nickname, and the culture of the place is very much wrapped up in the city’s long
maritime history. Here is Quingo Scooters’ guide to Aberdeen, the hidden jewel of

The UK is blessed with
a rich musical heritage, as well as plenty of wonderful venues in which to
enjoy some of the world’s leading performers. The great news is that many of

a time when Britain was covered in woodland, and although much of that ancient forest
is gone, there are still huge areas to explore up and down the UK. These places

our country’s forests are accessible to those of us who use mobility scooters.

We had to
start with a castle that isn’t just one of the nation’s favourites, but also the
one that the Queen herself calls home. Windsor Castle was first founded by
William the Conqueror just after the Norman Invasion and since then 39
different kings and queens have lived there – although you probably won’t be
lucky enough to see the Queen herself when you visit.
