Look up… Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Or the next clue on an adventure?
Stay active this summer and explore Nottingham city centre on foot with Nottingham City Council’s Look Up! Adventure Trail, a free family activity for the summer holidays. Aimed at primary school aged children (but open to all), the trail – accessed by a free app – will lead you around the city centre to answer questions, complete challenges and discover clues hidden in plain sight. So even if you’ve ventured down a street many times before, there are always new secrets to uncover!
While you’re hunting for clues around the city remember to keep your eyes peeled – and don’t forget to Look Up above shop level… you never know what you might find.
Starting outside the Council House in Old Market Square and finishing near Nottingham Castle, the trail covers around 3km and will take approximately one hour to complete.
To take part simply download the ActionBound scavenger hunt app from the app store and search ‘Nottingham Look Up’ or visit transportnottingham.com/lookup for further info.
Or if you’d prefer, paper copies are available from the Tourism Centre. Be sure to share your adventures with us via @MyNottingham on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
Councillor Rosemary Healy, Portfolio Holder for Transport said “Active travel is so important and as a council we’re always looking for new ways to get people walking or cycling. The Look Up! Adventure Trail is a great way to get active and have some free family fun this summer. All while introducing the little ones to the some of the hidden history of Nottingham.
“Since the easing of lockdown, it’s easy for people to slip into the habit of travelling by car, but Nottingham City Council is committed to encouraging as many people as possible to take up active travel to support a greener recovery from Covid-19. By leaving the car at home you can contribute towards better public health and reduced air pollution and carbon emissions. Nottingham is leading the way in sustainable transport alternatives, which will all contribute towards our goal of being a carbon neutral city by 2028.”
