London, Food and Travel with an Alternative Twist!

What are the Most Accessible Attractions in London? *

*This is a collaborative post.

London is the best city in the world; FACT! That’s not just me saying that it’s a legit fact that has been voted for and we’ve won it many times! There really is something for everyone there; great food, quirky pubs, an insane amount of experiences, theatres galore, and themed bars. Quite literally anything you can think, London will most certainly have it.

But it’s all well and good having all of these amazing things to do but just how many of them are fully accessible? I’ve found a few of them to start you off with…

Tower Bridge

One of the most accessible things to do in London is also one of most popular too! Tower Bridge has wheelchairs available to borrow at both the Ticket Office and Engine Rooms entrances, benches for a little sit down in the Towers, walkways and in the Engine Rooms, plenty of lifts so the experience can be step-free and best of all assistance dogs and pets are welcome!

ZSL London Zoo

I always love a trip to the zoo as it makes me feel like a kid again, but London Zoo is highly accessible too which makes it a great day out for everyone. They have disabled car parking so you don’t have to use public transport, a lot of the exhibitions have ramps or lifts so no one misses out, there are wheelchairs and a motorised scooted available for higher free of charge, and there are many accessible toilets scattered around the zoo.

There are a few rules about Guide Dogs as expected due to the animals in the zoo, but there are outlined on their website.

Natural History Museum

Any trip to London isn’t complete without a trip to the National History Museum in my eyes! Something that I really love about the venue is the fact that all deaf and disabled people, and their family members or carers can jump the queues to enter the Museum!

As with a lot of venues, there are wheelchairs available for use, plenty of lifts, places to stop and sit for a while plus many accessible toilets that are marked on the museum map. If you wish to wander the museum without your guide or assistance dog then you are welcome to leave them at either of the cloakrooms.

Shakespeare’s Globe

One of the most surprising venues on this list is Shakespeare’s Globe, who knew a building that old could be made accessible! Each show will have an offering of accessible tickets, hearing and guide dogs are more than welcome, there are hearing Induction loops, there are sign language interpreted performances where the interpreter will stand downstage right and there are also audio described performances too.

The Globe have a dedicated Access Information Line operates from 10am – 5pm on weekdays that offers advice on specialised services for disabled people at Shakespeare’s Globe should you have any questions.

Coca-Cola London Eye

The Coca-Cola London Eye is fully accessible, but due to health and safety, they can currently only permit entry to two wheelchair users per capsule and eight in total on The London Eye at any one time. You are able to book wheelchair slots in advance online to make sure that you don’t miss out on the sights and you are permitted to bring a carer along with you free of charge. You are also able to bring on motorised scooters as long as they fit within the width of the boarding gate and ramp at under 37 inches.

London really has so much on offer that is fully accessible, but if you want to know where the most accessible attractions in the UK are, then let Age Mobility Group enlighten you with their interactive map.
