Pocket Tours Scarborough is an historical guide of the beautiful seaside town. The app offers a journey through time to iPhone and iPad users and provides a guide and educational tool, all about the bustling seaside town that is drenched in fascinating history, offering a lot to both it’s residents and visitors. 


Working closely with the late John Rushton MBE, and other Scarborough historians, the Pocket Tours Team have produced a beautifully put together app, to guide and educate tourists and locals, alike, around the iconic town. 

The app brings together everything a visitor may need when arriving in Scarborough. All of Scarborough’s most iconic locations are included, along with countless points of interest, and almost endless facts and figures straight from our Scarborough experts, which you may find useful on a visit to Scarborough.The app uses all of the pioneering capability of the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to give the user the easiest and most informative experience possible.

All locations of interest are marked on the map giving accurate GPS coordinates along with a map marker that shows the user precisely where they are. Each viewpoint gives a full description of what can be found there along with a captivating historical account, audio and images. In other areas of the app fascinating videos, audio narration, and a wide range of spectacular still images bring historic Scarborough to life! 

The app can easily be used on the ground as an interactive map and reference point with many possible guided tours, however it also serves as an educational tool and a fascinating knowledge source in its own right. The app requires no 3G or internet connection as it designed for offline use.

Pocket Tours Scarborough will be available on the App Store from 30th June 2014 and can be purchased here for £1.99.
