English Heritage Days Out (£0.69 – iPad, iPhone, Android)
This app, produced by English Heritage, will help you find castles, gardens and historic houses to explore. You can use the near me map or list to find out what’s around your current location, or the Day Out finder wheel which suggests places based on your selected region or county as well as any specific needs like somewhere that’s great for the kids.
