Hi Graham,

No when I've done this I've just used the search button near the top of
the screen to put in the address.

Thanks,
Barry.

Thanks barry. Didn't knbow you could use around me to search for a
location.
Do you have to turn location services off to do this?

Graham,

If you have an IOS device you can try the Around Me app.  You can search
for a location then browse by category for things like Taxis Rail etc.

Hi all.

 

I'm looking for a way of taking any point and finding out what places of
interest are around it.  this could be useful in general but I'll give a
current example.

 

I have been asked to meet someone at the following venue:

 

The Trading Rooms pub, 522 London Road, Westcliff-on-sea, Essex, SS0 9HS

 

I want to know what the nearest railway station is.  Walking directions
or transport directions would be helpful but what I really want to know
is how far railway stations and bus stops are away.

 

Websites such as Transport Direct can be helpful for this of course but
you have to say where you are going where as what I want is an idea of
what's around so I can look up journey options before I go there.  any
thoughts on useful strategies or useful websites would be much
appreciated.

 

Regards

 

Graham
