National Trust offers cool app that helps you find places to visit in the UK

The thing that is so interesting to me about England is that there are so many old places. In the US, we tend to tear down the old and bring in the new so you can't see much in the way of old buildings like you do in England. Sure, the US has some historical buildings, but it seems like England is packed with them.

If you are traveling to England, Wales or Northern Ireland on vacation or just want to learn more about, some of the historic buildings in the country a new app from The National Trust has landed for Android. The app lets the user search over 400 National Trust properties and if you are in England, you can get directions to the properties.

The app uses GPS to find cool properties in the area around you for you to visit. The info on the homes offers a bit of history and tells when they are open for you to visit.

    Good grief. The reason that the UK is “packed” with more historic buildings compared to the USA has little to do with an American desire to tear down the old. The UK simply has a much older architectural history. Hardwick Hall pictured there had already been erected, 30 years prior, when the colonists were just getting busy preparing Thanksgiving dinner with the natives.

    Logic guys, come on.
