So, we've created information guides for over 1000 towns and cities in the UK - perfect for organising a day out where you live or whilst on holiday. It's a good start, but we want to add more and more great thing to do, which is where you can help us.
"What shall we do today?"
FIND: If you're anything like us this question pops up time and time again! Never Be Bored is our attempt at providing some answers whatever it is you like, and wherever you happen to be. Just enter a postcode or place name and a guide to the nearest location we have will magically appear. Choose the category you're interested in (details below) and see what's on offer.
SHARE: When you live somewhere for a while you get to know the hidden gems in the area. They're not always the ones that appear top in the search engines either, so many visitors are missing out on great things to do. By sharing your favourite attraction, cafe, restaurant, hotel, park, walk, theatre, leisure centre - basically anything! - other people will really benefit. Likewise rating places you've been from 1 to 5 gives people an idea of whether somewhere is worth checking out. The more people who add suggestions, the better the guides become.
We've split each guide into the following categories:
Visit - These are your big attractions. Museums, theme parks, art galleries, country parks, nature reserves, stately homes, gardens, zoos, beaches, basically the kind of things you'd plan a day out around. Think Alton Towers, London Eye, Legoland, Edinburgh Castle, Tate Gallery, National History Museum, Whipsnade Zoo, Sherwood Forest, Waddesdon Manor. And if it's a free attraction we tell you...because we're nice like that!
Eat and Drink - Here you'll find info on the best restaurants, bars, pubs, takeaways, picnic spots and cafes. So whether you're partial to Italian, Chinese, Mexican, Indian, Japenese or traditional English fare, we should have you covered!
Watch Listen and Nights Out - We all love to be entertained. Be it theatre, cinema, stand-up comedy, live music, ballet, opera, or a night out clubbing, we have details of hundreds of great venues and locations that will pander to your every entertainment need!
Sport and Leisure - If health and fitness is more your cup of tea we have details of gyms, leisure centres, swimming pools, aerobic classes, and a variety of specialist sport clubs such as scuba diving or bowls. For those with extreme sport leanings you'll find climbing walls, surfing schools, water sport centres, skate parks, bungee jump locations, dry ski slopes, snowboard centres, and even Zorbing! If you fancy something more sedate you'll find golf courses/clubs, cycle routes, walking guides and horse riding schools.
Shop and Treat Yourself - Definitely our most indulgent section! We'll let you know where the main shopping centres are, out of town retail parks and bargain-hunter favourite: designer outlet villages! Once you're all shopped out we'll guide you to a luxurious day spa for a well-earned massage and manicure. You'll also find details of hair and beauty salons and mobile beauty therapists.
Stay - To help you find the perfect night's sleep we have details of a wide range of accommodation including hotels, bed & breakfasts, guest houses, travel inns and hostels. So whether you're looking for 4* star luxury or budget accommodation, you should find what you're looking for!
Kids - Looking for ideas to keep the kids entertained? Look no further! We have soft play centres, farms, ten pin bowling alleys, cinemas, parks, playgrounds, swimming pools, leisure centres...more or less all the stuff we loved doing when we were kids!
This app is constantly updated to show the latest information about the Museums of Birmingham and the surrounding area.
We provide you with photos and videos, to showcase what is on offer in the museums and galleries of Birmingham, plus local news, and a wide variety of forthcoming museum events.
Visitors to Birmingham will be able to discover the large number of museums which celebrate the fascinating history and rich culture of the second largest city of the UK.
The Birmingham Museums are particularly strong in documenting the social history of the city when the city led the world into the industrial revolution, so if that interests you, this app will too.
We are sure that local residents will also find this app useful to discover fascinating Birmingham Museums they may not have visited yet, plan their days out, and attend events that previously (without the convenience of this app), they may not have even been aware were taking place.
Whatever your interest, from science to art, from ancient history to modern technological innovations, there is such a wide diversity in the exhibitions and galleries available in the city and surrounding towns, that it is highly likely that one or more Birmingham Museums will delight you.
Don't miss out. Get discovering these great museums, and start planning your days out, before it is too late.
