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 takes you through Belfast City Hall grounds, open from 10am until 8pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm until 6pm on Sunday.
The route is friendly for both wheelchair users and those with pushchairs.
Bring your four-legged friends along, but please note that they will need to be kept on a lead.
The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at NCP Montgomery Street (BT1 4NX), just a five-minute walk away.
There are some fantastic events in Belfast's calendar, including the Christmas Markets, Belfast City Marathon and St Patrick's Day celebrations, and at times, Custom House Square is used as a concert venue. 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 Belfast Visitor Information or visit Song Kick for all upcoming Custom House Square concert dates.
There are public toilets available 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 Titanic museum or spend your afternoon strolling around the Botanic Gardens? You could even challenge yourself to our Belfast Botanic Gardens Trail and let out your inner treasure seeker!
