The Oxford City and Meadow 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...
You'll encounter some cobbles and a kissing gate along the route, so, unfortunately, it isn't suitable for wheelchairs. Those with light, foldable pushchairs should find this manageable.
Bring your four-legged friends along! This is a completely dog-friendly Trail.
Please note that Christ Church Meadow occasionally floods after extraordinary rainfall. Two clues would be inaccessible during this time.
There are some fantastic events in Oxford'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 Oxford Visitor Information.
There are public toilets available at Clue 01, Clue 05 (women only) and Clue 20 (closed Sundays). The route passes several pubs, snack shops and cafes at the beginning of the Trail. There are some great picnic opportunities along the way!
Why not make a day of it and visit some of Oxford's amazing attractions - like Carfax Tower and Christ Church College? You could even take a punt along the river! Or, if you'd like another challenge, have a go at one of the other Trails in our Oxford collection!
