The Canterbury 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.

Before you set off on your awesome adventure, there are a few things you need to know...
The Trail visits parks that close at dusk, so give yourselves plenty of time to complete these sections before setting off.
Unfortunately, this route isn't suitable for wheelchair users as you will encounter a very steep bank and some narrow bridges with step access along the way. However, those exploring with pushchairs should find this manageable.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is a busy city centre, so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
There are some fantastic events in Canterbury'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 become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Canterbury's Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available at Clues 04, 08 and 12. The route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way, as well as some great picnic opportunities!
Why not make a day of it and uncover more twisting tales of Canterbury's past by visiting Canterbury Cathedral, St Augustine's Abbey or Westgate Towers Museum? If you're up for another challenge, you could take on our Canterbury - The King's Mile Trail adventure!
