A clue based trail around some of the sights of Walthamstow


  • A fun group activity
  • Suitable for all ages
  • Healthy (it's walking!)
  • Get to know more about Walthamstow


The trail begins at Walthamstow Central Station.  Follow the directions given in the blue boxes. As you go, solve the clues given in yellow.


Each of the answers is a word which will link to one of the locations on the map of Blackheart Island. Cross out each location as you identify it.  When you have solved all the clues, you should be left with one final location - the location of King John’s gold!


There are many good places to stop and rest during the trail, as well as a number of really nice cafes (some maybe open for takeaways).

The walk itself is about 1 hr 20 mins.  How long it takes you will depend on how quickly you solve the clues but we recommend allowing 2.5 to 3 hrs.  You may want to turn it into a day trip by enjoying the museums and parks as you go (check whether they have re-opened).  


Purchasing here will give you a link to be able to download trail which can be printed on any printer (A4, 2 sided).  It would work in black and white, but colour would definitely make it easier with the picture clues.
