The trail has already drawn admiring looks with its wide range of sea-themed subjects from a shark to shipwrecks which can be seen from the town's Oddfellows Hall along the east promenade and back towards the west beach and clifftop grassed area.
On Wednesday, December 3, BBC Look East weather presenter Julie Reinger will open the attraction at 11am.
