Travelling Whilst Staying Still

Whilst many of us need to stay at home at the moment, wanderlust and cultural curiosity don't need to stop. Our eyes and minds can travel from the comfort of our front rooms thanks to the amazing virtual tours the world's great cultural institutions have created.

Here are a few of the very best, the Construct Grand Tour.

Enjoy and stay safe

Construct X

Virtual Tours of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

The Nightwatch by Rembrandt has a fantastic 'experience' section where you are immersed into the gallery with guided narration.

Virtual Tours of the Louvre, Paris

The remains of the Louvre's Moat is a really good one, though the arrows take a little getting used to.

Virtual Tours of the Vatican, Rome

Raphael's rooms are totally insane.

Virtual Tours of the Guggenheim, New York

Like Google maps street-view, but for the inside of the Guggenheim.

Virtual Tours of the Uffizi Collection, Florence

A little more basic, but a fantastic insight into the Uffizi's masterpieces with explanations and guided 'online exhibitions'.

National Theatre at Home

You can now stream National Theatre productions from your home, showing this week are Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo in Antony & Cleopatra.
