Virtual tours of British things - Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, Wembley Stadium...

The United Kingdom's Guardian newspaper launched a series of interactive panoramas of major British landmarks last week. They're not at the Google Street View level of being able to move through the space, but you can zoom in and out and pan in all directions.

So far, they've done St. Paul's Cathedral, the Glasgow School of Art and Wembley Stadium.

Seeing this got me looking for virtual tours of other British landmarks. There are some great interactive rooms from Buckingham Palace, which they call "Virtual Rooms." You can see the Grand Staircase, the Throne Room, the Blue Drawing Room and the White Drawing Room.

So, for those of you who couldn't attend the Royal Wedding, feel free to Photoshop yourself in where you deem appropriate.

What other virtual tours have you seen that you like? Let us know in the comments.
