Walk Description

Created by artist Gordon Young in 1992, the fish represented are all life-size, from a school of 36 tiny anchovies to a 10ft ray overlooking Victoria Pier. You might also spot Young’s sense of humour coming through with the location of a few of the fish. In particular, the shark outside a former bank and the electric eel outside an electrical substation.

This impressive, family-friendly trail will see you take in everything from the big landmarks to peculiar back alleys you may have otherwise missed.
