> Hi, Judy

Whilst the UK points of interest (POI) database is significantly larger with 
version 3 as compared to version 2, sadly, it is no more accurate and still 
very patchy - at least in the areas I've tried.  In my home town of Edinburgh, 
for example, to date I've found no restaurants and there are a large number of 
establishments which either ceased to exist or re-located four to five years 
ago - places such as hospitals, so it's not your usual come and go businesses!

Therefore, until a more up-to-date UK POI database can be provided, I suspect 
the best bet for your trip is to hope that users create a plethora of their own 
points and submit these to Sendero.
