Things to do in Machynlleth - The Machynlleth 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 Machynlleth Treasure Trail starts at:

Back Lane
SY20 8DY

Please Note:

This Trail is along a relatively level route but has not been marked as wheelchair friendly due to some grassed areas and surfaces encountered along the Trail route. Accompanied wheelchair users may be able to complete the Trail.

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that there is one Clue that is in an area where dogs are not permitted, so we could not advise bringing along your pup if you are doing the Trail alone.

There is a pay and display car park located at Machynlleth car park, Maengwyn Street, where the Trail begins. There are public toilets available at the car park.

During May, Machynlleth plays host to an annual comedy festival, so although a great time to visit this beautiful town, you may find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates around the town, please see the Visit Wales Spotlight on Machynlleth website.

Why not make a day of it and once you've cracked the case, visit the nearby Falconry Experience Wales for some conservation education and to see these beautiful birds in action? Alternatively, you could discover more of Machynlleth's artistic history at the Museum of Modern Art, or spend an afternoon exploring along the beautifully restored narrow gauge steam Corris Railway!
