Treasure Trails’ Gloucester City & Docks

My family & I did something a little different last Sunday. We became pirates & went on a Treasure Trails’ Treasure Hunt around Gloucester City & it’s Historic Docks.

All of us had high hopes that it’d be an enjoyable day after doing a fun Spy Trail in the Forest of Dean a few years ago. We weren’t wrong!

The steps in the booklet were pretty easy to follow & clues were interesting. We started at Pitt Street, looped around the Cathedral before heading to the Docks. From there, we walked around to the shops & ended back where we started.

There were works going on in the Cathedral grounds but even with this disruption, the Cathedral looked as grand as ever.

As is customary on a family outing, we took a quick pit stop at Hubble Bubble Coffee House for cake & coffee. The slice of Millionaire’s Shortbread Dave & I ordered went down extremely well. Especially with the impressive presentation!

While we raced around to find clues & explore, we learnt about the local history & discovered hidden gems of the city. The Gloucester Docks were looking particularly stunning.

Once the puzzles were solved & trail completed, our final answer was entered online with hopes to win the monthly prize draw. But unfortunately, we got it completely wrong. Oops!!
