Supercharge your business’s visibility with a 360° Virtual Tour
With Google’s immersive Street View technology and our interactive 360° imagery you can showcase your business like never before. The images appear on Google Search results, Google Maps, Maps for Mobile and Google+ Local, and they invite new customers to “Step Inside!”.
The Lodge at Winchcombe is a new type of stay in the heart of the Cotswolds.
We were approached by The Lodge earlier this year to create a full virtual tour of the Grade II listed, 11 bedroom country home in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire.
With 37 individual scenes, the tour helps advertise the boutique-style hotel to new and existing clients.
Web and Brochure Design
In addition to the Virtual Tour, we also designed and developed a fully responsive website as well as a beautiful brochure with first-class photography to show off the charm of staying at The Lodge.

Will a Google Street View tour help my business’s search results?
Your tour will appear in Google Search results, Google Maps and Google+ pages. These results will look more inviting and informative, allowing your customers to explore your business via a new and innovative experience.
Does my tour need updating?
No. However, if your business has been re-decorated or you have a high stock turnover, you may want to update it frequently. For example, if only one scene in your tour has changed, we can just update it individually – there is no need to redo the whole shoot.
Do I have to tidy up?
Generally, yes! First impressions are everything, so we recommend making your premises look presentable before the photo shoot.
Who owns the images?
You own all of the images. Once your invoice has been paid, we will upload your tour to Google’s platform, where you will be able to check up on how many visitors you’ve had and which parts of your tour are doing the most for your business.
What about security and privacy?
For privacy and peace of mind we always blur out faces, number plates, security alarms, sensors and keypads from all of our photos.
How long does it take?
Depending on the size of your premises, our photo shoots can vary from 15 to 60 minutes. When the photos have been taken, our specialists will process and edit the images to ensure our security and privacy points have been met. Once this is done the photos will be composed and the tour uploaded. This whole process takes between 24-48 hours.
How do I embed the tour on my website?
Once the tour has been completed, we will send you the virtual tour in the form of a line of code, which you just copy and paste onto your web page. We host all of our virtual tours on a dedicated server, this ensures that the tour software you’re using on your site is always up-to-date.
