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 route is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that there are a couple of clues in Holy Trinity Church grounds, where dogs are prohibited, so please only bring them along if you are with someone who can wait outside the church grounds with them.
There are some fantastic events in Stratford-upon-Avon'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 Stratford-upon-Avon Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available at the car park and between Clues 14 and 15. The route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way, but make sure you've stocked up on supplies by Clue 09! The river at the end makes a perfect picnic spot.
Why not make a day of it and take a peek inside Shakespeare's Birthplace or the Holy Trinity Church? "‹Or, you could buy a family ticket for the Butterfly Farm, Shakespeare's Schoolroom and the MAD museum!
