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...
This route is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs, although expect to negotiate some cobbles.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is a busy city centre, so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
The closest long stay pay and display car parks to the Trail start point are the Westgate car parks (LN1 3BG), just a five-minute walk away.
There are some fantastic events in Lincoln's calendar, all of which are fantastic times to visit this beautiful city. However, you may find that 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 Lincoln Visitor Information.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning of the Trail, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way.
Why not make a day of it and visit the stunning Lincoln Cathedral and incredible Lincoln Castle (home to one of the last surviving copies of the Magna Carta!)? Or maybe you could spend your afternoon strolling around the tranquil John Dawber Gardens - it's a great picnic spot!
