With the flight cancelations across Europe, Lonely Planet is providing its “London City Guide” App for free until Thursday so that the myriad paths of London can be traversed without getting lost! The three creators and ridiculous amount of users in the Lonely Planet community have compiled 2000 plus hours of research to provide this must-have tour guide for the ancient city.
Not only does the “Lonely Planet London City Guide” App hand over online and offline interactive maps with GPS plotting and photographs of the key locations, it also has hundreds upon hundreds of independently reviewed eateries, shops, sightseeing stops and places to sleep and instructions on how best to get around and do what is desired.
And there is history! The App is like opening an interactive encyclopedia where an introduction to London is given, “Sprawled endlessly along the banks of the Thames, London has been a beacon,” just below the search bar that easily brings up everything in the program. Scroll down and read up on how the print industry began on Grub Street, which was originally just the name of a single street – that is currently Milton Street – and now applies to most British literature. The history shared spans all of London’s vast years and arts!
Festivals, events, costs and even planning advice are provided within the informative guide. Get it while its free!
