Snowdogs by the Sea
Brighton & Hove is home to the wonderful Snowdogs by the Sea, a free public art trail across the city running until 27th November.
There are 45 Snowdogs by the Sea sculptures across the city, but what’s it all about? The sculptures are based on the adorable Snowdog from The Snowman & the Snowdog written by Raymond Briggs who lived in nearby Ditchling. Each sculpture has been sponsored by a local business and each one is individually designed by a different artist.
We are proud to be supporting the event by sponsoring the Snowdogs by the Sea app. The app is available to download through iTunes or the Play Store. When you find a dog scan the QR code to keep track of which sculptures you have found, there’s also a handy map along with offers & competitions.
The majority of the dogs are within walking distance of each other but with over 40 of the lovable sculptures to visit why not make a break of it and spend a few days finding them all? To help make it easier for you each week on our blog we will focus on an area of the city where you can see 4 to 6 dogs as well as tips on things to see & do in the area to make a day of it.
Snowdogs by the Sea Map
Physical copies of the map are available at our 15 Visitor Information Points. Please note the above map shows Brighton Belle in her new home in the British Airways i360 shop, whereas physical copies of the map will show her original location at London Victoria station.
The Snowdogs will be at various sites across Brighton & Hove until Sunday 27th November. But the pack will return for one special farewell event. This will be your chance to see the whole pawsome pack together under one roof, including the Snowpups! The event will be on the 4th & 5th December at the Corn Exchange.
In addition to being a fun and enjoyable art trail the Snowdogs by the Sea will also be raising vital finds for the Martlets. Martlets is a charity that cares for people living through a terminal illness providing life changing hospice care.
On 6th December all the Snowdogs will be put up for auction with the proceeds going to the Martlets. There will also be fund-raising events throughout the trail and visitors can donate by texting SDOG16 to 70070.
