Description

INCLUDES OFFLINE MAP - NO DATA CONNECTION NEEDED

Everyone has used an audio guide inside a museum before. Well now you can have your own audio guide outside as you walk through the historic streets of London!

With 19 stops, WalkAppBout's City of London Guide is an historical walking tour app on your iPhone that takes you away from the crowds and off exploring some of the City of London's oldest, most fascinating but least known corners.

Using the iPhone's GPS and compass, your phone becomes your own personal tour guide, taking you easily from one stop to the next with turn by turn instructions. You can start when you want, finish when you want, and wander off and explore wherever you want.

The app includes a detailed audio guide written by people who are passionate about London's history and includes historical photographs and pictures to help you imagine what London was like in the past.

Some of the things that you will find on this walk include:

- pieces of the original medieval London Bridge
- why a knight's wife still causes a rose to be given to the Lord Mayor of London every year
- where today's modern coffee shops began
- the remains of the old Roman City walls
- London's oldest church
- historic markets
- site of the feared Newgate prison
- London's ancient livery companies
- where William Wallace (Braveheart) met his gruesome end
- the building inspired the design of today's wedding cake design
- one of London's oldest pubs, already old when Charles Dickens drank there.

Start: Monument underground station

Finish: Fleet Street, near Blackfriars underground station

Duration: The walk includes 19 stops and can be completed in 3 hours. However, to get the most out of your trip, we would recommend allowing extra time to stop off and explore some of the buildings and monuments that you will find on this walk.

There is no need to incur any costly data roaming charges with this app. The map is not vital to be able to use this app but for users with the latest iOS6 operating system, Apple Maps offers much better map caching for international travellers than the previous map software. Just connect to the internet using wifi, open Apple Maps and scroll around London. Your Apple device will save the whole map of London in its memory for offline use for the rest of your trip. Users with older iOS5 software will still find the app easy to use as the map is not at all essential to navigation.

Enjoy your WalkAppBout!

What's New in Version 1.4

Offline map now included when you download the app. No need to incur any data charges when you use the app.

Press a button and your location appears on the map as a pulsing blue dot. Press the button again for the map to rotate round to face your heading.
