Treasure Trails has the perfect solution to keeping your children entertained at low cost this summer. They have created 40 treasure hunt adventures in local towns and villages which will give you a fun and exciting day out, without the theme park price tag. As every parent knows, finding six weeks of activities to keep everybody in the family entertained can be a challenge and getting them to do something in the outdoors that is healthy and educational at the same time sounds too good to be true! For just £5 a Treasure Trail will engage the whole family in solving an intriguing mystery and will show you a multitude of fascinating, historical and unusual things about your town that you probably wouldn’t have otherwise seen. The Trails are completed in your own time and are Treasure Hunt, Murder Mystery and Spy Mission themed walks. An easy to follow route will take you to the most beautiful and interesting places in that area and answers to the clues are located on existing monuments and buildings. Former England footballer, Gary Lineker had lots of fun with his then fiancée Danielle Bux on a Treasure Trail around Armagh last year.
Dawn Thomas and her family recently completed the Norwich Treasure Trail and said ‘What a great idea! We saw so much more of the city than if we had just wandered around aimlessly. It was a great (and cheap!) way to get the family to visit somewhere new and have fun whilst learning a bit of history. Thanks, I’ll be buying more for our holiday in August.’ Dave Senior started Treasure Trails Norfolk in 2009 with the aim of getting local people and visitors to see and learn more about the area. He said ‘We all know that British summertime weather can be a bit unpredictable but walking, exploring and solving clues is just as much fun in the sunshine as in the rain! Treasure Trails are a great activity for the whole family to complete together as children, parents and grandparents can all get involved in finding and solving our exciting, innovative and fun mysteries.’ So if you are stuck for something to do this summer, whether at home or on holiday, for just £5 for your group a Treasure Trail will help the whole family explore and learn on an exciting adventure.
