The first of it's kind virtual tour in the UK, an ever-expanding town-wide experience to showcase everything!
As a resident, our local town has always been where we experiment new technologies and innovative ideas, together with Rochdale Business Improvement District and more recently Rochdale Development Agency we’re changing the perception of the town, not just of those that live here but helping to attract new investment and bring visitors to the birthplace of the co-op.
In the early part of 2019 we were asked to photograph various pubs, bars and restaurants within the town centre as there’s a substantial food and beverage offering, in fact they proclaim to be the “food and drink capital of the North West” as we’d already photographed numerous other local businesses, we pitched the idea of bringing all these mini tours together into a single experience, to this day Rochdale360 continues to grow and offers a virtual look around shops, leisure facilities, points of interest and includes information on redevelopments. It’s become the unofficial tourism portal of Rochdale Town Centre.
67 Places to Explore, So Far.
Government buildings, places of worship, local museums, recreational parks, the historic town hall, shopping centres, individual stores and restaurants all are recreated as a digital twin and can be virtually toured in their entirety via desktop, smartphone or in VR.
