The Weekend Break

London in 3D

I've just added the 100th building (Buckingham Palace) to this Google Earth Browser collection of the best 3D models in Google Earth. You can now take a tour of eight cities Paris, Rome, Tokyo, London, Washington, Berlin, Beijing and Chicago.

London is the latest city to have been added and this new collection includes, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and a number of other iconic buildings in the English capital.

If you want to make your own collection of 3D buildings or natural wonders in the Google Earth Browser then go to EarthSwoop. EarthSwoop has a number of collections put together by its users, including this one of Man Made Travel Wonders.

This collection of travel writer Howard Hillman's list of the world's greatest man made wonders includes the Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu, the Taj Mahal and many more.

Both of the collections above require the Google Earth Browser plug-in and are Windows only.
