Street View at Prayer

Outside Street View of Lincoln Cathedral

For a while Google Maps has steadily been increasing coverage of inside Street View for businesses, stores and museums. It is now also capturing Street Views inside a number of cathedrals.

The main nave of Lincoln Cathedral

In the UK Lincoln Cathedral has indoor Street View. For almost 300 years after it was first built Lincoln Cathedral was the tallest building in the world. In Google Maps you can now explore the main nave and the Chapter House.

The view from Salisbury Cathedral roof

Salisbury Cathedral also has some beautiful indoor Street Views. Salisbury Cathedral has Britain's tallest spire. Exploring the Street View in Google Maps you can get a wonderful view looking up into the inside of the spire.

New York's opulent St Patrick's Cathedral also has indoor Street View. The cornerstone of St. Patrick’s Cathedral was laid in 1858 and her doors first opened in 1879.
