Innovative new 'Digital Bridgend' app brings history to life for the whole family

Porthcawl 056 R 500

Bored by the same old history tours? An innovative new 'Digital Bridgend' app from Bridgend County is set to revolutionise how visitors to the South Wales destination uncover its fascinating history.

The app, which is available to download to both Android and Apple smartphones, utilises the latest augmented technology to offer visitors to Bridgend County hours of unique and exclusive content including videos, games, interactive treasure hunts and more.

There are a total of 17 'experiences', set across six locations throughout the county, from the golden coasts of Porthcawl to the rugged Llynfi Valley. Simply download Digital Bridgend and the hub of your choice to your smartphone before you arrive, head to the hub start point and open app to get started. It will then act as your own personal tour guide, teaching you about local history as you track dinosaurs, smelt iron, uncover lost treasure and hunt ghosts.

There's also a separate 'History Window' feature, which allows users to gaze directly into the past to see how some of the destination's top attractions would have looked hundreds of years ago.

The app is free to download and is the perfect way to keep children entertained during the summer holidays - tapping into their love of technology while also helping them explore the great outdoors and to learn a little something along the way.

Karl Schmidtke, Chairman of the Bridgend Tourism Association, said: "We are really proud and excited to unveil this innovative destination app. We hope it encourages families to delve into our fascinating history whilst having a great deal of fun at the same time."

The Digital Bridgend app was created by Bridgend County Borough Council in partnership with Visit Wales, the European Regional Development Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund, while over 40 heritage organisations and community group were involved in the app's development.

To download the app, search Digital Bridgend on Google Play or the Apple App Store.
