Hereford Dino Trail Returns

Dinosaurs are returning to Hereford city centre this summer!

The Hereford City Life team are excited to confirm that they will be bringing back the popular Hereford Dino Trail and delivering more dino fun for families during the summer holidays. Get ready to roam with raptors and embrace your inner palaeontologist!

The interactive Hereford Dino Trail, which last year saw over 175 families taking part, will run from 26th July until 3rd August on the LoyalFree app. Use the app to explore Hereford and uncover prehistoric facts before collecting a prize from Hereford Tourist Information Centre. As an extra special addition to this year’s trail, each location will have its own dinosaur themed window illustrations too!

Building on last year’s successful Dino Days, the trail will be once again complemented by two fabulous family event days. On 19th August, Hereford City Life will be hosting their dinosaur activities on Cathedral Close as part of Hereford Cathedral’s Saturday Spectacular, followed on 26th August, by a Dino Day extravaganza in High Town. These two events will include Dinosaur stage performances, live music, roaming dinosaurs and a prehistoric mural workshop!

Rhiannon Burns, Marketing Manager for Hereford City Life commented, “we are thrilled to be able to bring back even more dinosaur fun to the city centre this summer. We hope to encourage families to spend more time in our beautiful city and discover all the incredible things on offer. We are proud to be working so closely with great local organisations, including Hereford Cathedral to make this summer extra special!”

All of Hereford City Life’s dinosaur activities are completely free to enjoy and more information about the events can be found at
