What is a Quiz Trail?
A self-guided walk taking you on a circular route - showing you the highlights. We started making our Quiz Trails from a love of history - each 20 page booklet is packed with local history. We are a Mum and two (grown up!) daughters and as a family we'd visit places - walk around the middle bit and go home not having learnt very much about the area. Our trails make sure you see and learn lots more during your visit!

Are they long?
We keep them to under 2 miles and they take about 1 to 2 hours. Got to leave time in the day for a drink and an ice cream! You can stop at any point during the trail - there's no time limit - you can do them entirely at your own pace in your own time.

Do I need one book per person?
Our Quiz Trails are made for sharing - one book is all that's needed for a small group. They have adult questions and an extra set of questions for juniors - you complete the answers as you go.

Is it only for children and families?
Definitely NO! We aim to give an enjoyable time to solos, couples, groups of friends as well as families. From our feedback lots of older people are having a fun time answering the children's questions as well as the adult questions. We must never lose the child within us! Plus some groups of friends have turned it into a chance to pop into the local pubs while doing the route!

Are they available in shops?
For most areas we have stockists where you can pop in and buy them. For those areas where we don't have stockists - we're working on it.
Please see our Stockists details on this page here - Local Stockists

If I order through the post, how long will they take to arrive?
We post every day Monday to Friday so as soon as your order is in, we're working on getting it to you. We send via Royal Mail and from our tests we know that the vast majority arrive in 2 to 3 days.

Are the Quiz Trails wheelchair user / pushchair user friendly?
We really do take obstacles and difficulties into account and where there are steps or difficult access we give alternative routes. However, we all know that not everywhere has 100% accessible areas and some places, by their historical nature, have difficulties - such as Rye has hills and cobblestones and Sandwich has very narrow pavements. We do our very best to overcome potential problems as much as possible.

Are the Quiz Trails dog friendly?
All Quiz Trails are outside and in public areas so four legged friends can enjoy the trails - exploring at their own height.

What ages are the Quiz Trails suitable for?
ALL ages! They are an activity old and young can do together. The children's questions are geared to about 5 to 12 years olds but we've had great feedback from teenagers having enjoyed the trails just as much as the younger ones. Perfect retirement activity too. All ages can enjoy doing a Quiz Trail - we hope you enjoy them.
