Billed as a one-stop shop for accessible holiday and travel information, Open Britain (www.openbritain.net) lists over 8,000 UK tourism businesses that are committed to accessibility. Created by Tourism for All UK, this accessible tourism database allows visitors to find accessible properties and attractions throughout the UK that meet their specific access needs
Visitors can search the database for accessible UK properties, by region, type of property and specific access features. All properties on the site are self-assessed; however visitors who want extra assurance about accessibility can search for properties that were also evaluated by Visit England using the National Accessibility Scheme.
The listings include all pertinent access details plus the contact information needed to make a direct booking. And if you’d just like to get an idea about what types of properties are out there, you can do a general search of all the properties in a specific location.
This handy website also includes a good overview of access in England, Scotland and Wales, as well as a searchable database of accessible attractions, restaurants and shopping areas throughout the UK.
This comprehensive resource is easy to use, accurate and free. Best of all, more properties are continually being added, so check back often for new listings. It’s an excellent resource for any accessible trip Across the Pond.
