Your Host: The Jackson Street Programme

The Jackson Street Programme (JSP) is an incorporated society set up in 1991 to promote Jackson Street as a destination for shopping, dining, socialising, professional and commercial services, as well as its maintaining the area’s heritage.

JSP is funded by a targeted levy on commercial ratepayers in the street, charitable donations and subscriptions paid by supporters and associate members.  Net proceeds from this 3D virtual tour go to the JSP.

Tablets, Apple iPad and browsers such as Safari and Edge are also supported.  Mobile devices can also be used but may detract from the user experience given their small screen size.  

If you experience an issue while viewing the 3D tour, close the entire browser window (NOT the red ‘X’ close within the 3D Tour window – that will instantly end your ticket) and restart the 3D tour by using the URL link and ticket token provided via email. This must be done straight away before the original ticket duration expires.
