In Gromit Unleashed 2, Nick Park’s Academy Award®-winning character Gromit returned to Bristol for his second starring role, but this time he was not alone; the loveable pooch was joined by his pal Wallace and arch nemesis Feathers McGraw!

This trail featured over 60 giant sculptures designed by high-profile artists, designers, innovators, and local talent. Sculptures were positioned in high footfall and iconic locations around Bristol and the surrounding area, making the perfect family day out around Bristol and beyond.
