This coming Bank Holiday weekend means that many people will be planning a weekend away in the UK, and Ordnance Survey has a number of tools for planning your perfect ‘staycation’. Using OS getamap, anyone can find great places to stay and eat, as well as a wide variety of attractions. There are also loads of ways to use the symbols on an OS paper map to find a huge variety of great things to do this Bank Holiday weekend. You could also use the great range of Ordnance Survey apps while out and about to find things in your area or check that you are still on track!
