10 UK attractions with the best access

Here are ten of the best attractions in the UK that cater for all visitors, including those with mobility difficulties and disabilities.

While you or a member of your party may have a mobility difficulty, this needn’t hold you back from enjoying days out no matter where you are visiting in the UK. The accessibility of attractions is continually improving, with many tourist sites winning awards for their new and adapted facilities in order to accommodate for disabled visitors and stairlift users with limited mobility.

Here, we’ve cherry picked some of the best and most accessible attractions in the UK, to make deciding where to go that little bit easier.

1.      Roman Baths

As one of the biggest attractions in the South West, it seems only appropriate that the Roman Baths cater for all visitors, of which it attracts one million each year. This fine historic site is Britain’s only hot spring, and has undergone extensive renovations in order to protect the temple and bathing complex, while also modernising the facilities. An impressive 90 per cent of the site is accessible to wheelchair users, and sign language audio guides are available.
