The Farnham Castle & Town Treasure Trail starts at:
Middle Church Lane
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...
Farnham Castle Keep and Museum subject to opening times: 9am to 5pm weekdays, 10am to 4pm weekends. Please commence your Trail in good time (at least one and a half hours prior to closing) to be able to access the castle and its clues.
The route isn’t friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs due to steep hills and the use of steps along the way.
Bring your four-legged friends along! This is a dog-friendly Trail. Please note, the route begins in the town centre, 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 Waggon Yard (GU9 7PS), just a few minutes walk away.
There are some fantastic events in Farnham’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 Farnham Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning of the Trail and in the Central car park, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way.
