The Cirencester Old Town 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.

This Trail has not been marked as wheelchair friendly due stretches of the trail where pavements are very narrow as well as sections in the park with no footpath. This route would be suitable for pushchairs but please note that there is a small section of this walk that can be muddy in winter or very wet weather.
Bring your four-legged friends along!
This Trail takes you through Cirencester Park, which opens between 8am and 5pm.
The closest pay and display car park to the Trail start point is located at The Forum, however there is a maximum stay of 4 hours. We would recommend the Abbey Grounds or The Waterloo to make the most of your day.
The Phoenix Festival, held at the end of August, is a free festival that takes place in the Abbey Grounds. Although this is a fantastic time to visit Cirencester, you may find that several of the Clues will be obscured or hard to access. As a prominent market town, Cirencester is often home to markets and fayres that may make some of the Clues difficult to access. If you are unsure as to whether there is an event occurring that may hinder your Trail experience, please contact the local Tourist Information office.
There are public toilets available at The Forum and The Brewery Car Parks and the route passes several pubs, restaurants and a few cafes along the way.
Why not make a day of it and visit the Corinium museum to learn about Cirencester's fascinating heritage or take a long stroll around the parks and gardens!
