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 Trail is not friendly for wheelchairs and pushchairs due to some steep sections, a narrow footpath, steps and cobbles.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that this is a busy town centre, so dogs will need to be kept on leads. Although not part of the Trail, dogs are banned from the main part of the beach from May to September but can be taken onto the parts further south if desired.
There are a lot of car parks in Scarborough within easy walking distance from the start. However, during the summer and peak holiday periods, parking spaces can be hard to find, so the Park and Ride is often a better option to save driving around searching for an empty spot.
There are some fantastic events in Scarborough'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 Scarborough Visitor Information.
There are public toilets at the start and finish point of the Trail, as well as more towards the end of the route. Refreshment opportunities can be found towards the middle of the Trail when you are near the town centre or towards the end along the seafront.
Why not make a day of it by visiting some of the fascinating attractions along the way, such as the Luna Park Fair and Scarborough Castle? You could even challenge yourself to another Trail adventure to uncover more twisting tales about this amazing town!
