With over 180 reviews of accessible days out to choose from, there’s something for everyone in the brand new Rough Guide to Accessible Britain. The Guide, refreshed for 2018, aims to inspire and support people with diverse needs in enjoying the best of Britain’s attractions – whatever their disability.
The perfect tool for Motability Scheme customers wanting to explore the UK, the revamped Rough Guide to Accessible Britain is packed with over 180 comprehensive reviews, plus lots of hints, tips and suggestions for enjoying a great, accessible day out.
The Guide, now in its 10th year, has for the first time extended its reviews to include information for visitors with more hidden conditions such as autism or mental illness.
So, as well as details of ramps, accessible toilets and parking spaces, visitors can find out well in advance whether a venue offers features such as quiet mornings, picture stories or bespoke queuing arrangements.
The Guide has the enthusiastic backing of TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham, a passionate advocate of the great outdoors.
Chris said: “The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain is a celebration of some of the best and most inclusive venues in the UK. From personal experience, I know that many people face particular barriers to enjoying a day out. The Guide equips visitors with all the information they need to set out with confidence, so they can simply concentrate on making the most of their day.”

The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain provides clear and helpful advice to highlight the very best inclusive and accessible days out for people of all abilities, from museums and art galleries, to wildlife parks and gardens. Every venue is thoroughly checked out by Rough Guides’ team of reviewers, who either have a disability themselves or visited the venue with disabled friend or family member.

The new edition places particular focus on accessibility for people with neuro-diverse and mental health conditions, and has drawn on advice from specialist organisations such as the National Autistic Society. It showcases many examples of best practice, with venues large and small providing imaginative solutions to the challenges posed by hidden disabilities.
The Guide is an ideal planning tool for anyone with access needs and this expanded edition includes many new entries such as Windsor Castle, RSPB Bempton Cliffs, Monkey World, Hyde Hall, Essex, and Sandcastle Waterpark in Blackpool.
