Leighton – Linslade Children’s Trail: Leighton Buzzard town centre is a great place for children as well as adults and one of the best ways for them to have fun is to take the Children’s Trail.
The Leighton – Linslade Children’s Trail is a public trail of 22 artworks celebrating children’s stories for little people, with big imaginations, to explore.

It’s a free challenge-based activity map that allows young followers of the Trail to seek out the hidden treasures and delight in the discovery of something unusual, in unnoticed places – up above their heads or at their feet – and use their own imaginations to interpret the meanings of the shadows, word and sculptures they discover.

The Children’s trail is part of the Buzzard Trails app or you can access the map from Leighton-Linslade Town Council offices or online here: https://www.leightonlinslade-tc.gov.uk/the-childrens-trail/
