Treasure Trails for Suffolk


Local Treasure Trail Writer Dave Senior has created 12 new Treasure Trails for Suffolk; each offer an imaginative and fun way to explore – and learn about – the local area and its history.  

The books retail at £6.99 each.

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.  Next, follow an easy route and answer a series of clues, involving some interesting, scenic and historical sights along the way to find the answers.

The new Suffolk Trails will see you looking to solve The Mystery of Rosie Lee’s Last Cuppa in Southwold, seeking to identify the location of The Hidden German Gold in Lowestoft or attempting to thwart disgruntled jockey Rhoda Loser’s evil plan to disrupt horseracing in Newmarket.

Other Trails cover Aldeburgh, Beccles, Bury St Edmunds, Eye, Framlingham, Hadleigh and Lavenham, whilst a combined driving and walking Trail explores the villages of Walberswick, Dunwich and Thorpeness.  

All are available online at

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.

Look out for the clear symbols on the front of each Trail which indicate the length of the trail, how long it should take, and whether it is pushchair and wheelchair friendly.

Most of the local Trails are dog friendly too so you can get the whole family out and about, whatever their age, exploring Suffolk.

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 Suffolk and most importantly…have great fun doing so.

Treasure Trails was awarded a 2013 Certificate of Excellence by online review site, TripAdvisor.
