    For those of you interested in England's built heritage, there are 2 great weekends in September when you can visit places for free.

    For everywhere outside of Greater London the Heritage days set around the 2nd weekend in Sept can be viewed online via this website. Heritage Open Days. I'm afraid there isn't an app for this.

    On the 3rd weekend of Sept, buildings in Greater London are opened for free access. There is a paid app for this. The 2013 version is yet to be released. However check this link Open House London. I don't have any photos toots of past visits, but I can assure you that you will get a great welcome from helpers and staff at the buildings.

    In fact you should get more sizzle for you sterling! :)

    Thank you! It certainly helps. :)

    I had already bookmarked the visit London website before, but not yet detected the free attractions. I'll take a look at them.

    Google Maps is now available for iPad. It is free in the App Store.

    You need to check the help pages about accessing street view. It's pretty straightforward to access.

    Sent from my iPad using iPF

    ADDENDUM. A cool feature is the ability to unlock the iPad when in street view. Once unlocked (touch icon with 2 curved arrows bottom left of screen) you can pan while turning the iPad around. :)

    Haven't had a chance to try the one I downloaded. Everyone I've met speaks English. Probably because I'm doing the touristy things. I love art museums.

    There is a very useful website with free tools for calculating distances between 2 points, time zone tools etc. Free Map Tools
    Afaik, they haven't developed an app yet. I have asked them the question :)
