Watch the World from Home - Selected Webcams

These links will take you to live views of widely scattered places around the globe.  The degree to which the view is truly "live" varies, from continuously streaming images, to those which may update only once every 20 minutes.  Remember to take into account the time difference;  it may be night at the camera's location.  One of the most truly live experiences is the Abbey Road webcam, since it includes an audio feed in addition to the continuous video images - it's like being there!  And of course the faster your Internet connection, the more live it will seem.  Occasionally these sites may require that you "Refresh" your browser to update the image or reactivate the live feed. If the camera images aren't behaving properly you may need to try a different browser.  Unfortunately sometimes these cameras or their servers break down, are decommissioned or assigned a new web address. But I will try to keep the list up to date.
