The New Brighton A Smuggler's Tale Treasure Hunt 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 route isn’t friendly for wheelchair users due to some steps and steep hills along the way, but those with light pushchairs should find it manageable.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that there may be some restrictions, so only bring your tracker dog if another member of the team is able to wait with them if needed.
The closest car park to the Trail start point is at Vale Park (CH45 1LZ), with more on-street parking nearby if full.
There are some fantastic events in New Brighton’s calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful town. While most take place inside the Floral Pavilion Theatre, you might find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access during outdoor events. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Visit Wirral.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning and end of the Trail, and at Clue 13 too. The route passes several refreshment stops and shops around Clues 10-11, and there are plenty of picnic spots to choose from.
Why not make a day of it and visit Championship Adventure Golf for a round of fun, or relax on the beach with a well-deserved post-quest ice cream? You could even hop across the water to challenge yourself to one of our Liverpool Trails and let out your inner daring detective or slippery spy!
