English Lake District [3D Tours]

Lake District Information [3D Tours]

English Lake District  3D Map Helvellyn
"The site is intended to offer information about this area, in addition to providing maps, views and virtual tours of its villages, lakes and mountains. These are intended to enhance your appreciation and enjoyment of the Lake District."

The site also uses Google Earth to overlay walking routes in addition to information of mountain features on many of the Lake Districts Fell.

"This site uses the Google Earth Plug-in on a number of pages. This innovative software presents us with a fresh way of viewing the Lake District from a range of new perspectives. You can view 3d image models of the mountains and valleys, and take guided tours around the villages and lakes. You are also free to visually navigate around the district going wherever you choose. I have found this a great way to get to know Lakeland in intricate detail."

*Google Earth Browser Plug-in Required.

A good starting point
