Find and share precise locations with what3words

Exact locations can be really hard to describe, especially in places without street addresses like parks, beaches and car parks

That’s why we’re using what3words. It’s an easy way to identify precise locations. Every 3 metre square has been given a unique combination of three words: a what3words address. For example, our meeting point for [activity] can be found at [///word.word.word]

Enter this what3words address into the free what3words app to view the location and tap ‘Navigate’, to get directions with your favourite navigation app.

Get help faster in an emergency (UK only)

You can use what3words when it’s hard to describe where you need help in an emergency. Many UK services accept what3words addresses. To be prepared, download the free app now by following this link:
