It was a bit disappointing not being able to find a visitor centre there for such a large company - but as it turns out that's pretty standard amongst the tech companies I visited.
Next up was a visit to Google's campus. As a side note, the museum of computing is nearby - and a massive shame it was closed on Mondays as they have such as brilliant array of historic - and not so historic - computing. Don't miss it if you're in the area.
Google has a 'beta' visitor centre - only open if you have a member of google staff show you round - a disappointment to the people milling around hoping for a glimpse of what the visitor centre had to offer - instead content to take pictures with the street mapping car and the multi-coloured google bike.
There were people genuinely commuting around the place on these bikes. The campus is sprawling - the area the visitor centre is located in though, has wholly unremarkable buildings, brownish in colour and a few stories high. The visitor centre has a sign directing you towards the Android garden, so off we went for a look.
It's essentially a bunch of polystyrene Android figures. Bit of fun to pose with the giant Kit Kat Android figure and others.
