a 'constitutional' around the Georgian Garden! Or, challenge yourself to one of our other Bath Trails to uncover more twisting tales about the city!
