Using the Audio Guides

The audio guides are divided into tracks and once you have loaded the mp3 guide onto your MP3 player it's very simple.

In the walks:

Track 1 tells you how the mp3 guide works.

Track 2 tells you how to get to the start.

Track 3 begins at the starting point and your guide tells you about the sights around you.

Each of the subsequent tracks begins with very simple directions to the next place. You then press pause while you walk to that place.

You press play when you arrive and we will tell you about what you can see around you and so on for each chapter...

If you happen to lose your way then go to the beginning of a track and you will be given the name of the stopping place with clear directions to it.

In the guides, each track has a short title with the name of a place or a topic and you click the one that you want to listen to.

The map

On each page you can download our unique map by clicking on the picture of the map underneath the "View Preview" box.

The map marks all the places mentioned in the guide or walk.

Although the directions on the walks are very clear it is worth printing the map off and taking it with you since it shows exactly the location of the start and finish and of each stopping place.
