Using mobile data to look where you are going is one of the most annoying things a visitor can face - but do not worry as Worksop is one step ahead of the problem.

Free WiFi will go live this month for visitors in the town to help them get the most out of their trip.
Free WiFi in Retford and Harworth will follow by the end of the summer as part of a new initiative by North Notts Business Improvement District (BID).
Sally Gillborn, North Notts BID Chief Executive, said the free WiFi enabled visitors to get the most from their time in the area’s towns.
She said: “From the feedback we’ve been receiving, free WiFi in our towns is something that people want to see.
“Visitors will be able to receive information at any time about the things that really matter to them, such as what’s going on in the town, how to find specific retailers and what special offers are available.
“Getting this up and running as soon as possible really was a big priority for us and we’re sure visitors to the towns across the district will benefit hugely from accessing this great, free WiFi facility.”
Free WiFi was identified as a key priority for the town centres during a feasibility study and consultation carried out by North Notts BID.
Visitors will be able to use the network to keep up-to-date on special offers, promotions, local events and relevant information regarding their visit.
The free WiFi will be rolled out by Elephant Wi-Fi, a company that has already installed successful town centre Wi-Fi projects in Stratford-upon-Avon and Loughborough.
Sally said: “We will continue to work with local businesses across the area and are looking to launch further initiatives - including CCTV and rural broadband - in our industrial and rural areas over the coming months.”
