The UK’s Top Ten Accessible Attractions

Carrie-Ann Lightley from Tourism for All UK  wrote an article about the top 10 accessible attractions in the UK.

1.     Eden Project

The Eden Project has won awards for its accessibility, and it’s a wonderful, year-round facility that’s packed with things to do and learn.  The project prides itself on providing a great experience for all ages, abilities and backgrounds.  There is also a volunteer scheme to assist those who need a little help, and a creative approach to accessibility throughout.

2.     Edinburgh Castleedinb

Although the abundance of cobbles can make things uncomfortable for wheelchairs, it’s worth it., plus they are are re-pointing all of the cobbled areas to make them more accessible – a huge job!  A mobility vehicle takes disabled visitors to the highest point, allowing a gradual descent around the grounds.

3.     Chatsworth House

Chatsworth House is a dream for someone who uses a wheelchair, as everywhere is accessible From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, you feel you have experienced all that the house has to offer the visitor.  With the use of a lift, you are able to see al of the rooms, and once you’re done you can use the toilets, peruse the gift shop and have a drink and something to eat.
