Bolton Castle is one of the country’s best preserved medieval castles; originally built as one of the finest and most luxurious homes in the land, the castle bears the scars of over 600 years of fascinating history.

York Apps part of our Entertainment and have average installs from 10 to 50. Last Update Dec. 18, 2013. Google play rating is 65.0. Current verison is None. Actual size 21.0 MB.
Poor download of multimedia files If you charge for an app you need to provide bandwidth for the tour files. Took about 10 attempts on fibre optic band to get the adult tour. Very poor. App however seems OK.
Very enjoyable Thoroughly enjoyed our tour round, fantastic castle to explore and the guide really brought it to life. Recommended
Very disappointing Installed this on my daughters Tab3 prior to a visit, but failed to uodate or download media files. And to top it all, failed after the 15 minute refund window!!! I feel for Bolton Castle as the responsibility will be with history2go.. for me they came and went at the cost of 2 quid...
wonderful a much more comprehensive tour than I've seen at other venues, and visually very good. children's bit also useful to keep small people entertained
