Love Tamworth

A new family friendly ‘Love Tamworth’ augmented reality trail offering mini games and challenges in and around Tamworth town centre is now live.

The trail, delivered by Tamworth Borough Council, encourages people to explore the town centre using an augmented reality app to play simple family friendly mini games. Embark on the trail to explore the town and seek out 11 virtual Love Tamworth tokens by completing mini games at key locations, collect all tokens to be in with the chance to win a prize.

The app comes with a fully interactive map and guide on how to access each point. Simply follow the map to the correct locations then scan the location with your phone and wait for the magic to happen!

People are invited to spend a couple of hours in the fresh air to experience the excitement of the latest technology and discover the 11 AR locations on the trail, and people will hopefully see things in the town that they’ve not noticed before.

game on phoneAny age is welcome to take part in the app, but a smart phone is needed to take part.

Complete the quest to win a small prize!

When your quest is complete, and you have all 11 tokens, visit the Tamworth Castle Gatehouse shop (near Nationwide Building Society) to claim your quest prize. If the Gatehouse shop is closed, please visit the castle reception. Prizes can only be claimed during normal castle opening times.
