In pictures: 26 colourful unicorns in Bristol we ticked off in under three hours

We joined the UnicornFest trail

Unless you’ve had your head in the sand over the past few days, you’ll have noticed dozens of unicorns have appeared across Bristol, mainly in the city centre.

With all different colours and patterns, the sculptures have been installed as part of UnicornFest to raise money for Leukaemia Care charity, and there are more than 50 in the city.

And so with the sun out, we decided to put cap and sunglasses on and see how many we can search out (using the UnicornFest app) in under three hours, starting in St Werburghs.

First stop was IKEA where I found the first unicorn of the day - Lunacorn - and a few unicorn foals painted by schools outside the entrance. I scanned the unicorn’s QR code on the Unicornfest which unlocked a cute animation of a vinyl unicorn doll in a box with Lunacorn’s name.

Next stop was inside the store where I came across the Attic Treasure unicorn before continuing my journey to the Memorial Stadium before completing a few stops on Gloucester Road and surrounding streets.

I then went through the city centre where a large cluster of unicorns live, before heading to Brandon Hill, Anchor Road, Redcliffe Way, Temple Meads and the Trinity Centre.

I met a lot of people from different age ranges, including families with grandparents, children and their parents and solo adventurers searching for unicorns.

Here are the 26 unicorns I discovered along the trail:
