Places to Visit

Sensational Nature Access Knowledge Exchange (SNAKE)

The UK has thousands of places to visit to enjoy the natural world.  However, how does anyone know if they have experiences that appeal to more than just the sense of sight.  Use our unique directory to find out which nature places have made an effort to awaken and stimulate the senses of hearing, touch, smell and taste. 

Just before you use the search box below, may I draw your attention to the fact that you can also share your own non-visual nature discoveries on the Submission Form page.  All contributions will be added to the directory for others to find.

To find somewhere to visit, enter a county in the ‘quick search’ box to get a list of nature places, then click on the name to discover what non-visual nature opportunities they have for you.
