Street Tag

Tendring District Council has partnered with Street Tag to turn Clacton in to a virtual tag playground.

Virtual tags will be placed along popular walking routes and areas with green space from Jaywick Sands through to Holland-on-Sea, along the seafront and in Clacton town centre to encourage physical activity and in turn good mental health.

Families and other users will be encouraged to walk, run or cycle to the virtual tags and the digital monument which are placed on the Street Tag app map.

Those taking part in Street Tag collect points assigned to virtual tags, once they are within 40-metre radius of them, and steps can also be synced and converted into Street Tag points. These points add up in real time on the leader board, with prizes to be won at the end of each season.

Along the way you can experience the local heritage and history of Clacton through audio, video, pictures, and text on the augmented reality Monument Tours in the Street Tag App.
