The Bristol Harbourside Treasure Trail starts at:
City of Bristol
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...
Your return journey is via a short ferry crossing (small fee applies) back to the start. We would advise you to start this Trail before 3.00pm to be sure of catching a ferry back.
The route isn’t friendly for wheelchair users due to cobbled streets along the way, and needing the catch a ferry. However, those with light pushchairs should manage.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is a busy city centre so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
We recommend parking behind the building at the starting point of your Trail (outside the harbourside door of M Shed, BS1 4RN). Or why not try Bristol’s fantastic Park and Ride service?
There are some fantastic events in Bristol’s calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful city. 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 Bristol Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available towards the middle of the Trail (Clue 09) and the route passes a few places to eat along the way, or you can bring a picnic!
