The Windsor Town and Parks Treasure Trail starts at:
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...
This Trail takes you through the Long Walk, which opens between 7:30am and 9:00pm.
This route is not marked as friendly for wheelchairs due to lots of cobbled streets and some steps along the route; however, those with light pushchairs should find this manageable.
Bring your four-legged friends along!
The closest long stay pay and display car parks to the Trail start point are at King Edward Court (SL4 1TF) and River Street (SL4 1QT), just a five-minute walk away. This Trail is also perfect for getting to Windsor by train!
There are some fantastic events in Windsor'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 Windsor Visitor Information.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning of the Trail, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way. The Long Walk makes a great picnic spot if the weather is nice (although glass is not allowed)!
Why not make a day of it and explore Windsor' regal history with a visit to the castle, treat yourself with a little retail therapy or take in the scenery with a boat trip along the Thames? You could even try our Windsor Gardens and Riverside or Eton Trails if you fancied another adventure!
