IT'S TIME TO EARN YOUR SALT!
The Droitwich AR Trail (DART) App is a great way to learn more about the town and its history.
Choose a virtual guide such as Romulus Maximus, or the Salt King himself, John Corbett, who will pop up at Points of Interest (POIs) and give you some historical facts – and then challenge you with multiple choice quizzes.
Earn virtual bags of salt for every question that you answer correctly and even for just visiting a POI.
NEW VERSION COMING SOON, STAY TUNED!
