TeleMapics LLC, a privately held business focused on travel, tourism and location based services, announced today the launch of its London City Guide, one of a new series of online city guides featured on its travel web site http://www.ThereArePlaces.com. The new City Guide is available in the Destination Guide section of ThereArePlaces under the United Kingdom listing. The Guide reviews the top thirty tourist destinations in London, which are highlighted on well-designed, detailed, street level maps. In addition, the symbols identifying the locations of attractions on the maps are ÂclickableÂ and linked to descriptions of the attractions in the detail section of the guide.
The London City Guide categorizes tourist London into nine sightseeing areas, describing the attractions in each district, including public transportation access and the official web site listing current entrance fees and hours of operation. In addition, the London Guide includes descriptions of spectacular day trips to Windsor Castle, Hampton Court Palace, Kew Gardens and Greenwich. The Guide features descriptions of all attractions along with numerous photographs. Travel tips and hints that share Âinsider informationÂ to make it easier to tour London have been added throughout the Guide. Another unique feature of the London City Guide is its links to Transport for LondonÂs Journey Planner, which provides the best public transportation route between LondonÂs tourist destinations. Finally, a section titled London Know-how provides the travel details about London and the UK that first time travelers need to know.
ÂOur new City Guide is a great way for a person to get started planning a trip to London,Â said Mike Dobson, President of ThereArePlaces. ÂThe Guide covers the best places to visit in tourist London and describes, illustrates, and maps the attractions that should be on your list to visit if you are traveling to London. Our maps include street names and display LondonÂs top thirty tourist attractions at a generous map scale that makes them extremely readable. Best of all, you can click on a map symbol for a destination and be linked to the section of our London Guide that describes the destination. While using the text section of the guide, you can click on the map symbol to be shown a map identifying the location of the attraction.Â
