New app will help visitors get the most out of their Cambridge experience
A new mobile app has been launched to help visitors to Cambridge get the best out of the city.
Visit Cambridge has unveiled a new mobile application which is available for free on iPhone and Android smartphones.
The Official Cambridge Visitor App will help visitors explore the city on the go by enabling them to access the latest and most essential information about Cambridge, such as attractions, shopping, dining options and events.
Emma Thornton, chief executive of Visit Cambridge, said: “We’re delighted to launch the app, which uses cutting-edge technology to improve the visitor experience. It provides useful tools like an Interactive Live Map that displays nearby attractions, services and experiences – all Visit Cambridge members will automatically feature.
“Visitors will now have an opportunity to experience the city in a new way, which will broaden its appeal to more technologically-motivated audiences.”
In addition, it will offer live official ticket sales for major attractions.
These include punting on the River Cam – allowing visitors the chance to purchase e-tickets on the go, without having to print them off.
