Looking for a ewe-nique family day out this Bank Holiday? Why not take the whole flock sheep spotting, on the ‘Shaun in the City’ arts trail!
Head to the big city to enjoy this free-of-charge sculpture trail, which features 50 giant sculptures of Shaun the Sheep installed all over London. The sculptures are grazing in iconic locations and b-ewe-tiful green spaces, including Covent Garden, St James’s Park and Trafalgar Square.
But can ewe find them all? The sculptures have each been individually designed by artists, designers and celebrities including David Gandy, Zandra Rhodes and Cath Kidston.
Family favourites like Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom, Paddington Bear and The Gruffalo have also given the UK’s favourite sheep an extra-special makeover. Visitors have been flocking to the free arts trail since it started on 28 March, with the sculptures checked off more than 150,000 times by users of the official ‘Shaun in the City: Sheep Spotter’ app!

As well as finding all the sculptures, you can collect exclusive trophies, complete special trails and compare yourself against other Shaun Spotters.
