The Padstow's Curious Detective Mystery Treasure Trail Starts at:

Station Road
PL28 8DA

Please Note:

This Trail has not been marked as accessible for wheelchair users due to sections without pavements, some uneven stony paths and hills along the route. However, those with pushchairs should find this manageable.

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that the town centre can get very busy, so please keep your dog on a lead throughout the Trail.

The closest pay and display car parks to this Trail's start point are located at The Railway Car Park or The Harbour Commissioners. Please visit their websites for information on parking and charges. A park and ride service is available through the summer months from the entrance to Padstow (just before Tesco), which conveniently drops you at the start of the Trail!

Parking availability is restricted during Padstow Christmas Festival. Please visit the festival website for the dates they will be in Padstow this year.

May Day - or Obby Oss Day - is held annually on 1st May in Padstow (or 2nd May if the 1st falls on a Sunday) and is the busiest day in Padstow's calendar. Though it is a fantastic time to visit Padstow, many of the Clues may be obscured or difficult to access.

There are public toilets available at the start point of the Trail, and between Clues 14 and 15. The route passes several pubs, restaurants and a few cafes from Clue 15 onwards, and there is a fantastic picnic spot (with spectacular views) around Clue 11!

Why not make a whole day of it and visit Prideaux Place or the Padstow Museum to learn more about Padstow's heritage? You could even take in the beautiful scenery on the South West Coast Path (near Clue 11).
