Access guide for disabled people
This guide is produced by a charitable association and seems to have very good reviews.
The guides are free of charge but a donation is obviously expected so they can carry on the good work.
They all cover the key subjects of interest to both residents and visitors. These include the practicalities of getting around, and access into the main places of interest and of entertainment. For the visitor, they include details of access problems encountered in travelling to your destination, and of accessible accommodation. There is an extensive list of useful contact organisations and of both general and specialised information.
All the guides are researched by visit, and the survey teams include people with disabilities, so the information is firmly based on people's experience. Our approach regarding access is significantly different from that of many other information providers. This is because our write-ups and assessments are essentially descriptive. We say how big the place is and measure distances where relevant. We note slopes and surfaces as well as looking for step free routes. Where there are barriers, we give details - for example of the number of steps involved, or of door widths. We even give the basic details about disabled person's toilets.
