The Snowdogs by the Sea Trail in Brighton is not to be missed.

Snowdogs

There are 45 of these delightful Snowdogs in the streets of Brighton which have been designed by various artists and sponsored by local businesses and organisations in aid of The Martlets Hospice.

Living in London, we are well used to a trail.  And we absolutely love them.  The BFG Dream Jar Trail being the most recent one this summer.

Here are my two checking out the locations with dogged determination ………

Snowdog Trail

Arriving in Brighton to be greeted by one of these gorgeous works of art was just perfect for us.  It’s a fabulous way of getting to see Brighton on foot for the tourist and absolute perfect fun for the children and adults alike.

We loved the Disco Dog.  So pretty!

These trails are at least a whole days entertainment so they make for a very economical day out with children of all ages – particularly during half-term and weekends.   All that is asked is for you to make a small donation of £3 (more if you wish) to the Martlets Hospice.  I have provided the details below.

The artwork on all of the Snowdogs was stunning and the interesting story behind each one fascinating.

I thought I’d whet the appetite with a few of our finds but I’m not giving too much away.  Don’t want to spoil the mystery of the trail!

As always with these trails, you meet lots of other people doing the same thing and it’s fun to share the details and locations of the next find.

Again, it’s a great half-term activity.

I found the stories behind all of the designs particularly interesting.

A fave as mentioned in my Top 10 Brighton Picks was Grrrace.  With us being big fans of Peter James, this snowdog was a delight to discover.

This is a close up of the artwork on Grrrace.  Brilliant isn’t it.

There are also some snow puppies on the trail which have been created by locals schools.  We managed to see one of the puppies.  Just look at the fantastic artwork the children have produced.  This was a close up taken of part of the puppy.

And a Mod Dog!

We certainly saw lots of Brighton on foot on this trail.  A nice walk along the beach to the Brighton Marina for a few more works of art and a quick stop for refreshments.

There is a fabulous Giant Snowdog and Snowman at the Marina.  I’ll leave you to find that one for yourself.

And I bet you can guess which one this is?

Thought so!

As I said this is a really great day of entertainment and you can find out more information here http://www.snowdogsbythesea.co.uk/.

There are all sorts of events taking place as part of the Snowdogs by the Sea trail and all that is asked is a small donation to the Martlets Hospice.

The trail is on until 27 November 2016.

All in all, a pawfect day out.

Enjoy!
