If you're heading up to County Durham this week for the critical fourth Ashes test match, why not take a look at some of these apps for visiting the grounds in Chester Le Street?
As with all of the Ashes venues so far, the easiest way to keep up with the latest news and grounds info is to add @DurhamCricket on Twitter using your phone’s Twitter app.
See who’s talking about the cricket using the handle #Ashes, and share your experiences of the event with all of Durham CCC’s 13,000 followers!
Alternatively, take a look at the Durham County Cricket Club website to read all of the latest Ashes news or to discover how to access or contact the grounds.
With a great mobile-enabled site, you can ensure that if there’s anything to be known about the fourth test of the Ashes, you’ll know about it!
If you find yourself with any spare time in Durham or Chester Le Street during the fourth Ashes series, then the Trip Advisor app is one to download.
Whether you’re looking for hotels, restaurants or local attractions, simply use your current location, or type in where you want to go, and the app will draw up a list of destinations, with easy to read ratings and reviews.
Despite nearby Durham being a relatively small city, with so much culture packed into its cobbled streets, you’re surely going to want to discover the best tourist attractions to visit in between matches!
If you’re staying slightly further afield from the grounds in County Durham, or want to catch a glimpse of one of the North’s liveliest cities, the NewcastleGateshead City Guide app for Android and iOS is perfect.
The app allows you to search for hotels, bars and restaurants, and even local attractions and activities.
Apart from seeing the infamous Tyne Bridge and Angel of the North sculpture, the app gives you an insight into the lesser known places to visit during your time in the North East.
Getting to and from the cricket grounds for the Ashes series is also an important consideration for visitors to the city. Luckily the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground is located quite centrally, just a twenty minute walk from the Chester Le Street rail station.
Wherever you’re staying in the North East, the National Rail Enquiries app is great for planning your journeys to and from the grounds; with regular updates and live arrival and departure boards, the app will become your personal assistant when it comes to rail travel!
