Fly from your sofa!



I have just returned from a couple of days in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside around Symmonds Yat which has a history stretching back as far as the Iron Age! It's a fascinating place with something for the history lover, the walker, the camper and the thrill seeker all in the same place. I'll be sharing the photos and history in a blog for our 'Spotlight On' series so be sure to subscribe to receive it directly into your inbox.

New Trail for August

**Announcing our new trail for August**

A new trail is added to our collection each month. This month we are introducing the first of our single location trails.

Historic Bath

(This trail will be available at the end of August)

You spoke - we listened!

Actors at Shakespeare's Birthplace in Stratford upon Avon

Education coach and Mother, Lucy Parsons, had a fantastic day learning about Shakespeare on her day trip to Stratford upon Avon. She kindly left us a review and mentioned that a map of the town with the places pinpointed on it would have helped. So, we've added one! It is now in the 'Shakespeare: A Man or Words' trail available to download from the website.

If you have already downloaded the Shakespeare trail just log back on and download the new version at no extra cost.

It's a Location Sensation!

Have you tried out our new map feature?

Search our map of the UK to find a trail in an area you want to visit.

Bye for now!
