The Starfish Trail follows Stella the Starfish around Sutton Harbour, with trail boards located on the water’s edge taking you from the heart of the Barbican to the National Marine Aquarium (NMA) and Rockfish, which are located on the other side of the water.

There are eight boards along the trail, each with a question to answer. Answer all eight questions on the trail leaflet to claim offers immediately from local businesses and then submit your answers and details online here to enter the monthly prize draws.

Trail leaflets can be picked up from the Tourist Information Centre on the Barbican and the NMA in Sutton Harbour, or downloaded online here.

The trail is currently planned to run until November and there are a range of prizes up for grabs each month, including a Sony PS4 console and an Amazon Fire Kids Edition 7 inch tablet. The NMA has also donated prizes ranging from cuddly toys to a family annual pass and a ‘Sleeping with the Sharks’ experience!

Josh McCarty, Head of Marketing at the NMA, said: “At the National Marine Aquarium we are all about connecting people with the oceans, and this new trail mobilising families to walk around Sutton Harbour is a great way to engage children with the marine world, and also compliments a return trip on the ferry or foot crossing over the lock gate. We hope visitors will learn some fun facts about our oceans through the Starfish Trail and be inspired by Britain’s Ocean City.”
