Lovely walk around such a historic town

Great day out. Fun having to find all the hidden items. Some are rather obvious (like the giants pencil in Parsons Park) and others more hidden (such as the shadow of a cat sitting on one of the bollards on the high street or the painting of the borrowers on one of the walls surrounding Leighton Middle school because that is where Mary Norton the author lived). Remember to collect your prize at the end. Brilliant for young kids.

This was fun. Took a lot longer than 1 hour. Ok, so the adults may have been into it a little bit more so advice is to do first thing or after lunch - our children got hungry and lost interest. Every town should do this as we discovered more shops/cafés/interesting things about the town. Well done 😁

Spot the pawprint

Pick up a copy of the Children’s Trail at the Library (complete with pencil) or download it from the internet. My main tip is don’t just set off, read the instructions carefully! This would have helped us in the long run, as we completely missed the bit telling us that a (blue) pawprint would be situated next to each clue! And that clues marked with a blue dot on the map were sculptures or painted, and clues with a red dot on the map were words we had to find. Once we had realised that, the trail became much easier. Although, actually, the pawprint is missing from the very last clue (22). Also be aware that some of the clues are in alleyways such as Peacock Mews which are gated after business hours. And one clue is in the bandstand, so obviously you can’t gate-crash a Sunday afternoon concert! But it’s great fun for all ages and certainly gives a different insight to Leighton Buzzard. We enjoyed the Trail and thought the Town Council have done a good job in creating this.

Fun trail for all the family which gets you exploring the whole town!

Such a fantastic trail with some really lovely artwork and sculptures to find along the way. You have to hunt high and low so it got the whole family involved trying to spot them. Something different to do with the kids and it's free!

Rainy treasure hunt

Fun, despite the fact the heavens opened. Lots of ground to cover too, so good to be out and about somewhere other than the park.

Collect your map and guide book (the one with photos of what you are looking for) from the library or council offices (The White House).

You can start the trail anywhere although with young children finishing in the park might be a good idea. There are public toilets on route (Multi-storey car park).

If you are local you will be amazed at how much you walk pass and do not notice!

I have taken 3 Cub Scout Packs round the trail and the children enjoy the trail taking about 45 minutes.

We decided to try this local trail with children aged 3-9yrs. All of the children and us adults had a lovely afternoon following trail with a quick park pit stop. Lovely to see the children working as a team to find each clue. Would recommend to all ages. Well done Leighton linslade children's trail 5⭐️
