This new family trail needs help from your children! Masha – a robot from the future who has been time-traveling in Bath – can’t remember the code she needs to type into her system to transport herself back to the future.
Help Masha to look around Bath (taking in many different time periods yourself) to find the code she needs to get home. Can you work out if her code should start with a 6 or a 3? Which part of the code can she get from the Abbey or from Pulteney Bridge?
This trail takes you on a short route from outside the Roman Baths, next door to look at the Pump Room, to the Abbey, to Orange Grove, Pulteney Bridge, Laura Place, Great Pulteney Street, Sunderland Place and finishes at the Holburne Museum. You don’t have to enter any attractions, the answers to the trail can all be found in Bath’s brilliant architecture.
The trail is written in a ‘choose your own adventure style’ – so to help your child feel that they are really making discoveries of their own, their is no easy flicking from one question to the next in this trail. Instead, when you’ve worked out the answer to a question, you will be guided to another page further in your trail and only then find out where to go for the next question. Masha’s holiday photos (using real archive images) and historical facts keep you going along the way.
This trail is most suited to children aged 7-9, but you know your own child best so some children at either end of this age range will be able to enjoy this trail.
The trail is sent to you as a beautiful read-to-view file (in pdf format) that you load up on your smartphone/ tablet and then carry about with you in Bath. No need for any printing, and no app to find space to download. For easy use of our electronic files, we suggest that you save your trail to your phone on downloading.
