BRINGING IT ALL TO LIFE
To make this experience even more interactive, we highly recommend using the ‘England Originals App’ (available on the App Store on an iPhone or iPad, more info here) which includes exciting features, taking advantage of cutting edge augmented reality technology to provide engaging and immersive content for each of these itineraries.
When in-destination, augmented reality ‘portals’ will give users access to places otherwise off-limits – such as locked rooms, exclusive city views or locations outside of the city centre they may be interested in visiting. These virtual doorways will be accessible in selected parts of each city, and act as an immersive way to add value to the visit experience.
