Is there anything better
to get you in a festive mood than a Christmas market? They bring together
everything that is best about the time of the year. Great food and drink, local
handicrafts and a warm atmosphere. And because they are often outside, they are
one of the most accessible activities you can enjoy this time of year.
But while we’ve seen a
rise in the number of the markets over recent years, they’re not all created
equal. And at a time of year when time and money is at a premium, you don’t
want to be wasting either.
Sometimes we all just need
to get away from it all to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. And
while a cheap flight and a few day’s holiday somewhere can make a big
difference, there’s nothing quite like going for it and really pampering
yourself at a luxury retreat.
The great news is there
are plenty of wonderful options here in the UK, and many of them cater to those
of us with mobility needs. Here is Quingo Scooter’s guide to some of the very
best accessible retreats in the country.
Aberdeen is a truly
unique city. Its architecture is defined by the granite that gives it its
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 north east of Scotland.
Enjoy the unique architecture of St Machar’s Cathedral
If there is one thing
you’ll notice when you head to Aberdeen (apart from the wind), it’s the city’s
stunning buildings. The city is largely built out of granite, and one of the
most impressive buildings is the ancient St Machar’s Cathedral.
without doubt, a nation of garden lovers. Last year alone, the British spent
something in the region of £5 billion on their own gardens: and it seems we are
just as passionate about visiting other people’s too.
recent warmer weather, there can be no better time to think about visiting one
of the UK’s many stunning public gardens. There are some spectacular ones to
visit, and most will now be beginning to burst with fresh green shoots and
spring flowers as the weather improves.
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
are home to a wonderful variety of wild animals and plants, as well as creating
a vast playground for everyone to access and enjoy. And fortunately, many of
our country’s forests are accessible to those of us who use mobility scooters.
