Grab your woolly hats and scarves to enjoy fun-filled festive days out with the family this Christmas with The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain.
The guide features reviews of accessible attractions across the UK including the Eden Project where visitors can explore the magical Enchanted Rainforest this Christmas. Complete with live performances and music, visitors will leave filled with festive spirit. Families can meet Santa Claus and his reindeer, get creative with Christmas craft workshops and get cosy and relax with festive storytellers and traditional carol singers.
Get into the party spirit at the National Ice Centre in Nottingham and join the disco on the ice this Christmas Eve. The accessible centre offers adapted Zimmer frames and purpose built sledges for wheelchair users. For those who prefer to bundle up and enjoy the wintry festivities, a free ride on the Winterland Express at Belfast’s W5 is a magical train ride taking visitors through an enchanted forest to Santa’s Grotto in a magical icy Christmas cavern.
The guide features more than 200 reviews and ideas for great accessible days out across the UK including reviews of some of the country’s most beautiful and accessible towns – one for each of the 10 regional chapters.

Each chapter of the guide also features a recommended Scenic Drive route, passing through some of the UK’s most stunning scenery.
