Family Christmas Walking Trail

Explore Southampton with our Free Family Walking Trail

Explore Southampton with our free Christmas walking trail, which is back bigger and better than ever!

Follow the trail through the North Pole, South Pole or both, on an adventure around the twinkling city centre. Look out for penguins and polar bears on your way, they will show you the clues. Find all the clues and unscramble the festive phrases to claim your free prizes*.

The trail is designed with families in mind and it should take around 45 minutes to complete each trail or 1.5 hours if you do both together. You could do the North Pole Trail one weekend and come back to complete the South Pole Trail.

There is an additional prize draw to win a £50 Westquay voucher. To enter participants will need to complete the trail feedback form with their answers and complete their contact details to enter. You can view the full terms and conditions of the prize draw here.
