KOMPAS is your trusty city exploration guide. We are to the modern city explorer, what a compass was to Marco Polo. We leverage technology to provide our users with personalised and curated recommendations on where to go, and what to do, guaranteeing you have continuously unique and exciting experiences.

We all remember the storybooks of our childhood, detailing the adventures of Alice, and Phileas Fogg. Who didn’t want to jump into the story and explore the worlds within the pages? When we grow up and start exploring the real world, that sense of adventure and excitement often disappears under the weight of lengthy and overly advertised guides, tourist traps, and fantastically underwhelming experiences. It’s time to put an end to that and bring back the excitement little you felt when you opened your favourite book.

With KOMPAS, you’ll no longer have to spend hours on guides loaded with sponsored content or simply wing it - and inevitably be disappointed. We’ll show you hidden, unique, and independent gems, at the tap of a button. You can plan your day with itineraries based on your interests and location, designed to optimise your time and money. Basically, the only thing KOMPAS can’t do is fly you there on a magic carpet. But don’t worry, we’re working on that.

Discover Hand-Picked Hidden Gems
Use the Explore feature to see what’s hiding right around the corner, be it local cats drinking tea, Peruvian cock fighting, or a mouth-wateringly delicious restaurant (if you’re more Anthony Bourdain than Captain Cook). To ensure all of our recommendations are truly outstanding, we work closely with in-the-know local explorers to find the best places.

Personalised Adventures
Have a few hours to kill, or like to set out into the unknown with a plan? Not a problem. Simply let KOMPAS know your interests, how much time you have, how much you’re willing to spend, and you’re ready to set sail. KOMPAS will create a personalised itinerary with bespoke recommendations that you can review and customise, matching exceptional local experiences to your tastes, time and budget.

Use KOMPAS to uncover the most inspiring hidden places in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Exeter, Berlin, and Munich, with more cities coming soon.

We’d love to hear about your adventures, what you think of KOMPAS, and where we should venture to next – feel free to get in touch at hello@kompasapp.com.

We’ve also completely reinvented the filter function, allowing you to quickly sort by distance, price and what’s open.

Customer Reviews

Great app for finding new places


This app is now my go-to for finding cool places to visit, eat and take photos of in London. I've really enjoyed everywhere it's led me to! Can't wait to use it on holiday in Berlin - it will save me having to do a lot of instagram research :)

Awesome app to explore any city!
