The Canterbury Treasure Trail starts at:

Sun Street
Canterbury
Kent
CT1 2HX
England

Please Note:

Unfortunately, this route isn’t suitable for wheelchair users as you will encounter a very steep bank and some narrow bridges with step access along the way. However, those exploring with pushchairs should find this manageable.

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 Trail visits parks which close at dusk, so give yourselves plenty of time to complete these sections before setting off.

The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Queningate (CT1 1NG), just a five-minute walk away. Or why not try Canterbury’s fantastic Park and Ride service?

There are some fantastic events in Canterbury’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. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Canterbury’s Tourist Information.
There are public toilets available at Clues 04, 08 and 12. The route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way, as well as some great picnic opportunities!

Why not make a day of it and uncover more twisting tales of Canterbury’s past by visiting Canterbury Cathedral, St Augustine’s Abbey or Westgate Towers Museum? If you’re up for another challenge, you could take on our Canterbury – The King’s Mile Trail adventure!
