Family Fun

There's plenty of family-orientated fun to be had in and around Bedford

Bedford Treasure Trail

You'll be amazed at what you discover on the Bedford self-guided treasure hunt themed Treasure Trail - a great way for all the family to work together and enjoy quality time outdoors.

Along the easy to follow route you'll be searching high and low for clues, some easy, some sneaky, set on plaques, signs, statues and buildings. Each clue will get you one step closer to solving the mystery and the location of the long lost treasure.

All ages from 6 upwards can get involved on this 3 mile route down quaint streets, through parkland and along beautiful waterways. It will take you at least 2 hours, longer if you choose to stop off and enjoy the sights along the way.

Trails are self-guided and can be instantly downloaded from the website
