360imagery re-visit an old favourite….!

360imagery Virtual Tour of the Saracen's Head at Symond's YatThis commission took us back to one of our very favourite places in the UK – The Saracen’s Head at Symond’s Yat, for which we have a real soft spot! On a personal level we stay here nearly every year for a long weekend to go walking in the Black Mountains, but also Pete, Chris and his team are one of our longest-standing clients. So when Pete said they had updated some of the rooms and bar area, and needed a re-shoot, we jumped at the chance for a re-visit!

Unlike traditional paper marketing or videos, which can very quickly become quite dated (for example if rooms are refurbished), a virtual tour can easily have scenes re-shot and incorporated into the tour, giving it a much longer life and making it a more cost effective marketing tool.

This project also demonstrates the perfect use of a virtual tour – to showcase a brilliant gastro-pub/restaurant, bar and hotel in a really stunning location, nestled on the banks of the River Wye at Symond’s Yat. It’s a highly interactive tour that enables the viewer to explore not only the Saracen’s Head and all it has to offer, but also to take a ride on the hand-drawn ferry across the river, to cross further upstream on the rope bridge long the dis-used railway line (now a cycle/walking path), or to even get a bird’s eye view of the famous Yat Rock from 8 metres in the air……..

The clever bit back at the office is then bringing all these scenes together to work as one complete, interactive virtual tour. Have fun checking it out for yourself by either clicking here or on the post image above. The high-resolution, mobile responsive tour is published in HTML5 for cross-platform viewing on Android and hand-held Apple devices running iOS.
