Welcome to LocalPlaces.com, listing your favourite local attractions and local businesses throughout the UK.
LocalPlaces.com is a tourist information site with a difference, as it is also a business directory and more! As with any other tourism site, we list the travel essentials such as hotels, guest houses, pubs, restaurants, and local places to visit. However, we are also expanding our database with other useful information on the local areas, for example - retail shops and services such as dry cleaners and hairdressers, doctors and vets.
To make it easier for you to take a look around, we invite all advertisers to supply a photograph of their business, to allow you to build a view of the local area - ultimately down to high street level (given enough coverage of the area!). We also include a picture gallery for each area, links to local websites, lists of local events, and local travel information for example. All together, this information and the numerous pictures displayed will allow you to see the area and get a feel for the local character and ambiance of the area, perhaps before deciding to take a UK holiday or short break in that area.
Simply select the area you would like to visit on the map below by clicking on the postcode letters, or use the key to the right to view the entries for that area. The whole of the UK is covered but to view the potential power of this navigation and display why not visit our Mersea Island reference site within the CO postcode region.
If you own a business or attraction that you would like to list on this site please fill in the online form or contact the sales team. You can also nominate your favourite business, and we will contact them. Don't forget to add your local events - these listings are totally free of charge! Visit our events page to complete the simple form.
You can also support your own local area by sharing your views of businesses, attractions or the general area by clicking on the testimonial buttons aligned to every area and every business.
