Town walk around Exeter. Though there was some interesting buildings on route with history dating back to the 12th century it was difficult to stay on planned route as information seemed inaccurate so we had to deviate in places. The ship Inn was decent I had a meal and drink. The prices are reasonable and nice atmosphere. This is not my favourite route, hence 3 star review.

Cambridge is a charming town full of things to see. It’s so nice that highlights have been written in to the map of the app. Some portions of the walk are a bit dull but in general it will give you a thorough overview of the town and some scenery of the many colleges.

Followed this route last year. A nice walk round a fantastic city.

Another fantastic walk. app froze on Me and crashed my phone for a few minutes but got back on track. amazing city hike! many sites and potential fun detours on the way

It's a shame the walk doesn't advise a walk up the castle mound opposite Shire Hall which gives great views across the city.

We walked the majority of the walk, which we enjoyed. However the ferry mentioned only runs part of the year and cannot be relied on. We used the nearby bridge to complete that portion of the walk. ADMIN RESPONSE: Thank you for letting us know about the chain ferry. We have added a note within the walk directions, to let people know that they may need to use a bridge instead.

Really nice walk, never known a walk with so many pubs and churches on it. Let's you see all the different parts of Norwich
