There are 80 Gromits to find all over Bristol and a few in other towns. My sister and I found 39. It was really fun looking for the Gromits and sometimes we found some without meaning to. My favourite ones were a salty sea dog by Peter Lord, Gromit Lightyear by Pixar and Where's Wallace? by Martin Handford.
Overall it was a great thing to do in the holiday and if you want to do the trail, start looking in Bristol before the end of the summer holidays or as Wallace would say "get cracking lads " It ends on September 8th.
We've sent this post to Gretta at Mumsdotravel where she and others recommend other great family days out!
UPDATE: We have now managed to visit the original Gromit, who is currently in London, at Paddington Station. Take a look at our little post and pics here.
