What is The Snail and the Whale Trail?

17th March - 31st October 2018

Get lost beneath the waves in our SEA LIFE centre and meet sharks, rays, jellyfish… and a snail?!

In the undersea empire this year, there’s an unexpected creature with an itchy foot looking for a lift around the world. The ‘tiny snail’ from Julia Donaldson’s much- loved book, The Snail and the Whale, has gone on an underwater adventure – can you spot her in our brand new The Snail and the Whale Trail?

As you voyage through a world of reefs, corals and lost ruins, try and find the tiny snail as she journeys alongside our weird and wonderful sea creatures.

Spot the ‘tiny snail’ in all eight locations then enter Chessington’s exclusive prize draw! And that’s not all the Julia Donaldson fun to have at the Resort, with family favourite The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure back and brand new The Gruffalo Groove there’s plenty of adventures for all readers, big and small.


We hope this answers your question.
