Royal Victoria Chapel, Netley

As manager of the National Lottery Heritage Fund project at the Royal Victoria Chapel, my goal has been to make this unique, historic site accessible to people and to ensure that the story of the military hospital is not forgotten. We have partnered with 360ify to allow the public the opportunity to explore the site from anywhere in the world with Matterport's immersive 3D tours.
Using the Matterport system we are now able to give people who are unable to get to the site the chance to explore the site as if they were really there. Later this year we will be introducing virtual reality headsets, allowing visitors who are unable to climb the 150ft tower of the Chapel to experience the views from the top.
Steve brought the idea of scanning the building to our team and it has been fantastic working with 360ify on this project. He has been very professional and developed all aspects of the tour and the virtual experience for us, and we are delighted with the result. I would recommend this for any museum or heritage site as a great way of recording and sharing your site with the public and improving accessibility.
