Experience history, magic and nature with the updated Rough Guide to Accessible Britain

Rough Guide to Accessible Britain 2014With half-term approaching, accessible family days out across the UK are now even easier with a host of new attractions added to the Rough Guide to Accessible Britain – Family Days Out microsite re-launched this month.

The fully refreshed guide features over 100 ideas for days out, including 10 brand new reviews of popular attractions that will excite and delight children of all ages, including the London Aquarium, Chester Zoo, the Titanic Belfast and the Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour.

Each attraction has been visited by disabled people and their families and alongside general information about the venue such as opening times and entrance fees, each review also includes full details on accessibility.

Whether you choose to enter the magical world of Hogwarts at the Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour, or decide to learn more about wildlife by marvelling at over four hundred different species at Chester Zoo, the online guide has something to entertain the whole family.

The reviews are grouped by region, type of attraction and accessibility requirement, making the guide easy to navigate and helping you find the most suitable attraction depending on your location and particular interests. If you are keen to explore the UK’s coasts and countryside there are a number of ideas for scenic tours and drives including the Brecon Canal Walk, Bournemouth Beach and Bournemouth Balloon and Nevis Range Mountain experience. For those interested in arts and education there’s a wide range of venues to visit including the Armagh Planetarium, Discover: Children’s Story Centre and Eureka! The National Children’s Museum, to engage and inspire parents and children alike.

Reviewer and foreword author for The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain, Emma Bowler said:

“The latest additions to the Rough Guide to Accessible Britain – Family Days Out mean it is now even easier to plan a day out for the whole family to enjoy, whatever their interests. It is reassuring to know that each attraction has been reviewed independently by disabled people and their families. I’m sure the whole family will enjoy deciding where to go to enjoy days out across the country and experience the very best that these attractions have to offer.”

As well as hints and tips on each attraction, the website also includes a free activity pack available to download to keep children entertained on the journey and a host of special offer vouchers are available for selected attractions. Plus, the Woof Stuff! page is also full of advice from Battersea Dogs and Cats home on how to keep your dog safe on days out to ensure that all members of the family can have fun. Visitors to the website also have the opportunity to submit their own reviews and advice in the Visitor Reviews section.

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