I have just had great fun playing with the new feature on the ROH website - you can take a virtual tour! There are 20 locations around the house you can see, and the camera pans around and you can zoom in if you want a closer look. Cool!:) www.roh.org.uk

It looks pretty good. One of the best virtual tours I think I have seen is the Sydney Opera House one.

Thank you, Lolly, for posting that link. I took the tour and found it most fascinating. I was interested not only in the "new" parts of the House, but in how the "old" parts had been altered - eg. the stairs into the stalls of the main auditorium now face a different way than formerly. When I was an usherette in the stalls, we were permitted to stand on those steps to watch the show. As they faced toward the rear of the auditorium and ended in front of Row F, by standing with one's back to the wall of the stalls circle, one had a fabulous, and very close, view of the stage without in any way obstructing the view of those in the seats in Row F. :D

Oh how lovely that you could watch! Did you see a lot of performances that way? Golly, that would be a dream job for me...:D
