The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain returns with new family focus

Glide above the highland mountains at 2150ft, see a giant mammoth skeleton, visit the largest herd of African elephants in the UK or even get lost in one of the UK’s largest hedge mazes. These are just a handful of exciting things to do at UK attractions featured in the Rough Guide to Accessible Britain – Family Days Out.

Available FREE at, the new Family Days Out reviews include more than 75 great venues and attractions. All are geared towards making the most of days out for all members of the family, from toddlers to teenagers and grandparents too. The new online reviews have been created by the same team that brought you the award winning Rough Guide to Accessible Britain print series – Motability and Rough Guides.

The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain series is supported by Motability, the leading car scheme for disabled people, which provides worry-free motoring to over half a million people in the UK.

Attractions featured in the Rough Guide to Accessible Britain – Family Days Out aren’t just accessible; they’re also a fantastic and memorable day out for the entire family. The Rough Guides team of disabled visitors and their families scoured the country to find the ultimate day trips. Whether it’s the kids coming face to face with nature for the first time at Longleat, or losing them in a world of story-telling at the Discover Centre, all the reviews come with the information and advice needed for families with accessibility requirements.

Writer for The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain and mother of two, Emma Bowler explains: “I'm big on being outdoors with the family, especially anywhere you can see wildlife and the boys love that too. Also, since we got a dog this year we've loved trying to find accessible places to take her on my scooter.

“I had a great time visiting the attractions that I reviewed for the Family Days Out content and am even more excited about the attractions featured that we are yet to visit.”

The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain – Family Days Out can be viewed online at An easy-to-use search tool allows users to search by region, attraction type and accessibility requirements, while an interactive map ensures that finding a great day out in the UK is quick and easy.
