About GoThisPlace

About GoThisPlace: While the UK market is saturated with travel and tourism websites, offering articles and advice from every area, this patchy, sometimes user generated, often scraped content can make actual exploration into a tedious task more akin to futile foraging than a useful feature. GoThisPlace contains the single largest database of fun places to go within the UK, at over eleven thousand day time attractions, coupled with a unique natural language search, that actually works called Geo Text Search. This allows the Average Joe to find places they wish to go, using tools designed for the common man not computers, with the sound knowledge that all results are current and comprehensive.

Prove it. Sometimes it's hard for people to see that they are free of the old and tired free-text search paradigm so prevalent; you type keywords that are then matched to popular web pages. Whereas what you actually want is for your words to be 'understood' and answered. Best haunted castles within 50 miles of Cardiff. Yes your favourite search engine could return correct results for that request if somebody somewhere had the forethought to write that web page, and have it ranked, but what about; most popular beaches in Somerset or Dorset. A truly powerful search engine doesn't just match your words with a pre-existing webpage, it dissects your request into territories and types, rules and reason and answers it with attractions that actually conform - just as a human would answer: Horse riding in Hertfordshire or Herefordshire or Hampshire.

Along with a unique search GoThisPlace offers a consistent interface for your results; with a brief description, nearby attractions, opening times, admission prices, five day weather forecasts, links to further online information, user comments and questions.



GoThisPlace uses two cookies*

Permanent cookie (Set to last 1 year) for either auto login your user profile or save your home location.

Session cookie (Set to last 30 minutes) to facilitate communication between you and the website. We are aware that a few have cookies switched off, maybe because of corporate policy, so we can be used without detriment using cookieless technology; we instead store your session information in your viewable address bar instead.

User profile

While GoThisPlace can be used anonymously, meaning you don't need to create a user and login in to use us. Certain action can only be performed when logged in; creating user posts, voting, gaining kudos.
We do request user information that is considered private information; Home location and email address.
We only ask for your Home location so that distances in searches can be correctly calculated. Obviously if you don't tell us where you live, how can we tell you have far it is from your house to anywhere. Because all distances are rounded to the nearest mile or kilometre it makes little difference if you only specify a general area as your home location. Maybe use a major road intersection close by your house - motorway junction for example. This will give you near identical results that can be used within GoThisPlace while protecting your privacy. Of course, we treat this information with the strictest privacy rules and would never give this to any third party, that includes website advertisers.
With emails, we only ask for this information, so that if you forget your password, we can re-email your password to you. We might use emails to communicate other security information with you, for example, if we believed someone else was using your GoThisPlace account.


We use two affiliate advertising networks; Google AdSense and TradeDoubler.

Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on this site. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to you based on your visit to this site and other sites on the internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy

TradeDoubler, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to remember what TradeDoubler Advertisers ads you click and reward us for purchases you make thereafter (The length of time afterwards varies, but 30 days to 180 days would be norms). GoThisPlace chooses which type of ads from which advertising company to display and when, though the original advertising company can and does change the actual design, content and landing page
