The online guide features reviews of accessible attractions such as Yorkshire Wildlife Park in south Yorkshire. Most of the animals are allowed to wander around the park freely, so visitors can get up close to a wide range of animals including llamas, monkeys and wallabies, while infamous big cats can be viewed from raised, wheelchair accessible walkways. The little ones can also enjoy the Adventure Park and indoor Play Barn.
For those in the East Midlands, see spring flowers at their best at the Barnsdale Gardens in Rutland. A Collection of 38 small gardens set in eight-acres of land; it was once home to BBC’s Gardener’s World. With everything you could want to see, whether you’re green-fingered or not, from rose gardens and fruit orchards to an abundantly stocked Japanese garden, there is plenty to discover. Or for those who fancy something slightly more adventurous, head to Devon’s Tarka Trail and Tunnel Beaches. A great way to explore the grey sand shingle beaches of Devon, through secluded tracks and tunnels that were originally popular with Victorians, the beach is now lots of fun for children with inflatables.
