Walking Trails


Walking Trail Design

The Public Art Company has been creating walking trails since 2003.

Working with Town and Tourism Managers and we provide the full walking trail design package; from concept to launch; Project Management, Mapping, Permissions, Planning, Signage, Cartography, Visitor Interpretation, Way Markers, Installation, Publishing and  Launch Event.

We take the stress out of creating a walking trail for your city, town or village by designing and managing it for you, we can even advise on funding applications to make your idea a reality.

Temporary Walks for Arts & Tourism

We also create non-permanent leaflet based walks.

These can be as arts projects and artist residencies, in the form of ‘walk as art’ that investigates spaces though art , often as part of events or conferences.

Or can also be a pilot for a permanent installed walk at a location, providing research into whether a walk would be practical, and content gathering and creation. It is also a good option in locations where permanent signage is not permissible or appropriate.
