Wednesday Love: Gromit Unleashed

Over the past couple of years we have spent our summers hunting for things. Two years ago there were 60 multicoloured gorilla statues dotted around Bristol which we searched out (well, some of them anyway). Last year we spent a great day in Wells looking for lots of beautiful swans. This year I was delighted to hear that there would be Gromits arriving in Bristol all summer - 80 in total. 

Gromit Unleashed is a trail of Gromit sculptures designed by a wide range of artists and celebrities to help raise money for Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's hospital charity. We are having great fun looking for Gromits and have discovered some new places to visit that we haven't been to before, such as the Windmill Hill City Farm. We also found ourselves at the Bristol Museum on the day they were teaching the kids to do mono-printing - we had to join in and get inky!


The boy is loving the trail. He is particularly excited about going to see the Gromit Buzz Lightyear soon.


  1. I haven't been yet but am looking forward to spying me some Grommits soon,

  2. What a great outdoor summer activity - shame I live so far from Bristol. How many have you found?


    1. Hi Tracey - we're up to 70 already!
