Barnsley Spy Mission Treasure Trail

Want to visit Barnsley with the kids but convincing them to go sightseeing is a bit of challenge? Or maybe you live in Barnsley and you think nothing in the city can surprise you anymore? Well, both of these problems have one and the same solution - the self-guided Barnsley Spy Mission Treasure Trail!

Armed with a Treasure Trail booklet, filled with clues, you and your tiny spies will go on a top secret mission to stop Dr Bea Nasty and her evil plan. As you solve the mystery of the case, you’ll get some exercise and learn about Bramley along the way.

The trail gives you flexibility - you can do it anytime you want and it takes only a couple of hours to complete. You can download the trail as PDF on the same day, or get a physical copy sent to you in the post.  You won’t get too tired out either - you’ll need to do just under 2 miles of walking to get to the bottom of the case.

  • Explore Barnsley on a 2-hour Treasure Trail
  • Solve clues to stop the villainous Dr Brea Nasty
  • Family-friendly & great value-for-money

This Trail route follows pavements and footpaths with step free access throughout, which makes it suitable for wheelchair and pushchair users.

There are a wide range of pubs, cafes and restaurants near the start, middle and end of this Trail. Public toilets can be found in the main shopping centres and in the bus station.

You will instantly get a link to download a PDF file of the Trail for you to print at home. This can be done at any time of day or night for instant access.

If you would like a hard copy, then choose the printed option online and we will pop one in the post for you to be delivered within 2-3 working days.

If you don't have a printer why not purchase a download and go to a local library where you can print it off. If there are no other options though, with a little patience (due to scale and format) the Trail can be used on a tablet and at a push a phone.
