Multimedia guide to Petworth House

In Museums, new content on May 13, 2011 at 1:28 pm

My latest app is now live in the iTunes app store. It’s a multimedia guide to Petworth House in West Sussex for iPhone and iPod Touch.

It was great fun to make – we visited a few times over the winter months to interview members of staff there and take still shots. We made another visit in the Spring with our presenter, Rob Curtis, to film the interior and exterior shots and footage of him interviewing the National Trust staff who work there.

The guide takes visitors around the house, moving from room to room. Rob welcomes you into a room, gives you a quick overview of what’s important or interesting and then leaves you to browse a few options which we’ve placed on the screen for you. So you can go at your own pace and take as much or as little in as you like.

The guide is £3.50 if you turn up at Petworth House – they’ll loan you a handset for the day. Or, if you’re a die-hard National Trust fan, you can even download it from iTunes for £2.99 and save yourself 51p. Plus you get to keep it afterwards too!

I worked on the guide with the lovely people at ATS Heritage, who I’ve written guides for before at the Ashmolean, Lambeth Palace Library and even a guide to a Stannah Stairlift factory.
