Toads, Moths and Puffins

A city centre walk around hull's artist decorated animal sculptures

This is a self-guided tour of many of the iconic animal sculptures that enliven Hull city centre. Larkin with Toads was part of Larkin25, the 2010 festival which celebrated the

poet’s work and his contribution to the heritage of our city.

A Moth for Amy kept alive the memory of Hull heroine Amy Johnson, highlight ing her solo flight to Australia in her de Havilland Gipsy Moth aeroplane, ‘Jason’.

The 60 giant moths that still adorn many of Hull’s buildings were part of the 2016
Amy Johnson Festival of the Arts & Engineering.

Puffins Galore! is this year’s colourful addition to the city’s animal sculptures – a celebration of local people, places and wildlife; a trail that starts at Bempton and takes in Bridlington, Hornsea, Withernsea, Hull, Cottingham and Beverley, as well as other East Yorkshire towns and villages.
