The historic chapel of the famous Royal Victoria Hospital, at Hampshire County Council’s Royal Victoria Country Park, can now be experienced by a worldwide audience thanks to the launch of a new virtual tour.

I was delighted as the County Council’s Executive Member for Recreation and Heritage to launch the virtual tour. Our conservation and renovation of the Royal Victoria Chapel, with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, has enabled thousands of visitors to access this unique, historic site on the Solent.

The new virtual tour – the first of its kind at our country parks – means that even those who cannot climb the steps of the tower can still enjoy the view through a Virtual Reality headset and soak up the stories the chapel holds as the last remaining part of what was once the world’s largest military hospital.

The introduction of the tour to an online audience also means that people from anywhere in the world can look around the building in 360 degrees, feeling as if they are actually there.
