The Stratford Town and Canal Basin 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.

The route is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is a busy town centre so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
There is plenty of parking near the bedding of the Trail (Stratford Butterfly Farm, Swan’s Nest Lane). Or why not try Stratford-upon-Avon’s fantastic Park and Ride service?
There are some fantastic events in Stratford-upon-Avon’s calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful town. 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 Stratford-upon-Avon Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available towards the beginning, middle, and end of the Trail and the route passes several cafes along the way.
Why not make a day of it and visit the Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm or the Royal Shakespeare Company to learn more twisting tales about the area? You could even challenge yourself to our other Stratford-upon-Avon Trails!
