If you’re tired of lockdown walks to your local area or you’ve exhausted Netflix and Disney+, then why not take a virtual visit to some of the world’s most spectacular places? So many museums, zoos and theme parks are offering virtual tours to combat the effects of social distancing and feelings of ‘stir-craziness’. Spicers of Hythe have put together a list of the very best virtual tours for you to visit from the safety of your sofa…
Port Lympne, Kent
We couldn’t put this list together without mentioning local Kent-based Port Lympne, you can watch Port Lympne’s Cubcam daily, which shows a live stream from their lion enclosure.

British Museum, London

Many of us have always wanted to visit Paris and the Louvre is normally on top of the list of must-do’s when visiting the city of love.

Their virtual tour offers you the opportunity to see the outside façade and all the museum’s exhibition rooms. Visit here.
