The Oxford Jericho and Canal Treasure Trail starts at:
Park End Street
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.

The route is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs. However, please note that there is some rough terrain along the way, including cobblestones.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that there may be times where dogs will need to be on leads.
The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at the Worcester Street Car Park (OX1 2BQ), which is the starting point of the Trail. Or why not try Oxford’s fantastic Park and Ride service?
There are some fantastic events in Oxford’s calendar/a>, 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 Oxford Tourist 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.
