The Keswick Treasure Trail starts at:
Lake District National Park
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...
Unfortunately, this route is not friendly for wheelchair users due to some steep inclines, uneven surfaces and a few steps. However, those with light pushchairs should find this manageable.
Bring your four-legged friends along! This Trail is along a dog-friendly route.
The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Central Car Park (CA12 5DN) on Heads Road, just a five-minute walk away.
There are some fantastic events in Keswick's calendar, from the fantastic summer Street Theatre performances to the phenomenal Mountain Festival. Although these are great times to visit Keswick, some of the clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Keswick Visitor Information.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning and end of the Trail, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way. The lake and park areas make great picnic spots if the weather is nice!
