Virtually London is by any standards a tastefully designed and a beautifully constructed web site, providing its users with a unique on-line experience.
It is the colour that first grabs your attention. The several shades of cool blue certainly have quite a profound impact, giving the web site a sophisticated, chic feel.
There is a certain elegance to its busy and yet minimalist layout. Although the site offers quite an extensive range of choices, the design is neat, logical and definitely user-friendly.
The information provided is concise, clear and to the point ?Eno words are wasted here.
On the right hand side of the spread is a ‘useful link?Ebox. The links really are fantastically useful. These alone could make for an excellent site, providing a traveller with all the information they should need to plan a trip ?Ea traveller’s dream!
Click on ‘Local Weather?Eto be taken to the online BBC Weather Centre.
The ‘Tourist Board?Eoption links to the official web site for London Tourism whilst the ‘Virtual Travel Directory?Elink is an excellent information source.

There also is a ‘flight?Elink, so you can check out any availabilities. My personal favourite has got to be the ‘city maps?Elink. Here you can access maps for specific destinations/ areas ?Eso now you never need worry about getting lost abroad. You can also access post-codes, telephone-codes and much more. Oh, the joy of modern technology.

As if all that wasn’t enough, Virtually London offers travellers the opportunity to visit and experience all the beautiful and famous locations that London has to offer without having to leave the comfort of your own home. With an extensive collection of prime locations, the user simply needs to type their desired destination into the search engine. Next click on the enlarged image and sit back while Virtually London guides you through the streets, sights and highlights of the world`s most exciting city. With such advanced technology that the product is delivered on to your screen instantaneously.
The dynamic imaging from iPIX gives travellers a 360 degree panoramic view of each image, providing a richer online experience. Each shot manages to capture the moment to the extent that the images are quite atmospheric. For example, the slide ‘string quartet?Eis taken in the midst of a show in Covent Garden. You actually feel as if you are there. Other images to check out include hotels, museums, parks, famous streets and landmarks.
This site provides a unique Internet service. Although probably designed for travellers, Virtually London is an excellent resource for any individuals interested in seeing and even feeling the hustle and bustle of the magical city of London.
