10 bookshops you can visit right now on Google Street View

Bookshops to visit with Google Street View

There is a growing number of bookshops that you can explore before the visit to your next travel destination.

More and more bookshops move their online presence to the next level. They offer indoor tours powered by Google Street technology.

The idea of luring potential visitors with the interactive interior view is especially clever if the bookshop is located in one of big tourist destinations, like London, Barcelona, Berlin, or Tokyo.

An example of La Central del MUHBA reveals how big the marketing potential of this tool can be. Just look at the picture, or the embedded Google Street View below, and you’ll see that a large English books section is located upstairs.

And if we involve some imagination, or simply predict how would Google Street View evolve, we could think of using much more advanced Google Street View indoor tools.

If you are a bookshop owner, check out whether you can offer Google Indoor Tours. The service is currently available in a dozen of countries, and not only in capitals, like a year ago. All you have to do is to sign up to a partner program and schedule a shoot with a Google trusted crew.

If you plan a trip, you are most probably using Google Maps to select attractions. You can easily find out whether the indoor tour is offered by a museum, café, or bookshop. In the pop-up widget look for the preview called “See inside”.
