Designed by artist and children’s author Oliver Jeffers, a 10km three-dimensional sculpture trail of the solar system comes down to Earth in Cambridgeshire. Stretching from Midsummer Common along the riverside finishing at the Woodland Trust’s Cow Hollow Wood in Waterbeach, Our Place in Space reflects the size of each planet at scale and the distance between them, starting with the Sun and ending at Pluto.

This event sends you soaring into the stars to find new perspectives and reconsider what it means to live life on Earth.

At the end of the trail enjoy a well deserved refreshment at The Bridge in Waterbeach.
