Plan trips on dragons and the Loch Ness Monster on Google Maps

5 June 2014

Google is very pleased with their new UK journey planner which they've just added to their Maps service. Now you can look at buses, trains and all that.

You can also travel by dragon or by the Loch Ness Monster.

As ever, Google have built some Easter Eggs into a new product and if you look up certain travel routes, the map will offer you normal recommendations, as well as imaginary animals.

So, you can catch a bus to Gravesend, punt through Oxford, take the Royal Carriage from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle, or fly on a dragon from Brecon Beacons to Snowdon.

There's bound to be a lot more Easter Eggs to be found on Maps, but we can't be bothered looking. We'll just wait for someone to set up a Tumblr dedicated to it all.

That's journalism in 2014 for you.
