Things to do in Hitchin - The Hitchin Treasure Trail

Please Note: As much as we love people exploring on our Trails, now is not the right time. We want to help the NHS and protect all of you, so have decided to remove the facility for any Trail sales to be made on our website. As soon as social restrictions are relaxed, we'll make the Trails available again. If you would like to be informed as soon as this is, please drop us a note on the contact page.

Need a bit of retail therapy, or want to get a gift? You can still buy gift vouchers for future use.

The Haunted Hitchin Treasure Trail starts at:

Portmill Lane
North Hertfordshire

Please Note:

This route is not recommended for wheelchair users due to some uneven walkways and busy roads, however those with pushchairs should find this manageable.

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is a busy town centre so dogs will need to be kept on leads.

This Trail starts at Portmill Lane West car park, which has a maximum stay of 4 hours. The closest long stay car park is Lairage Multi-Storey, approximately a 5-minute walk away.

There are some fantastic events in Hitchin’s calendar, as well as regular markets. Although these are great times to visit Hitchin, some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Hitchin Visitor Information.

There are public toilets available towards the beginning of the Trail and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way. 

Why not make a day of it and visit Hitchin’s British Schools Museum or spend your afternoon strolling around Butts Close or the nearby Oughtonhead Nature Reserve!
