Did you know Wymondham is the birthplace of one of the biggest uprisings England has ever seen? That it’s the site of buried treasure and the scene of a gruesome double murder that shocked the nation? Take a walk back in time and discover the secrets of Wymondham – the pretty market town that offers more than meets the eye.
This app contains two different augmented reality trails to help you explore this famous market town, situated just off the A11 in South Norfolk. Plus it offers handy visitor information, from places to eat to places to stay.
‘A Walk Through Time’ is an AR trail that guides you around the town while enabling you to uncover AR animations, videos, facts and photos that bring to life the stories of Wymondham’s fascinating – and often gruesome – past. This trail is aimed at adults and teenagers, suitable for ages 12+, and takes about 60 minutes to complete.
‘Henry the Hare’ is an AR trail designed for younger children, helping them to stay entertained with a quest to help Henry find his lost belongings around the town, as well as some interesting facts and quiz questions to aid learning. Easy to use, fun and informative, this is a great game for younger children who are supervised by an adult.
The app also contains a directory with useful information about the town, including suggestions for where to eat, shop, stay and explore – as well as events and offers. Plus, at a dedicated point in the trail, you have the chance to try a full VR experience about the Robert Kett rebellion, which ties in with the AR trail ‘A Walk Through Time’.
Whether you’re new to Wymondham or a long-term resident, this app is an essential companion to helping you see the town in a whole new light.
Please note: this app is designed to work on most modern handsets that have a camera, compass and GPS.
This app will need to be downloaded and opened before your visit to Wymondham as additional content is required.

Fun activity & day trip
We had a really good time walking around wymondham, the graphics are amazing and quite magical. There was lots to see at different points, lots of historical facts we never knew about this area! Great activity for all the family plus get to stop in shops and have a bit of cake along the way. Check out the VR headsets at heritage museum - fantastic experience for free :)
Fantastic trail around the lovely market town of Wymondham. Easy to use and very interesting. Make sure you check the website to make sure your device is compatible before you arrive. It didn’t work for everyone in my party.
It wouldn’t pick up the location at all on my phone so I couldn’t use the app at all. It worked on my partners older iPhone for half the trail then crashed and wouldn’t work again.
