The Tullie House Youth Panel is excited to be launching their new augmented reality map of the city’s Historic Quarter. Their aim is to encourage visitors to the city to take the ‘cultural crawl’ from the train station to some of Carlisle’s historic gems!

They have used this modern technology so people can use their smart-phones to scan the pictures on the MAP and through the new and free Tullie House App the photographs on the page come to life as videos of THe Youth Panel ‘on location’ across the city. This gives people a sneak preview of what to expect if they are visiting Carlisle, and will hopefully entice more visitors from across the county.

The young people spent time at the Citadel Station, the Guildhall, the Cathedral, Tullie House Museum, and the Castle to discover some lesser-known facts that they could share to get people intrigued about Carlisle’s history. The App also has extra features including animations, and an igallery that shows some pictures of old Carlisle, alongside how it looks now. Search for ‘Tullie House’ in the app stores and download the FREE app today to see it for yourself!
