What to do in Newquay - The Spooky Newquay 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 Spooky Newquay Treasure Trail starts at:

Trenance Gardens

Please Note:

Please do not attempt this Trail after heavy rain – the boating lake towards the end of the route may flood, meaning you won’t be able to complete your treasure hunt.

Unfortunately, the route is not friendly for wheelchair users as you encounter some steep hills, as well as a stretch of uneven terrain. However, those with light pushchairs should find this manageable.

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that you will encounter some busy roads and stretches of open water, so dogs will need to be kept on leads.

We recommend parking in Trenance car park at Newquay Zoo (TR7 2LZ), where the Trail begins. There is overflow parking behind Waterworld if the main car park is full.

There are some fantastic events in Newquay’s calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful seaside town. However, you may find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Newquay Visitor Information.

There are public toilets available near Clues 08, 12 and 16. You’ll pass snack shops and refreshment stops between Clues 10 and 14. Why not pack a picnic to enjoy at Clue 07 or Clue 16?

Why not make a day of it and explore some of Newquay’s attractions? Newquay Zoo is open year round, and the immersive Pirate’s Quest can be visited during the spring and summer months. If you fancy another challenge, have a go at our Newquay Murder Mystery Trail!
