How did you spend Easter? Apart from scoffing your faces with chocolate we guess a percentage of you paid a visit to a UK tourist attraction and with another Bank Holiday less than a fortnight away it won’t be long until we start planning how to spend that three-day break.

For those with disabilities checking the accessibility available at tourist spots is essential although the only guidelines we have are usually restricted to the venue’s website. However, thanks to disability charity Vitalise we can now publish the top 10 UK attractions which provide the best services to disabled visitors and also the ten who fail to cater for them.
