Google Field Trip makes its way to the UK, helps you one-up the Queen with Buckingham Palace trivia

Want to learn a bit about that giant obelisk just outside your bedroom window? Or perhaps you're curious about the 16th century structure a few blocks away. As you approach, Google's Field Trip app will chime in with a bit of trivia, along with a photo of the site -- and, if you're wearing headphones or using Bluetooth speakers in your car, it'll even "read" that description to you. The app has been available to Android users in the great US of A since September, but it's now making its way to the UK as well, displaying content from local partners Dezeen,Historic UKHistorviusTime Out and Run Riot, among others. Looks like it's time to dust off those walkabout shoes and hit up the source link to snag the latest version for your smartphone.
