Short breaks

nitnursenitnurse Member Posts: 2
Hello! With summer school holidays looming, I am looking for recommendations of any wheelchair accessible short break options within 2 hours of London other than Center parks please? Am looking for a 7 year old boy travelling with his mum and grandmother. Also any ideas of activities in the London area would be fab (have read the ones on a similar link but wandering if there was anything specifically in London). Thank you in advance!

    There are lots of accessible museums and attractions in London, such as the London Eye, Tate Modern, London Transport Museum, Kew Gardens, etc which are great for days out. It's worth planning your transport - while all the buses in the capital are wheelchair accessible, the underground network sadly isn't. You can download an underground map from the TFL website, which lists wheelchair accessible stations. Hope that helps!

    We are taking my 9 yr old to London for few days at christmas, and we re going to take him Winter Wonderland in the day, its too busy and full of drunks in evening!. And we re going to take him on the ice rink in his wheelchair outside the eye.
