Top UK Landmarks found on Google Maps

Google Maps is a cool site that lets you view maps from all over the world. In June 2005, Google added satellite imagery to their UK maps. This site contains links to the most spectacular and notable landmarks that can be viewed in the UK.

This site launched on 25 June 2005, so it's a bit sparse at the moment. Help out by adding locations near to you!
