Best places to visit when on lockdown.

14 April 2020

With these incredible 3D tours, you can travel virtually anywhere you like even when on lockdown.

With the dreaded virus galloping across the country we are asked by the government to stay at home. Rightly so, as this will save lives and protect the NHS through these unprecedented times.

One of the things we all find we miss the most is visiting new places. Especially now, with the weather picking up, we'd like to get in the car and go for a little road trip. As we know, it's not quite possible at the moment but there is a solution that you might quite like. You can visit some famous destinations for free, from the comfort of your own sofa. It'll save you a bit of travelling. Your kids won't constantly pester you with 'are we there yet?', and you won't have to stop at services to stretch your legs.

Ok, let's go then...

Buckingham Palace

Probably one of the most incredible and most visited locations in the world, which is also the home to our very own Royal Family. With 15 million tourists visiting the residence of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II, Buckingham Palace is by far the most popular tourist attraction in the UK. And you can now visit it from the comfort of your own sofa by clicking the link below. With no queueing!
