Disabled access charity recognises the UK’s top venues for accessibility


Eight venues from across the UK have received recognition from the disabled access charity Euan’s Guide for their “outstanding” welcome for disabled visitors.

The awards, which are now in their second year, recognise the best accessible venues in each region, based on public nominations and reviews shared on Euan’s Guide.

From the hundreds of nominated venues, Euan’s Guide selected the following venues because they “stood out by providing exceptionally good experiences to disabled people.”

•             Barbican – London
•             Newquay Zoo – Southern England
•             Cadbury World – Midlands
•             Beamish, The Living Museum of the North – Northern England
•             Holyrood Distillery – Southern Scotland
•             Culloden Battlefield – Northern Scotland
•             Folly Farm – Wales
•             George Best Belfast City Airport – Northern Ireland

Euan MacDonald, co-founder of Euan’s Guide, said: “Last year we awarded four venues across the UK. This year we felt it was only fitting to recognise eight venues that stretch across the UK.”

Adding: “Each of these venues has shown tremendous commitment to providing an excellent experience to all in 2019, making them ideal places to visit in 2020.”

Each of the venues have been recommended by their disabled visitors who use Euan’s Guide to share their experiences and find new places to visit. 

Six of the eight venues have a Changing Places facility installed.
