In order to cater for technology lovers with an interest in the nation's heritage, the National Trust has produced an iPhone app to help people find out more about its locations.
With 300 protected properties in its care, the National Trust is an institution that acts to preserve the UK's rich history. In addition to working with Google Street View in recent times, the organisation has now reached out to smartphone owners.
iPhone users will be able to check up on the nearest National Trust establishments and discover further information about each location, including opening hours and events.
The National Trust's Philip Ludgate said "The app is the perfect way to reach people who might never have come to the Trust before, or who might not realise the breadth of places in our care. (...) There's no better way to find the places near you than by using the new app".
You can download the National Trust app for free if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch and hopefully the program will also come to alternative smartphone platforms in the future, although nothing official has as yet been announced.
