Inspiring visitors

In the summer of 2015 the North Downs Way was captured by the Google Trekker; a panoramic Google Street View camera mounted on a backpack designed to go “off-road” to map areas Google has never been before. To inspire visitors to the trail. The images of the entire trail can be viewed at

The Google images will encourage people to explore the trail from the comfort of their homes and to inspire them to put on their shoes and walk the trail. This will attract more visitors to the communities and businesses along the trail and will have a positive impact on the local visitor economy.
