Accessible Britain is your new one-stop shop for travel planning

VisitBritain has launched a new website, Accessible Britain - wholly focused on providing information and inspiration your next adventure to England, Scotland, or Wales.

VisitBritain has launched a new website, Accessible Britain – wholly focused on providing information and inspiration for your next adventure to England, Scotland, or Wales. This is set to be a one-stop shop for accessible travel planning, and it’s a fantastic resource.

Britain has always been a wonderfully accessible destination, with free services and assistance available to any traveller with a disability. Most major places of interest – museums, theatres, galleries, stately homes, the countryside, and the coast – offer a host of supports.

Anyone who’s been to London can tell you that the iconic attractions (like Westminster Abbey, Wembley Stadium, the Kew Gardens, and the royal residences) have made accessibility a priority, with flat paths, audio and tactile guides, hearing loops, and more.

But there’s plenty to find on Accessible Britain if you want to get off the tourist track, too! There’s hiking wheelchairs for exploration, adaptive snow sports in the winter, sensory fishing in the great outdoors, accessible movie sets and music festivals, and more – all across England, Scotland, and Wales.

Accessible Britain also covers the practicalities of travelling, with accessibility guides for transport (airports, railways, vehicles, and coaches) and recommendations for accessible accommodation across all locales.

The new website is full of handy hints, like wearing a Sunflower Lanyard for people with hidden or non-visible disabilities (staff at most attractions and travel services are trained in providing assistance).

Your days of overwhelm and trawling the internet for relevant information are over – VisitBritain has made it easy with a one-stop shop for accessible adventures in Britain!
