Where to go

Here are a lists of all the places we have visited with groups over the past three years as well as a few more we discovered though the emCett research we did with tutors from other disciplines. The majority are in Yorkshire and Humberside but there are a few in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Our cultural heritage is a great resource that can be utilised by any discipline. Let us know how you use different sites, historic buildings, locations. If you want ideas try this How to use cultural venues.


Deaf students may be interested in two new apps that have appeared in the Apple App Store developed by Acoustiguide Ltd.
