Accessible Disabled Friendly Attractions

Planning before visiting an accessible attraction when you have a disability, especially a mobility impairment is automatic as many attractions are not (or cannot be) as accessible as we would like.  Because of this ABLEize highlights accessible disabled friendly attractions. More and more locations are gradually becoming more accessible for people with disabilities and mobility problems such as wheelchair users and the blind.

We have built this accessible attractions section to assist you in finding great places to visit that are stress free and more accessible to your needs and highlights some of the larger or more popular attractions worth visiting along with details of attractions that provide greater levels of accessibility for all.  In most cases we have listed the accessible page of the site concerned to save you clicking through the sites looking for these sometimes buried pages.

Browse the accessible attractions below to find details of some of the best places to visit in the UK with full details about access for wheelchair users, those with special needs, hearing and vision impairments.  If you found this list of accessible attractions useful, please help us by sharing this page with a friend by clicking the link below or if you prefer why not share with us via email so we can look into including them.
