As winter comes to an end, step outside with Treasure Trails this February Half Term (16th – 24th February).
Will you crack the codes on a Spy Mission, become a detective with a Murder Mystery or find ‘X marks the spot’ on a Treasure Hunt?
There are over 1,200 Trails to choose from across the UK. From exploring urban cities to quaint, chocolate box villages and dramatic coastlines to fairy-tale woodland, Trailers will uncover the secrets of our country’s most scenic locations.
Treasure Trail booklets cost £6.99 (plus P&P if required), are suitable for groups of up to five and are designed to appeal to anyone with a sense of adventure; from young detectives and budding spies to adults who never grew up.
Lasting around two hours, the aim is to solve clues on a circular route of approximately two miles incorporating plaques, signs, statues, monuments, images, engravings or any other unique or eye-catching features.
