Walkers in southern England have the chance to work up a thirst for their post-walk pint on a series of new pub walks that can be downloaded and followed on smartphones.
Henley brewer and pub operator Brakspear has made its recently-launched Pub Trails series available on ViewRanger, a free GPS app that pinpoints your precise GPS location and overlays each route on detailed maps that can be used without phone signal.
Each trail starts and finishes at one of the 10 Brakspear pubs listed below, and contains interactive maps, detailed directions, useful local information and photographs of key points on the walk. With three routes from each pub, including different distances and difficulty levels to suit every type of walker, there’s no excuse not to stretch your legs before enjoying a well-deserved pint.
Brakspear chief executive Tom Davies said, “Many of our pubs are located in beautiful spots and we know our customers like to explore the countryside before having a refreshing pint and a bite to eat.
“Our Pub Trails are already available in our pubs, and to download from our dedicated website, so launching them as an app download extends their reach, particularly to younger walkers. This is a great example of new technology enhancing the experience of a centuries-old tradition of the British pub and country walking, and we’re delighted to be offering it to Brakspear customers through our partnership with ViewRanger.”
