Open Britain

So many of us require extra assurance that our needs will be met – whether we are a young independent wheelchair user; a grandparent who is not as agile as they used to be and needs a ground floor room; one of the many people with a hearing or vision impairment; or a member of the deaf community. Finding information on accessible holidays or travel, which is often scattered in many different places, is a major barrier. This website, which is the dream of the charity Tourism for All UK, aims to help overcome it.
