Did you know that May is National Walking Month? Now, we don't know about you but if we tell our little one that we are 'going for a walk' we are met with groans, moans, huffs, puffs and grumbles. From a child's point of view, going for a walk is "BORRRRING!!" However, that's not always the case and we have found these fantastic, fun, family friendly ways to get out for a walk. Hope it helps!
Treasure Trails have 29 fun family friendly trails to choose from in Derbyshire, and hundreds more across the UK.
A Treasure Trail is an imaginative way to explore towns, cities & villages across the UK with a self-guided themed walk. An easy to follow route will enable you to crack the clues whilst taking in some of the most fascinating sights along the way.
Priced at just £6.99 (plus any P&P), you only need one Trail booklet per family/group of up to 4-5 people.
We loved this when we discovered it last year and we will likely do it again as the warmer weather approaches!
What is Geocaching?
The video below explains it better than we can! But what we can tell you is that it's free (some caches are 'premium' paid for but lots are free) and great family fun for everyone. There are over 5750 geocaches to find in Derby, some are in places that you may visit frequently but never knew were there!
Download the app and 'join the world's largest treasure hunt!'
