The British are a nation of gardeners, and when we are not tending our own, there is nothing we enjoy more than taking a look around someone else’s. Fortunately, the UK is blessed with hundreds of incredible gardens, many of which are accessible to those of us who use mobility scooters. Here is our guide to the best UK gardens.
The Eden Project
We had to start our round up of the UK’s best and most accessible gardens with one of its most unusual and well known.
Britain’s favourite seaside resort is world famous for its iconic Tower, its rich entertainment history and of course, ballroom dancing. Plus, it’s a really accessible city. Let’s take a quick getaway to Blackpool…
Sandcastle Water Park
It might seem like madness to begin this review of one of Britain’s best-known beach resorts with a review of an indoor waterpark, but bear with us. We’re choosing to feature the fabulous Sandcastle Water Park for a couple of reasons. Not least that the weather in Blackpool can’t always be relied on to provide perfect swimming conditions for all the family!
A beautiful city of dreaming spires, unique galleries and museums, wonderful public open spaces and of course a world-famous university: Oxford is a fantastic place to spend a few days. Here is our pick of some of the best accessible places to visit.
The Pitt Rivers Museum
No visit to Oxford is complete without a trip to the Pitt Rivers Museum. Augustus Henry Lane-Fox Pitt Rivers was a British Army officer who is world-renowned as one of founders of modern archaeology, and this museum is a celebration of his many discoveries.

Rievaulx Abbey, North Yorkshire
Rievaulx Abbey is one of those places that is so beautiful, and in such a spectacular setting, that it is almost hard to believe it is real.
Here at Quingo Scooters, we certainly do love to be beside the seaside. And there are few better places to enjoy the UK’s wonderful coastline than Lyme Regis in Dorset. It is a small town, but one that promises visitors a dramatic and invigorating stay. Here are just a few of the great routes in and around Lyme Regis that are accessible to those of us using mobility scooters.
