Days out fit for royalty with The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain

The Accessible Britain team accept the AMI Award

The new Guide features reviews of over 200 accessible attractions, many with a ‘regal’ theme such as Kensington Gardens, once the private gardens of Kensington Palace, the former home of Diana, Princess of Wales. Younger visitors will enjoy the pirate-themed Diana memorial playground, situated in the Gardens. Visit Westminster Abbey which played host to the exact ceremony the nation is celebrating – Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation – visitors can even see the Coronation Chair. Or head to Greenwich Park, London’s oldest Royal Park, for stunning views of the capital from the Royal Observatory, a trip to the Wilderness Deer Park or the Flower Garden.

The fourth edition of The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain is available to view for free online and features over 200 inspiring ideas for worry-free days out, including more than 60 brand new reviews for 2012. Each review contains hints and tips from the Rough Guides team of disabled reviewers who visited each venue, looking for well thought out accessibility features and unique attractions, both of which contribute to making a great day out.

The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain series has been developed in association with Motability, the leading car scheme for disabled people. These online reviews contain all the accessibility information you need to enjoy a great day out.
