Things to do in Ilkley - The Ilkley 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.

The Ilkley - On the wild side Treasure Trail starts at:

Station Road
Ilkley
West Yorkshire
LS29 6JH
England

As a lot of the Trail is via country paths, the weather can make them muddy and parts of the Moor can get exposed in the wind and rain, so please ensure you have suitable footwear and clothing before setting off.

There are public conveniences situated in the town at the main car park on South Hawksworth Street (LS29 9LA) and also up on the moor, next to the White Wells Spa Café.

Once you leave the town area, there aren’t many opportunities for refreshments (unless the White Wells Spa Café is open, but they have a limited menu, serving mainly hot drinks) so best to plan ahead before setting off. Of course, the area around White Wells is ideal for a picnic with stunning views across Ilkley on a clear day and there is a picnic area in the Darwin Gardens at the end of the Trail.

There is also a Scenic Detour included in the Trail if you fancy exploring the moors in more (!) detail to go and see Yorkshire’s oldest rock carving; the Swastika Stone.
