The Bedford 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.

Before you set off on your awesome adventure, there are a few things you need to know...
Unfortunately, the route isn’t friendly for wheelchair users due to needing to climb either a hill or flight of steps at the Castle Mound, as well as some uneven terrain to trek across. However, those with light pushchairs should manage.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that dogs will need to be kept on leads while solving clues in the town centre.
There are some fantastic events in Bedford’s calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful town. 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 Bedford Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available in the Harpur Centre and at the boathouse towards the end of the Trail. The route passes several pubs and a few cafes before Clue 13, and there are some perfect picnic spots after Clue 14 at the Castle Mound or along the river.
Why not make a day of it and visit the Panacea Museum or the John Bunyan Museum to learn more twisting tales about Bedford? Plus, The Higgins Bedford always hosts fab exhibitions and activities to keep the whole family entertained.
