Bristol Teachers Explore the City’s Hidden Heritage
Twelve teachers, many of them new to the city, joined our hidden heritage tour for teachers in October. They spent a day visiting Bristol’s lesser known heritage sites, learning something of each place's history and found out about the education offer from each venue. We hope that they will have been inspired to bring their own pupils to some of these places during this academic year.
They began at St James’ Priory, Bristol’s oldest building, then made the short walk to the New Room, John Wesley’s first Methodist Chapel.
After visiting the Old Vic theatre, the teachers had a tour of the city docks in a Bristol ferry. The next stop was the new visitor’s centre at the Underfall Yard, near the Cumberland Basin.
In the afternoon, the teachers walked from the Cathedral to St George’s Hall on Brandon Hill and then on to the Royal West of England Academy. The day finished at the Muller foundation in Cotham.
