Accessible Yorkshire.

11 November 2016

Things to do, places to go, what to see. Just because you struggle with mobility or have a disability doesn’t mean you have to remain within your own home or stay confided to visiting the same places or partaking in repetitive activities.

Appreciative of the fact that venturing out with no pre-planning is a daunting and somewhat irrational thing to do we decided to take it upon ourselves to create a guide to accessible Yorkshire.

Focusing solely on what we believe the most interesting, exciting and perhaps somewhat of a hidden gem thing to do, this article highlights the most sought after, disable friendly tourist attractions in and around the whole of Yorkshire. Slightly subjective we are confident that there will be at least one thing on the list that will spark some interest between yourself and your loved ones.
