Snailspace: colour, ice cream and fun on Brighton’s coastline this halfterm
- 16 October 2018
Fifty giant snail sculptures, each uniquely decorated by an artist, have sneaked onto the streets of Brighton & Hove and will remain there until Sunday 18th November 2018. Looking for things to do with the kids in Brighton and Sussex this halfterm? We spent this afternoon checking out the snails trail and we can report that it’s well worth a visit.
The colourful creatures will be on show for nine weeks, encouraging locals to be tourists in their own city and generating a giant snail sized ‘feel-good’ factor. The giant gastropods will be joined by a host of smaller snails as part of the Junior Snailway.
More than 50 nurseries, schools and youth groups will decorate their own snails, which will be displayed in accessible locations across the city. At the end of the trail there will be a celebratory Farewell Event; a chance to see the snail sculptures together. Finally, the giant gastropods will be auctioned to raise money for the wonderful Martlets charity and its life-changing care.
If its budget friendly trips for kids that you’re after then completing the #BeMoreSnail trail is a must. And if you do spent the £1.99 on the mobile app (half of which goes to charity) then the in-app rewards more than pay for this, including buy one get one free on some of Brighton’s yummiest gelato.
