Great Little Place has been setup to answer a simple to ask, but as yet hard to answer, question: Where can I go out that’s actually good? There are far too many average places out there; cloned High Streets, with chain restaurants and paint by number bars, seem to be literally round every corner. GLP (as we call it) is here to put an end to that. A home for nothing but great little places - wherever you go.

To start this little revolution against mediocrity, we want to create the world’s most trusted social guide to charming venues, based on personal and local recommendations. When it comes to places: brimming with character, unforgettable and individual is the order of the day. It’s a shout out for the little guys; the labours of love, the places with some soul, be they bars, museums, restaurants, galleries or just somewhere to enjoy a nice walk.

It’ll also be, importantly, a chance for people to share their great little finds with others; a real community – people helping each other out. The crucial difference between our service and other sites is that the wisdom of the crowd will decide what stays and what goes. True quality, not quantity - only great little places will make it on.

So far we& 39;ve brought together an online Facebook following of over 200,000 fans for different cities around the world to share their finest discoveries (with London& 39;s www.facebook.com/greatlittleplace being the biggest with 78,000 followers). We’ve currently got a bodged together little blog just for London, for now, which is our own labour of love. Having invested a fair chunk of our own money and endless hours, we now need to source the additional funds to finish off our website to get Great Little Place off the ground this summer. Our new website will:

  • Show you, wherever you are in the world, nothing but the greatest little places to go to, based on personal recommendations from the people who know it best, the locals. No more dull days or nights out. Not on our watch.
  • The design will be simple, intuitive and beautiful.
  • There will be no rubbish banner advertising clogging up the page or your experience. Great design and usability& 39;s our number one priority.

Your assistance is ludicrously appreciated.
