How VoiceMap Works

Focus on your surroundings, not the screen

VoiceMap’s audio tour app uses GPS to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Just install it, then download your tour and go to the starting point to begin your walk, drive, cycle, train trip or even boat ride.

Follow a route with turn-by-turn-directions

Tours follow a route from a fixed starting point. This is how we provide turn-by-turn directions. It also helps publishers tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. But you can use Resume to pick up a tour from the closest location whenever you like.

Listen as many times as you like

You can listen to your tours as often as you like using both the VoiceMap app and the VoiceMap website. Your access to tours doesn’t expire.

Take virtual tours anywhere

Just select Virtual mode in the VoiceMap app to listen to tours at home – or anywhere else. You’ll see the option after you download the tour. You can also listen to the whole tour here on the website.

Buy for less on voicemap.me and sync

Once you’ve purchased a tour, it’s added to your VoiceMap library. If you sign into the app using the same method you used on the website, you’ll have access to your full library of tours in both places.

Use VoiceMap offline

The VoiceMap app works entirely offline if there’s no data connection, so you don’t have to pay roaming fees. Just download the tour over WiFi before you get started.

Tips

Places to stop along the way

London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Parliament Square, Downing Street, Horseguards Parade, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace

Best time of day

Whilst it is beautiful anytime of day or evening, check opening times and days for locations that you would like to visit along the route. The Changing of the Guards at Horseguards Parade is usually twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, so it is worth checking if you want to visit the parade.

Precautions

Be vigilant in busy locations with your belongings as in any large city, and be extra careful of traffic when crossing roads. Remember that driving is on the left in the UK.
