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.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is a busy seaside town, especially in the summer, so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
The closest long stay pay and display car park is at Southwold Pier (IP18 6BN), which is where the Trail begins and ends.
There are some fantastic events in Southwold's calendar, all of which are great 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 on these occasions. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Southwold 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 sea-front and Bartholomew Green make great picnic spots if the weather is nice!
