If you visit one of the locations, you'll get one entry into the prize draw but if you visit all seven you'll get seven entries and more chances to win that £250 cash. Happy hunting!

Go to the place where the oldest iron bridge still in use is located, and then you might want to seek out a shop that sells a two wheeled mode of transport to find the lucky code.

If you’re looking for pancakes in February this is the town to go to but now you can look for a shop with a flowery name where you can buy gifts and presents and which will have the lucky code.

MK Museum is on the edge of this old railway town and if you head toward the rail station yo'll find a coffee shop with a musical theme to find your code.

This town used to be called Hogsty End and if you walk down the High Street you will find a shop where you can book to travel anywhere on the planet.

Watling Street, the old Roman road, runs right through the middle of this old coaching town and if you want art with your tea, check out this store.

The codebreakers who broke the Enigma code in WWII were based in this town and if you are scared of snakes or creepy crawlies you might not want to find this clue.
