    I have a XML sitemap set up for my website, which i made using Google Webmaster Tools. I don't however have a physical site map, for viewers of my website. What is the benefit of having one of these? Is it worth much in terms of SEO?

    It is nice to have a physical sitemap for your visitors. It makes it easier to navigate your site and go to the particular page they are interested in.

    Both type are sitemap is good, but not necessary. If you want to provide more convenience to site visitor use HTML sitemap and if want to give some convenience to search engine than provide xml sitemap.
