The England's Historic Cities app tells the stories of the country's best-loved heritage sites. Using innovative new mobile technology, visitors can gain new insights into the history of our twelve historic locations.
Find our trigger points scattered throughout each heritage site. Then, using your phone camera, uncover augmented-reality displays, 3D reconstructions, and 360-degree panoramas that tell the unique stories associated with them.
Hear stories told by famous historical figures such as William Shakespeare, Countess Ela of Salisbury, Bede the Venerable, and the Seventh Viscount Fitzwilliam of Merrion. Uncover tales of political intrigue, archaeological discovery, scientific innovation, and grand adventure no longer lost to time.
This exciting new project is funded as part of the £40 million Discover England Fund.
