by Oliver Hill

Innovative new app helps families to discover thought-provoking and educational days out in the UK

Imagine Publishing’s flagship magazine, How It Works, the popular science and technology magazine, today announced the launch of its latest mobile app, Great Days Out. The new app is aimed specifically at the How It Works readership of 24-45 year old active, inquisitive individuals and families, and is designed to highlight interesting and unusual places in the UK that guarantee a ‘great day out’.

Showcasing thousands of museums, art galleries, castles, palaces, parks, National Trust and English Heritage centres, zoos, railways, cathedrals and much more, users of the app are spoilt for choice with thousands of relevant recommendations. How It Works’ Great Days Out even helps families to discover mysterious, obscure and interesting places not normally found on a map, both near their current location and also further afield!

Click on each venue/event to access useful information such as photos, opening times, entry prices, contact details, and many other services at the location. The app is regularly updated with new places to visit making it the perfect companion for the How It Works reader.

Dave Harfield, Editor in Chief said of the app: “If How It Works is the magazine that feeds minds then Great Days Out is the app that stimulates and excites minds through amazing first-hand experiences. If you want to find unique and interesting activities for your family that are both inspiring and educational then this app will provide everything you need for truly great days out. No family should be without it.”

Imagine’s Great Days Out app marks an exciting innovation where all content is tailored to support educational and informative family days out, and ensures all the useful information on that inspirational family trip is never more than a tap away. The app is available from today on the iTunes app store for FREE. More information can be found on the How it Works Twitter feed – @HowItWorksmag
