Overview

The Hull tour follows the route of the famous Fish Trail, originally created in 1992 by the artist Gordon Young. 41 pieces of sculpture made from traditional materials make up this impressive piece of public art. The trail of sculptures is representing the actual size of fish with life size pieces, from a tiny anchovy to a 10ft ray. The artist's sense of humour surfaces with the placing of a plaice in the market place, an electric eel outside the electricity sub station and a shark outside a bank...

You will follow this series of fish sculptures around the streets of Hull, gaining an insight into the area and the workings of a modern working port.
