Nottingham Wise Owl Walk

A brand new trail called the Nottingham Wise Owl Walk (WOW) is coming to Nottingham from 1 September!

As part of our recovery plan, we have created a brand new trail to encourage visitors into the city centre. 10 colourful owl sculptures will be landing at various location in the city centre from 1 September 2020, creating a fun and interactive trail for people to enjoy until 6 November 2020.

We will be working with Wild In Art, who were the creatives behind the popular Hoodwinked trail back in 2018 in Nottingham. 

We hope the Wise Owl Walk will encourage visitors into the city and promotes dwell time spent in the centre.

We will be printing an A4 map for people to follow to find the owls and a digital map will also be available to downloaded from It's in Nottingham's website. We are asking for businesses to hold copies of the map for people to call in and pick up a copy. If you would like to stock the map and be listed on It's in Nottingham website as a distributor, please complete the following here.

We will deliver the maps to you prior to 1st September.


PLEASE NOTE: Your details will only be used for the purpose of this request and will not be passed onto any 3rd party companies.
