The Christchurch 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 is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is through a town centre, so dogs may need to be on leads.
The best place to park is at the Wick Lane Car Park (BH23 1HT) (or Bank Close, BH23 1JG) just a 2 minute walk away from the start of the Trail.
There are some fantastic events in Christchurch’s calendar: Christchurch Eventshttps://www.visit-dorset.com/explore/areas-to-visit/christchurch/events, 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 Christchurch Tourist Informationhttps://www.visit-dorset.com/visitor-information/christchurch-information-centre-p652723.
There are public toilets available towards the middle of the Trail, and the route passes several places to pick up some refreshments along the way. Alternatively, the quay makes for a lovely picnic spot!
Why not make a day of it and visit Christchurch Priory Church, or Red House Museum & Gardens to learn more twisting tales about Christchurch from the Ice Age to modern times?
