Yes. I would be willing to travel to a particular site/place if it was also where a students design was being worked on as this would help me understand his/her work better. Prefer to be within the South West of England to reduce time and costs. Travel costs would be negotiable depending on distance, transport and if I could link the visit to another journey etc.
