A new project has been launched today (July 1) that will enable both locals and tourists to explore Cornwall using virtual reality.

360 Cornwall website and app is the result of a collaboration between local design agency 3deep Media and Aerial Cornwall.

The initiative is the culmination of over five years of work in which the team travelled the length and breadth of Cornwall capturing aerial 360° view of beaches, coves, harbours, towns, heritage sites and more.

Over 250 locations are now part of this virtual map of Cornwall which is available to explore on the new website as well as through an app, which is free to download on the Apple and Android app stores.

Co-founder of 360 Cornwall, Mike Postons, said: “We’re excited to finally release it to the public and let people explore and discover Cornwall in a whole new way.”
