Turn a regular day out into a full-blown adventure!

South Devon is a great region to visit and there’s no better way to explore than by solving the sneaky clues on a self-guided Treasure Trail; the fun and imaginative way to discover South Devon's towns and villages all whilst solving a mystery! 

Family excursions don’t have to be over-crowded, stressful and eye-wateringly expensive.

Treasure Trails may just have the perfect solution to help re-discover the lost magic of an old-fashioned family day out – without a ride queue, mobile device or overdraft in sight.

So, What is a Treasure Trail?

It's a real-life adventure that fires up the imagination and gets you exploring the most interesting parts of Devon.

Our self-guided Treasure Trails are a captivating challenge that combines mind-twisting clues and fascinating stories for anyone with a sense of adventure.

The answers to the clues can be found on permanent historical and quirky features so you'll be exploring and learning about the area at the same time.

*Watch our “What is a Treasure Trail?” video above to get the full lowdown*

All of our Devon Treasure Trails are self-guided, which gives you the flexibilty to enjoy your Trail adventure on any day of the week and at a time to suit you.

Allow yourself around 2 hours to complete a Devon Treasure Trail and you - and any grumpy kids - won’t even realise you have walked a couple of miles as you will be too busy having fun hunting for the answers to the clues!
