Here at Quingo Scooters, we thought that this time around we’d bring you just a few highlights from some of the most picturesque and dramatic parts of the UK. Our National Parks are stunning and most feature great routes that are accessible to those of us who use mobility scooters. This is our pick of some of the best.
Accessing the UK’s National Parks
There are 15 National Parks across the UK, with 10 in England, three in Wales and two in Scotland.
We all need to get away sometimes, and there is nothing we love more here at Quingo Scooters than tracking down the best short breaks in the UK for you. There are certainly plenty to choose from but this time we’re finding out what the beautiful northern spa town of Harrogate has to offer.
It’s a regular winner of the best place to live in the UK and it really is no wonder. Harrogate is a stunning town, full of historic buildings and tea rooms to wile away the days in.
Mobility scooters offer the perfect way to get around if you’re wanting to explore the great outdoors. And the destination we’re focusing on this time certainly has fresh air in abundance: the Lake District is famous around the world, and the great news is that much of it is accessible. So, here Quingo Scooters finds out what this incredible National Park has to offer.
The Lake District
Never mind just the UK: we’re going to be bold with this one and say that the Lake District must be truly one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
It looks like this long, hot summer isn’t over yet, with high temperatures forecast for just about everywhere for August. In the UK, we have so many accessible, beautiful, life affirming walks and routes to explore on your mobility scooter, it would be a shame not to try as many as you can before the sun goes in.
This time we’re heading to the jewel of the Welsh countryside, Snowdonia’s Beddgelert Forest. It’s 700 acres of forest, encompassing a treasure trove of different routes to try.
Stuck for ideas for your next scooter-friendly getaway? At Quingo Scooters, we’re bringing great ideas for city-breaks and adventures to you. This time we head east to Norwich, the county town of Norfolk.
Norwich is a beautiful mix of the historic and contemporary, with a river at its centre. It’s the most complete medieval city in the country and has a fantastic music, cultural and arts scene as well as fascinating heritage, great shopping and a wide range of bars and restaurants.
