There are some
three main points to remember when using the gosomewhere site, and these should ensure that you get to the information
you want quickly and easily:
To access the main feature information click on the text
within the box (rather than the title).
All external links on the site open in an external window
And you can access the site map from any page on gosomewhere with the text link at the bottom of the page.
How to use the home page
The site has been created with a local focus, and so the
information on the site is relevant to the cities covered.
From the home page you can choose to go directly into
the information about a particular city by selecting it
from the drop down menu, or you can choose to go straight
to the main facilities for each location, the business
directory, hotel search, cinema search, and entertainment
Choosing a destination
Usually the first page you will come to on the gosomewhere site is the home page. To choose a specific city from
the home page, you will need to use the area entitled
‘choose city’, located in the centre of the
page. To view all the available cities click on the arrow
at the side of the box and they will appear. Move you
mouse over the city you want to select and click on it
using the mouse. Then click on the ‘go’ button
to the right of the box.
If you have already selected a destination and would like
to choose a different city, you have a number of options:
You could return to the home page using the ‘home’
button on the top left-hand side and select another city
from the drop down menu.
Or use the ‘change city’ option at the top
of the page. It will have the name of the city you are
currently in the box and to select a different city just
click on the small arrow next to the city name and then
select the city you want to go to from the menu. Once
you have selected the city you will be taken to the home
page of your chosen city.
Once you have selected a city from the home page, you
will be taken to the home page for that city, which offers
you a number of options. The main options for the city
is can be found in the main (left-hand) viewing panel
– namely: Visitor’s Guide – an overview
of the city Local Business Directory – a link to City-Visitor
one of the UK's top business directories, clicking on
this link will open a new window with the City-Visitor
site. Places to stay – Clicking on the
text will take you through to information about places
to stay in the city.
Or you can fill out the search criteria (date of first
night’s stay, number of nights and number of people
etc, then click on the 'check availability' and be taken
to a list of accommodation that will suit those criteria
in your chosen city. Go to the Cinema - Clicking on the text
will take you through to information about cinemas in
the city with access to cinema listings.
Or you could enter your requirements into search criteria
(Film name and/or Film type and/or film certificate) then
click on the search button in the bottom right of the
box and wait for your results to appear. Local Entertainment – Clicking on the text
will take you through to entertainment information for
your selected city and access to listings information. Shopping - Clicking on the text will
take you though to shopping guides for your selected city. Restaurants and Bars - Clicking on the text will
take you though to information about the restaurants and
bars in your selected city and access to online restaurant
Listed on the right hand-side there are some other information
options for your chosen city. These include: Weather – click on the text to get a detailed
ten day weather forecast for the city Events – click on the text for
information about events in the city City Travel – click on the text
for information on how to get around the city Places of Interest – click on the
text for information about the main places of interest
in the selected city. Local News – click on the text for news relevant
to your selected city, clicking on this link will open
a new window with the news information inside. What you Recommend – click on the
text to access the easy to use, what you recommend form.
Choosing any of the options from the city home page will
not only take you to the information you require but will
also reveal a blue navigation bar on the right hand side.
You can use this to access all the information that was
available from the city home page (except weather) and
more. Simply click on the option you are interested in
and the information will appear in the main (left hand)
area of the site, and the section you are in will be highlighted
in blue on the right hand navigation menu.
The sections listed in the navigation on the right hand
side menu are the main navigation options, however many
have additional features, which you can access by clicking
on the text of the features boxes. The breadcrumb navigation,
which can be found in the light blue bar above the main
page heading, will ensure that you always know where you
are in the site.
Using the Crumb
At the top of every page in the site, above the main page
title, there is a light blue bar, and this contains the
‘Crumb’. The crumb keeps track of the options
you have chosen as you move further into the site, so
you can always see how you arrived at the page you are
And if you want to go back to the previous page, you can
use this crumb because each word in light blue is a link
that you can click on to be taken to that page.
Navigating through London
Navigating through London is slightly different from the
rest of the site. As with the other cities on gosomewhere you can find out information for the city as a whole
in 'London at a glance', however this information has
also been broken down to cover the city in seven smaller
areas (North, North West, West, Central, South West, South
As you are navigating London you can access information
about another part of London by using the menu on the
right hand side. At the top of the navigation on the right
hand side you can access the home page of each of the
London areas. However if you are further into a city you
can access information on that subject for any area of
London without having to return to the home page. For
example, if you are looking at bars in London, under ‘bars’
in the right hand navigation you will see a list of all
the other London areas. Clicking on one of the other areas,
under bars in the navigation will take you to the bars
information for that section.
Using the map links
When a venue is mentioned in the main text of a city,
next to it you should see the word ‘map’ in
square brackets (i.e. [map]). This is a link to a map,
showing the location of the venue. The map is part of
an external site and will open in a new window. This site
is not part of gosomewhere and we are not responsible
Top level links
In the top left corner, underneath the main gosomehwere
logo there are five links:
Home – which will take you to the gosomewhere home page
Hotels – which will take you to a hotel search.
UK Facts – gives you some general information
about being in the UK, including driving, public holidays
Be Feature – will take you to a form which you
can fill in if you would like your business to be featured
And the Help button brought you here!
Recommending something / feedback
If you would like to tell us about something good in
a particular city, or give us feedback on the site then
