Summer holiday days out for all the family with The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain

Getting out and about this summer is easy thanks to the Rough Guide to Accessible Britain.rough-guide

The online guide features reviews of a range of accessible family attractions such as London Fields Lido where swimming enthusiasts can pass the day in the Olympic-sized swimming pool with snacks and refreshing ice creams available from The Hoxton Beach Café. Outside of London, thrill-seekers can brave the rides at Thorpe Park in Surrey, where teenagers with a taste for adrenalin will love Colossus, Slammer and Detonator whilst those seeking a more relaxed day out can head to Folly Farm in Wales to meet farmyard animals, armadillos and giraffes.

Families in the Lancashire area will love a quintessential English day out to Southport Pier. Tuck into fish and chips on the Victorian Pier, play on the antique penny arcade (using authentic old pennies) and build sand castles on the 22-mile stretch of beautiful coastline.

The guide features over 200 attractions across the UK including the iconic Chatsworth House and gardens which visitors can explore. Take a tour of the sensory garden to stimulate sound, touch and smell and marvel at the array of plants and produce being grown in the nursery and greenhouses.

The fourth edition of The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain is available to view for free online, giving you plenty of new ideas for accessible trips in 2013. Each review contains hints and tips from the Rough Guides team of disabled reviewers who visited each venue, looking for well thought out accessibility features and unique attractions, both of which contribute to making a great day out.

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