Treasure Trails A Fun New Way For Kids To Explore
If you are looking for something new to do with the children this Autumn then why not try a Treasure Trail – they offer an imaginative and fun way to explore – and learn about – the great outdoors. They are ideal for discovering more about the place where you live. At just £6.99 each, they offer a great value activity for all the family.
Treasure Trails are available online at www.treasuretrails.co.uk There are over 1,000 different Treasure Trials available, covering towns, cities and rural areas across the UK. All Trails are listed on the website so you should easily find somewhere you’d like to explore.
You can choose between three themes; a Treasure Hunt, a Spy Mission or a Murder Mystery. At the outset of each Trail the ‘mission’ is given – to find the treasure, crack the spy code or discover the murderer. You then follow an easy route and answer a series of clues involving some interesting, scenic and historical sights along the way to find the answers.
Treasure Trails are neat A5 booklets that are light and easy to carry. They vary in length, but most average two miles and take a couple of hours to complete. Clear symbols on the front of each Trail will tell you at a glance the length of the Trail, how long it should take you and whether it is pushchair and wheelchair friendly. There are also some longer driving and cycling Trails.
Each Treasure Trail also has a ‘Trail Trouble Textline’ that offers instant help with the clues in case you get stuck – so no Trail should remain unsolved. When you have completed the Trail you can submit your answer online for the chance to win up to £1000.
Treasure Trails are a great way to encourage children to get out in the fresh air, explore a new area and most importantly... have great fun doing so.
This year Treasure Trails was awarded a 2013 Certificate of Excellence by online review site, TripAdvisor. This is only awarded to those receiving an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, by site visitors. A great accolade for such an outdoor activity.
