New app for the Cotswolds AONB

8th April 2015

English Tourism Week is a week-long celebration of events from 14 -22 March showcasing the quality and vibrancy of the visitor experiences and the value our industry brings to our nation. As part of these celebrations The Cotswolds are launching a brand new phone app to increase promotion of the area.

People from around the world have commented on the usefulness and high quality of The Cotswolds Official Visitor Guide and this has led to a high demand for a FREE downloadable version to be made available using an iPhone and Android handset.

Cotswolds Tourism has been working with technology experts to develop an app which provides an interactive guide to The Cotswolds at the touch of a button. It is a comprehensive directory, providing users with an easy way to discover the best sights, attractions, events, accommodation, food, drink and shopping in the Cotswolds area.

Here are some of the great features which users of the app can enjoy:

  • Search accommodation and find where to stay
  • Learn about what to see and do in The Cotswolds
  • Find out what's on in your local town or the wider area with our events guide
  • Search restaurants, cafes and bars and get directions to their door
  • Find your favourite high street shops and fabulous independent boutiques

Featuring rich content, high quality images, opening times, prices and ratings, users will be able to get directions to attractions from their current locations using GPS or Google Maps.  They will also be able to save places of interest as ‘favourites’ and build their own itinerary.

Anna Sanders, on behalf of Cotswolds Tourism, is very excited about the launch of the app which has been timed to coincide with English Tourism Week:

“This is what people have been a long time waiting for and the apps are now available to download from the destination website. “We are confident that The Cotswolds app will be easy to use and - because the data is stored in the app itself - it will also be very economical as far as phone data charges are concerned. This means that users will only need to access the internet if they want to use GPS or download photos.”
