The Bradford 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.

The route follows pavements and footpaths throughout. Whilst the route itself is step free or has a step-free alternative, a handful of Clues require step access and therefore the Trail is marked as being suitable for pushchairs but not wheelchair users.
This is a Dog friendly trail Trail, as long as dogs are kept on leads.
Bradford is a city in the northern English county of West Yorkshire. Housed in a 19th-century mill, Bradford Industrial Museum includes exhibits on textile machinery, steam power and engineering. The National Science and Media Museum focuses on photography, film and television, and has an IMAX cinema. Lister Park has a boating lake and Cartwright Hall art gallery, with a space dedicated to local artist David Hockney.
The Trail starts in Centenary Square before exploring the 'entertainment' section around the Alhambra and National Science and Media Museum. You will then head through Little Germany before visiting the
cathedral area and then heading down into Forster Square. The route will then bring you back to finish in the city centre.
As the Trail leads you through the centre of Bradford there are lots of opportunities for refreshments in the number of cafes, pubs and restaurants along the way. There are public conveniences available in the shopping centres in the centre of Bradford.
The Trail starts outside City Hall in Centenary Square (BD1 1HZ) next to the clock tower. There is plenty of pay and display parking throughout Bradford but the Broadway Centre (BD1 1JR) is the most accessible and nearest to the start.
