Laurent Thion VR Photographer from Paris has during the last months been documenting the castle of Chenonceau a castle from 1513 built on the river Cher in Val de Loire.

The castle is open for public and it has been made large efforts to give the visitors the best experience. In 2004 they were the first to introduce iPods as audio guides.

However the only way you can experience the view above and some other views from the roof of the castle is by Laurent's panoramas. Make sure you continue from the fullscreen to the full Virtual tour and see the other panoramas.

2 panoramas from Cornwall England by Steve Pendleton

Cornwall is the most southern part of England and the Lizard is the most southern point.

At the east coast of the Lizard you find the small village Cadgwith where you still find a few fishingboats pulled up on the beach by wire ropes and a winch.

The village is also known for the Film Ladies in Lavender from 2004 directed by Charles Dance.

The coastline is dramatic with cliffs at most of the coastline but at Kynance beach you can also find a perfect white-sand beach hidden between the cliffs.
