Tourism apps Pocket Places now contain even more things to see and do

Personal tour guide mobile phone app Pocket Places has boosted the content of its apps for some of the UK’s key tourist destinations ahead of the summer of celebrations.

Guided walks, picture puzzles, extra tourist attractions, quiz questions and improved offline Ordnance Survey mapping are just some of the additions added to a number of apps in its Pocket Places series.

The apps feature audio-commentary about an area’s history, information about local tourist attractions, as well as suggested places to visit.

Three apps have just been updated with new information - Pocket Places Cornwall, Pocket Places Lake District, and Pocket Places Norfolk.

The additional content for Pocket Places Lake District includes a series of ten guided walks, suitable for all the family.

Starting from key tourist spots in the Lake District, such as Ambleside and Windermere, each walk can be completed within two or three hours.

Pocket Places Cornwall now includes details of the top ten beaches in the county.

In addition, picture puzzles have been added to both Pocket Places Lake District and Pocket Places Cornwall.

Meanwhile, Pocket Places Norfolk now has details of even more places to visit in the county with a new section on top attractions, including gardens, historic houses and heritage railways.

With information available in the palm of the hand, the Pocket Places apps are the perfect personal tour guide to some of the UK’s most popular tourist areas. More than 100,000 downloads have been made already.

Once downloaded, the app can be used wherever and whenever you like as it does not require an internet connection.
