Minehead Maritime Mile
Discover Hidden Treasure
Visitors to Minehead who have downloaded the Minehead Maritime Mile app can unlock bonus content as they walk along the mile-long seafront. 3D models of some of Minehead’s iconic maritime history are brought to life with Augmented Reality, and archive videos reveal how Minehead used to look in yesteryear.
The App also features a quiz, with a prize for those who complete it, and souvenir selfie frames to share with friends, family and followers.
“Working with Dan from Audio Trails has been a pleasure. The Minehead Maritime Mile Trail App has exceeded expectations! … we are delighted with all features especially the augmented reality, it offers more interaction and interest for visitors to Minehead.”
Nicki Maclean, Tourism & Economy Officer – Energy Infrastructure of Taunton Deane Borough Council and West Somerset Council
“The Maritime Mile showcases Minehead’s history and heritage and is a great new feature to enhance what we can now offer our visitors – and encourage more people to enjoy Minehead. We are lucky to have a fascinating history that can be brought to life through harnessing the incredible technology that is available now.”
