The Yarm 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.

Yarm is a small town on the border of North Yorkshire and the Tees Valley. It's almost surrounded by a loop of the River Tees, similar geography to both the City of Durham and Warkworth in Northumberland.
Occasionally, when the river is very high, the town's floodgates are closed. This means that parts of the Trail would be inaccessible during these times.
Route: The Trail starts and ends in the middle of the high street (TS15 9AH). This is a very wide street with beautiful Georgian buildings, independent shops and many places to eat and drink. As you follow the route, you'll discover some fascinating facts and see some incredible sights. You'll walk under the giant arches of the half-mile long viaduct and discover a stone bridge more than 600 years old. There are usually ducks and other water-birds here on the Tees, and sometimes you can watch canoeists enjoying 'messing about on the river'!
Facilities: As a lot of the Trail leads you along the high street of Yarm, there are plenty of opportunities for refreshments in the number of cafes, pubs and restaurants along the way. There are public conveniences available in the Town Hall at the start and end of the Trail.
Parking: There is pay and display parking all along and just off Yarm High Street
