My first Virtual 360 Degree Video Tour of London

For the last few months I have been busy working out a vague plan to push my Ye Olde England Tours business forward.  How can you be a tour guide and make any money whatsoever without there being any tourists?

A few people around the world have done the odd live tour using their phone to stream footage  to whoever is watching or has paid but I always thought that was a little make-shift and I wanted to do something better and more immersive.

And so I give to the world our first ever 360 degree virtual video tour of London, this one in literary Bloomsbury. I picked this tour as hardly anyone ever visits here except perhaps to explore the cavernous British Museum but it has such a rich cultural history.

Perhaps as importantly it is Autumn and Bloomsbury is full of beautiful garden squares and if you want to visit them then the best times are either in spring, peak summer of autumn when the leaves are in colour.

It is based on my London Literary Tour (Bloomsbury) but whilst that is 2-2.5 hours long, this video tour is around 70 minutes in length.  It covers the same places and people but is obviously less in depth.  

As the video is filmed in 360 degree video as I walk and talk through Bloomsbury, you can scroll the screen and look in every direction as we visit the homes of some of the great writers in literature as well as great figures such as Gandhi, Thomas Coram and the wickest man in the world!

At just £11 it’s a great way to get a taste of a beautiful but rarely visited part of London whilst supporting you favourite blogger and travel guide 🙂 and from the comfort of your own home.

All you have to do is click on the link below, enter your card details into a secure international payment system and you’re away!

This is just the first tour out of many that I want to produce so in the end it will be like a mini-Netflix of tours.
