No city in the world has hosted more famous and illustrious historical characters than London, England.

"...add a bit of structure to your jaunts, try this well-designed app that guides you to nearly 2,000 of them: with offline maps and more detail about the people who’ve been immortalised in plaque form"
Best iPhone and iPad apps, The Guardian

"If you don't know about the blue plaques then listen up. They are placed all over the country,... London, as you might imagine, has plenty of them. About 2,000 to be slightly more precise. The app is an interactive guide to them all, all layered over a map that you can access regardless of whether you're connected to the internet."
