Find hidden historical treasures and see new sights in and around Maidstone. The Family Fun Treasure Trail is something different for the summer and fun for all the family!

Come and join us for a free Family Fun Treasure Trail, starting at the rear of Lockmeadow Entertainment Centre and follow the treasure map and solve the clues to explore Maidstone. The walking tour treasure trail takes you past lots of the most amazing and famous sights in Maidstone, solving the clues makes you slow down and really look around and spot things you may have never noticed before.

Allocate team roles; you’ll need a captain, navigator, first mate and lookouts too. It really is a fun day out for all the family. Your adventure should take around two hours and there is a reward for the fastest team who completes the treasure trail. There are more prizes to be won for the best explorer or pirate costumes, anyone can enter there’s no age limit!

The Family Fun Treasure Trail has been funded by the Reconnect Locality grant, which is a programme to help children and young people reconnect to their pre-pandemic lives by offering activities they can now enjoy together with family and friends.

There’s more!

You can also enjoy our exciting event village, where you’ll find games, face painting, inflatables and much more.

Who's it for?

This is a great day out for the whole family! It’s challenging enough for the adults and teenagers, but lots of fun for the younger explorers too, we recommend 6- year old plus, but younger children can still take part in the adventure. The Family Fun Treasure Trail is an exciting voyage where you need to solve the clues to find the hidden treasure!
