Get ready for the start of the new school term and enjoy an educational and fun family day out with top of the class accessibility from The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain.
The online guide features reviews of accessible attractions such as the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Yorkshire. Built inside what was once one of the world’s biggest steelworks, Magna celebrates science with a raft of interactive exhibits. Visitors can operate a JCB, fire a super-soaking hose and marvel as the steel mill’s original arc furnace is fired up for The Big Melt.
For those living or holidaying in the South West, Cornwall’s Eden Project offers visitors the chance to explore the plant life of the Mediterranean, California and Cape Town, as well as trekking through the jungles of Malaysia, West Africa and South America, all in one accessible day out. A visit to the iconic dome glasshouses, the Biomes, is a feel-good trip to learn about the botanical world and conservation. For those needing to brush up on their history, you can travel back in time to learn about the history of our planet at Our Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. The attraction is situated in the shadow of the long extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat, and offers visitors the chance to board a “time machine” – with clever use of video and sound – and learn about the creation of the universe through a series of 3D, 4D and interactive exhibits.
The Guide features more than 200 reviews and ideas for great days out across the UK including reviews of some of the country’s most beautiful and accessible towns – one for each of the 10 regional chapters. Each town review is jam-packed with fun things to do and see and includes a potted history of each town. Each chapter of the Guide also features a recommended Scenic Drive route, passing through some of the UK’s most stunning scenery.
