Muncaster is delighted to announce the launch of their innovative new visitor app, a specially designed ‘hand-held’ guide to the castle, gardens and Hawk & Owl Centre that visitors can download on their own smart phones.
The app, available for Android and iOS devices, uses GPS and a navigable map so that visitors can track their location in the extensive Gardens and seek out interesting information including narrated audio clips and fascinating videos. There’s even surprising Augmented Reality experiences to discover!

The Castle tour has also had the digital treatment, with the app including a fascinating Castle Audio Tour to enjoy. The audio tour, narrated by the family members of this unique ancestral home, features all of the magnificent state rooms on the ground and first floors and includes memorable stories that will surprise and delight.
Detail – Developed with PEEL Interactive over several months as part of Muncaster’s Covid recovery plan the videos and audio inputs have been written and narrated by the Pennington family.
