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.

For all those Vampire lovers out there, this is the perfect Trail for you! Showing you the sites of Whitby that featured in the novel Dracula, this is one Trail shouldn't be tackled alone or after dark"¦.
This Trail is not marked as wheelchair or pushchair friendly as the route follows pavements and footpaths throughout, with cobbles, some steep inclines and a lot of steps (199 of them!).
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that there are very few green spaces and you may need to keep your pup on a lead throughout.
The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Marina Back on Langbourne Road, just a five minute walk away.
There are some fantastic events in Whitby's calendar, including the Regatta and Winterfest. You may find that during these events, some of the Clues may become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Whitby Visitor Information.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning and end of the Trail and the route passes several pubs, restaurants and a few cafes along the way.
Why not make a day of it and visit the famous Whitby Abbey or continue the fright-fest with a trip to The Dracula Experience! You could even try one of our other Whitby Trails to learn more of this town's interesting history.
