Walking Tour App
Download the App to Take a Guided Tour
The Love Oundle Walking Tour app is designed to give an interactive experience around the historic town of Oundle.
The app allows you to walk around the town and to be guided by a local expert on points of interest around the town and surrounding area. Once you have downloaded the app you are able to select from a variety of tour types dependant on you interest. There will be both audio and pictures that allow you to visualise the building, tree or points of interest that is being referred to. Pictures are available if you see three dots alongside the audio file that is playing. The audio can be paused, replayed or forwarded.
The app makes use of GPS to show you places of interest close to your current location. (Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life so it’s best to switch off the app after you have done the tour). Audio is automatically triggered once you are within viewing distance of the point of interest. Those places that you have visited are then ticked on the list of audio files.
A suggested route is shown on the map, however you do not have to follow this route if you wish to choose your own order or just learn about some of the pints of interest. New tours will be added over time, so keep an eye out for our latest development.
