The Cardiff City Treasure Trail starts at:
Gorsedd Gardens Road
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 Trail is friendly to both wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that this is a busy city centre so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
This Trail takes you through Bute Park, which opens at 7:30am and closes 30 minutes before sunset (4:30pm in winter months) so please give yourself plenty of time to access these Clues.
There are some fantastic events in Cardiff'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 Cardiff Visitor Information.
There are toilets available in the St David's Centre and there are a myriad of cafes, restaurants, pubs and other eating establishments along the way. Bute Park makes a fantastic picnic spot if the weather is nice!
Why not make a day of it by visiting some of the fascinating attractions along the way such as the National Museum or Cardiff Castle? Or why not try one of our other Cardiff Trails to uncover more twisting tales about this amazing city?
