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...
There are scheduled disruptions to Waterloo station from summer 2017 onwards due to major building works; however, we do not believe this impacts the Trail route.
The route is not marked as wheelchair friendly due to flights of steps, but those with light pushchairs should find the route manageable. The stepped sections can be avoided without losing access to clues but does require long detours.
This Trail takes you through areas where dogs are prohibited and through a very busy city centre, so we would not recommend bringing your four-legged friends along.
The start and end locations of this Trail are located at Waterloo Station.
Access may be restricted to some parts of the Trail on some days due to special events in central London. For more information on planned events, please contact London's Information Centre.
There are public toilets available at Jubilee Gardens in the middle of the Trail, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way. There are some great picnic spots along the riverside if the weather is nice!
The Trail visits the Jubilee Gardens, the Old Vic, the BFI and IMAX cinema. There are often cultural exhibitions and events in this area and licensed street performances to enjoy.
