That it’s the site of buried treasure and the scene of a gruesome double murder that shocked the nation? Take a walk back in time and discover the secrets of Wymondham – the pretty market town that offers more than meets the eye.
Hop onto two different augmented reality adventures as you explore this famous market town, situated just off the A11 in South Norfolk.
Join the rebellion with ‘A Walk Through Time’ an AR trail that guides you around the town while enabling you to piece together Wymondham’s fascinating – and often gruesome – past. Using a mix of animation, AR, VR, minigames and photos; you'll witness a rebellion like no other. This experience is aimed at adults and teenagers, suitable for ages 12+, and takes about 60 minutes to complete.
‘Henry the Hare’ is an AR experience designed for younger children, helping them to stay entertained with a quest to help Henry (a dapper Hare statue who springs to life) find his lost belongings around the town. They'll learn interesting facts, answer quiz questions and have the chance make a new best friend! Easy to use, fun and informative, this is a great game for younger children who are supervised by an adult.
The app also contains a directory with useful information about the town, including suggestions for where to eat, shop, stay and explore – as well as events and offers. Plus, at a dedicated point in the trail, you have the chance to try a full VR experience about the Robert Kett rebellion, which ties in with the AR trail ‘A Walk Through Time’.
