Globetrotters quarantined at home can teleport themselves to France and back to the 17th century with a virtual reality-powered visit to the Palace of Versailles.

Has your trip to France been cancelled because of covid-19? Do you need to keep a child in your home occupied for an hour? Keep your worries at bay because there's a virtual reality experience that can help you.

'Experience Versailles' isn't new but it's enjoying renewed interest among Francophiles and households on lockdown for offering an alternative way to experience Versailles from thousands of miles away.

For kids, the experience is an educational one, teaching players about Louis XIV and French sovereignty. Players also infiltrate a sumptuous masked ball held by Louis XV and can explore the palace grounds, moving through the Royal Courtyard, to the Hall of Mirrors and the King's Apartments.

For parents, it's an hour or two of distraction. 'Experience Versailles' is free, powered by Steam and works with VR headsets like HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. What are you waiting for? Fasten your headsets and get ready to explore the Palace of Versailles (without leaving home).
