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 wheelchair accessible due to difficult terrain throughout the Trail. However, those with pushchairs should find it manageable.
This Trail is dog-friendly, so you can also bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that part of the Trail is along a main road, so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at the Crescent Car Park (EX32 8LE), just a one-minute walk away.
There are some fantastic events in Bude'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 Bude Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning and end of the Trail, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way.
Why not make a day of it and visit Bude Castle to learn more twisting tales about its history? Or, pack a picnic and a bucket and spade to train for your next treasure hunt down at the beach!
