GoGoDiscover features 79 individually designed sculptures comprising 55 T.rex and 24 Steppe Mammoths, each decorated by artists from across the country. 

The T.rex sculptures will be located around Norwich city centre, with the cretaceous creatures set to appear at popular sites including Chantry Place, Norwich Cathedral, The Forum, Castle Quarter, and Jarrold. 

GoGoDiscover 2022 is the second half of a two year trail of Jurassic proportions. In 2021, 21 T.rex appeared in Norwich to accompany the Dippy on Tour exhibition. And now they're returning,though this time they’ll be bringing many more friends to help create Break’s most mammoth sculpture trail to date!


Joining them is a humongous herd of 24 Steppe Mammoths, which will appear outwards from the city centre in towns and popular hotspots such as:

King’s Lynn, Holt, Cromer Pier, Holkham, Carrow Road, the Norfolk Broads, Hemsby and Pensthorpe.

Following the 1990 discovery in West Runton of the most complete skeleton of a Steppe mammoth ever found in the Britain, North Norfolk's Deep History Coast will be celebrated with the mammoth scuplture trail.   


GoGoDiscover is delivered by East Anglian charity Break, in partnership with Wild in Art. The presenting partners for the project are Norwich BID, Chantry Place and ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure.

The project is hoped to raise valuable funds for Break, which makes life better for children and young people who are on the edge of care, in care and leaving care. All support of GoGoDiscover helps to stamp out the mammoth expectations faced by young adults leaving the care system. While the trail is free for anyone to join, there are a range of opportunities to help raise funds for Break:

Trailgoers wanting to locate and identify all 79 of the prehistoric visitors can download the new GoGoDiscover app (£1.99) from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Pick up a GoGoDiscover trail map (suggested donation £1) from a variety of trail map hubs including The Forum, The Royal Arcade, Jarrold and Break retail shops across the county.

Join the sponsored Mammoth Hike and Beach Clean from Holt to Cromer (Sunday 3 July 2022). This 13mile walk ends with a litter pick on the 1.5mile stretch from West Runton to Cromer. This route takes in three of the trail mammoths.

Buy a raffle ticket (£5 p/ticket) to be in with a chance to win your own medium sized T.rex! 

Pick up the collector’s sticker-book and associated stickers, in partnership with Archant and Eastern Daily Press and browse the range of GoGoDiscover merchandise.

Bid for your own dinosaur at the GoGoDiscover auction on 28 September 2022. Successful bidders get to take their chosen dinosaur home after the trail has finished!
