Larnach Castle Tour App

20 Jan 2014

Larnach Castle is one of Dunedin's top tourist attractions, but most of its historic displays are hands-off for visitors. The Larnach Castle Tour app is giving visitors a glimpse into the past, with video recreations bringing the historic home to life. The app takes visitors back to the late 1800s, when entrepreneur William Larnach walked the halls of the grand mansion. ARL and the Video Factory developed the app, using castle staff as actors, and ensuring details were as authentic as possible.

The images above are reduced-size iPod screenshots of the Larnach Castle Tour app, available at the App Store.

Visitors can hire an iPod with the app installed, or download it themselves before they arrive. The new programme is aimed at providing a more informative tour for independent travellers. Showing the castle's exhibits in use also helps explain things for the two-thirds of tourists from overseas. The virtual guide is also getting the thumbs up from visiting families.
