A taste of special places on Google Street View

Child with a handheld GPS

You can take a 360 degree virtual tour of places we look after before your visit on Google Street View. We’ve teamed up with Google to showcase historic buildings and outstanding landscapes online to give you a behind the scenes view and help you plan great days out.

How it works
The panoramas have been captured using Google Trekker, a four foot, 40lbs backpack fitted with a camera which takes 360 degree pictures every 2.5 seconds. The images are then carefully stitched together to create a seamless view.
The Google Trekker is designed to capture imagery in locations that the Street View Car can’t typically reach. It’s already been used to visually map the nation’s canals and rivers and some of the world’s most inspiring places, both on land and under the sea.
What’s been added
You can currently take a tour of 33 places we look after on Google Street View along routes we designed with Google. Places include St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall and Wicken Fen in Cambridgeshire as well as Lindisfarne Castle in Northumberland and Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire.
‘At the heart of our charitable purpose is the principle of opening up the countryside and the historic homes in our care to everyone, forever,’ explains our head of digital Tom Barker.
‘It’s great that this technology will allow so many people wherever they are in the world to get a taste of what visiting some of the nation’s most beautiful places is like.'
