The Pickering Treasure Trail starts at:

Eastgate
Pickering
North Yorkshire
YO18 7DP
England

This Trail starts at The Ropery car park which is situated next to the Tourist Information Centre and skirts around the centre of Pickering, through the town centre and around the castle, before finishing at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. The 'figure of eight' route follows pavements and paths, some of which can get muddy so suitable footwear is recommended.

There are toilets at the start of the Trail. Refreshments are available in various pubs and cafes as well as in the town centre towards the end of the Trail.

The route takes you past the Beck Isle Museum and the English Heritage run Pickering Castle (Admission charges and opening times apply to both). You could also take a trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (check at the station or nymr.co.uk for timetable and fares).

There are two main long stay car parks in Pickering. Eastgate is located next to the roundabout where the A170 and A169 cross. Use the map in the car park here to locate Tourist Information and the start of the Trail. Vivis Lane is more central, being near the crossroads next to The Ropery short stay car park where the Trail starts. Both of these car parks are signed as Long Stay parking as you enter the town. Buses to Pickering also run from neighbouring towns and villages.

The Pickering Spy Mission Treasure Trail should be purchased prior to leaving home. Once you have your Trail booklet in your hand you're good to go! The easiest and quickest way to get the most up to date version of the Pickering Treasure Trail is to order a download version off the website. You will instantly get a link to download a PDF file of the Trail for you to print at home. This can be done at any time of day or night for instant access. If you would like a hard copy, then choose the printed option online and we will pop one in the post for you to be delivered within 2-3 working days. If you are looking to do the Trail today and don't have a printer, we do have a couple of local retailers (use the search below) or why not purchase a download and go to a local library where you can print it off. If there are no other options though, with a little patience (due to scale and format) the Trail can be used on a tablet and at a push a phone. Sometimes you just want to speak to a real person though, so call one of the team on 01872 263692, Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30pm.
