The Cambridge Treasure Hunt Trail

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 Cambridge.

Treasure Trails have been the fun way to explore Cambridge since 2005. In this time, thousands of people have followed our Trail routes around the city and solved our sneaky clues found on permanent and quirky features around Cambridge.

Who are they for?

Our Cambridge self-guided themed Treasure Trails are perfect for young detectives and adults who never grew up.

The Trail routes

There are five Cambridge Trail adventures for you to explore the city on - which one will you pick?

Cambridge Central: Covers the city centre shopping area, and takes you past many of the University Colleges.

Cambridge Fitzwilliam: To the southwest of the city, this Trail includes many of the Universtiy buildings and a stretch along the river cam.

Cambridge Jesus Green: Including stretches of the River Cam and often missed areas to the north of the city, this Trail also explores the delightful Jesus Green.

Cambridge Midsummer: Exploring the east of the city centre, this Trail includes parts of Midsummer Common and the 'boat house' section of the River Cam.

Cambridge Parker's Piece: Highlighting hidden gems to the southeast of the city, this Trail explores Parker's Piece.

The routes of the five Trails can be seen on a map here
