Great Little Place, or GLP, is a crowd-powered collection of nothing but the world’s greatest little places. They think dull chains are rubbish, so this is their shout-out for the little guy. It can be any type of place – bars, museums, restaurants, galleries, more – but all with that certain something special in common. And most importantly, it’s created and curated by ‘the people’, making everything on there a personal recommendation. Sort of like your digital friend in the know. (Thanks, Jamie C)

But another cool thing about GLP is its new rating tools at the bottom of every ‘place’. Gone are the five stars, and in their place: the charming dog, the individual fish, the uplifting monkey and the memorable elephant. They’re even interactive!
