Google has a great number of resources that allow you to freely explore unmissable sites all over the world.
If you haven’t used Street View before, it’s a 360-degree viewing experience that you can use on the internet – we’ve got a guide for beginners if you need some help to get started.
Google Maps also has a satellite and earth function which allows you to see from above. You can check out everything from the Arabian Desert to the Galapagos Islands, but there are also some amazing historic sites to be seen as well.
We’ve got a round-up of the best wartime, military and naval locations below. Just click on their names to have a look for yourself!
HMS Ocelot, Kent
HMS Ocelot was a submarine operated by the Royal Navy until 1991. She currently sits in Chatham Dockyard in Kent and can be viewed from inside and out.
La Pointe du Hoc, France
This cliff played an important part in World War II, as the highest point between Utah Beach to the west and Omaha Beach to the east. You can see the site from above using Google Maps’ satellite view or wander around using Street View.

One of several war memorials around the UK that can be viewed, Brookwood Cemetery was opened in 1854. At 400 acres, it is the largest cemetery in Western Europe.
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii
It is 74 years since Japan’s military strike on Pearl Harbor – and you can now see it from the skies of Google Maps.

You can see many areas where trenches once stood around France, like this one in Sommepy-Tahure.
