The Canterbury - The King`s Mile 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...
The route is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs. Please note, there are some narrow pathways along the route.
Unfortunately, this Trail is not suitable for dogs due to the busy city centre.
You can park in any of the central car parks to be within a short walking distance of the Trail start point.
There are some fantastic events in Canterbury’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 Canterbury Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available in the cathedral between Clues 06 and 07, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way.
