The best virtual tours and events to experience this year
This year has seen a lot of conferences and events throughout many different industries be postponed or cancelled. For the UK, the Chelsea Flower Show went virtual back in March and in April the Grand National was cancelled and a virtual one was held in its place.
Over the past few months, there have been many sporting events affected in football, tennis, motorsports and cricket. Due to take place next month, Wimbledon has also been cancelled for the first time since WWII. Many fans of sporting events can place bets on virtual sports, instead of live games, such as football matches or horse races instead.
Virtual events to attend this year
While some events have been postponed until next year, some companies have decided to transform their events into virtual ones so that people around the world can network and attend talks and workshops wherever they may be in the world. Whether you are in marketing or sales, there are many professional events that you can attend virtually this year.

Virtual tours of historical landmarks
Right now while we cannot attend events or conferences in person, we are also unable to travel very far from our homes too. Many of us who have booked holidays have had to reschedule or rethink travel plans for the future. However, if you are missing going travelling, there are many great iconic sites and landmarks that you can enjoy from home too.
You do not have to be in Rome to tour one of Italy’s most popular attractions. The colosseum was once the world’s largest amphitheatre between the years 70AD and 80AD used for gladiatorial combat and other sporting events. With eighty entrances into the amphitheatre, you will need an excellent virtual tour to understand the structure of this magnificent architectural attraction. With Google Arts & Culture you can take a walk through the various levels with a 360 degrees view of the entire structure. There is also the option of an overhead 360 degrees tour of the amphitheatre you can watch too.
The prehistoric site of Stonehenge in the United Kingdom is an amazing view to behold as the site dates back around 5,000 years. Originally the site was used for cremations and the ring of tall standing stones were added around the year 2500BC. If you are a lover of history and archaeology, consider enjoying a 360-degree virtual tour of the Stonehenge site from the comfort of your own home with the English Heritage virtual tour. If you also like to experience the skies above the iconic site, then you can see great views and learn more with Skyscape.
Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
We are all familiar with the famous pyramids of Giza in Egypt, but you can get to learn more about these prehistoric sites through a Google Maps virtual tour of the area. The pyramids of Giza were constructed as grand tombs for the pharaohs of Egypt around 4,500 years ago. From Google Maps Street View, you can tour this iconic location without even leaving your home. You will be able to see two of the largest pyramids ever built: the Great Pyramid and the Pyramid of Khafre, as well as see the Great Sphinx too.
