Looking to keep your children active and entertained during the holidays? Why not test their detective skills and keep them busy with Montgomery’s two family-friendly quiz trails.
The Town of Little Cars Trail is designed for younger children and is pushchair friendly. The quiz challenges children to find the names of 14 cars in windows at locations around the town centre taking in all the local sites.
The quiz also includes a dot-to-dot puzzle and, once they’ve finished the trails, the whole family can visit the Cloverlands Model Car Museum in Arthur Street to see the original model vehicles up close.
For adventurous children aged approximately seven to 13 years, the Montgomery Historic Town Quiz Trail offers the chance to explore the back streets of the town on foot, discover some little-known facts and to stop for some fun at the playpark en route. Quizzers must follow the clues around the town to find the answers.
Local mum, Nicky Markham, said:
“It’s a great little trail. We found a secret path we didn’t know existed and learned some interesting facts along the way.”
At the end, quizzers call into the local cafés or the Dragon Hotel to check their answers. It’s a perfect opportunity for parents to have a cuppa and quizzers a well-earned treat.
Both quiz trails cost £1.50 each and include a Montgomery Trails pencil with Monty the Dragon topper. Quizzers can also opt to enter a Destination Montgomery free draw for vouchers to exchange at food and drink businesses in the town. Quizzes can be bought from The Library, Dragon Hotel, Castle Kitchen and Ivy House Café.
