Bath Spy Mission Treasure Trail


Turn a regular day out into a full-blown adventure!

Bath is a beautiful city to visit, and there’s no better way to explore than by solving the sneaky clues on a self-guided Treasure Trail; the fun and imaginative way to discover Bath’s hidden gems all while on a top-secret mission! 

The Bath Cake-tastrope self-guided spy mission Trail leads you through the culture and heritage of this vibrant city. Your covert assignment is to stop the potty plot cooked up by evil sugar baron, Dr Ivor Sweet, who has tampered with the sugar content of Bath's prized cake recipes! Uncover fascinating stories around every corner as you sneak down the winding streets and around Bath Abbey in search of the clues that will help save the day.

So, what is a Treasure Trail?

It's a real-life adventure that fires up the imagination and gets you exploring the most exciting parts of Bath.

Treasure Trails are a captivating challenge that combines mind-twisting clues and fascinating stories for anyone with a sense of adventure, whether 6 or 106 (or somewhere in between).

The answers to the clues can be found on permanent historical and quirky features, so you'll be exploring and learning about the area at the same time.

Watch their “What is a Treasure Trail?” video to get the full lowdown.

All their Bath Trails are self-guided, which gives you the flexibility to enjoy your Trail adventure on any day of the week and at a time to suit you.

Allow yourself around two hours to complete a Bath Treasure Trail. You won’t even realise you’re walking a couple of miles as you go - you’ll be too busy having fun hunting for the answers to the clues!

How do I get a Trail Booklet?

Purchase your Bath Cake-tastrophe spy mission directly from the Treasure Trails website by clicking here.

Your Trail adventure can either be downloaded and printed at home for instant access to adventure or can be sent in the post; personalised versions are also available online, which can include your own photographs and text.

How Much?

Priced at £9.99 for the ‘Print at Home’ PDF download, £11.48 (including P&P) for the ‘Printed by Us’ version, or £14.98 (including P&P) for the personalised option, a Treasure Trail is great value and an enjoyable way to explore different parts of Bristol. What’s more, one Trail booklet can be shared between up to 4 or 5 people!

Eager for more?

As well as the Bath Cake-tastrophe Trail, we have two more Trails to try out in Bath:

Bath – The Roman Baths Mystery – a detective mystery Trail, with evidence to pick up around the Royal Crescent and the Roman Baths.
