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.

You must pre-book your admission to the Bolton Abbey Estate, including selecting your car park and arrival time slot in order to complete this Trail. There is an admission fee payable per car. You can pre-book at www.boltonabbey.com. (Select the Village Car Park.)
Your quest entails a series of clues clustered around the village and priory, the Cavendish Pavilion and the Strid areas of the Bolton Abbey Estate. It's a linear 3.5 mile walk to solve the Clues. Once completed you will need to bravely return back to the start, so be prepared for a full seven mile walk.
The route includes well-maintained gravel footpaths and some riverside paths which could be muddy. Whilst mainly flat, there are some steps and short steep sections.
There are ample public conveniences and refreshment opportunities along the Trail. Bolton Abbey is also ideal for enjoying a picnic along the riverside.
