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 to explore Durham, there are a few things you need to know…
The route is not friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs due to cobbles, steps and uneven, sometimes muddy, terrain.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is a busy city centre so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Walkergate (DH1 1SQ). Or why not try Durham’s Park and Ride service?
There are some fantastic events in Durham’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 become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions. Please check for any events before setting off.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning and end of the Trail, as well as near Clue 03. The route passes several pubs, shops, restaurants and a few cafes along the way, and Clues 13-14 make a perfect picnic spot.
