With 50 giant tortoise sculptures and 65 young tortoise sculptures to find across Jersey, there’s so much for you to see and explore! 

Talented artists are currently decorating their giant tortoise sculptures ready for the start of the trail on 1 July. Our Young tortoise trail kicks off a little bit earlier on 16 June. These smaller sculptures have been designed by local schools and community groups and will pop up in shop windows and public spaces.
