Survey shows UK lacks disabled travel access

It goes without saying people with disabilities have every right to travel as much as those who are able-bodied. In today’s society our opening sentence seems dated, surely public transport and airports cater for those with physical limitations?


Hampton Court - Accessibility Information

Winter can be a difficult time if you fancy getting out and about. Most theme parks are closed, animals at zoos are normally huddling in their wooden boxes trying to keep warm and something tells us a percentage of our disabled readership don’t fancy jetting off on a skiing holiday.


Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland - Access Information

The view is magnificent, over there we can see the London Eye, to its left, the Houses of Parliament and over in the distance the BT Tower. Unfortunately our panoramic view of the Capital city won't last for long as within the next thirty seconds we will plunge 66 feet down to the ground.


Access on the London Underground

The London Underground can be a nightmare at the best of times, but if you are in a wheelchair or a bit unsteady on your feet finding your way under the streets of London can be extremely tricky. If you live in the Capital don’t forget you can apply for a Freedom Card offering you free transport on buses as well the tube.


Disabled Access at Polling Stations

Seeing as our ancestors fought for us to have the right to vote it seems only our rightful place to take part in tomorrow’s local elections and there’s no excuse to use the old ‘I can’t vote tomorrow because I’m disabled’ trick as polling stations across the UK have made it easier for all to participate.
