If there is one thing
that improves a day out in the country, it is finishing it off in a country pub
for a well-earned bite to eat and something to drink. The UK is rightly famous
for its fantastic pubs, and we’re pleased to say that many of them are
accessible to those of us with different mobility needs. Here is Quingo

lucky enough to see the Queen herself when you visit.
The UK is blessed with many wonderful natural
resources, from our National Parks to the many areas of wilderness and the dramatic
landscapes that we have to explore. But our natural springs are another
resource that can also be found up and down the country, and they have been a
draw for visitors for millennia. Here is Quingo Scooters’ guide to some of the
UK’s most accessible spa towns and experiences.
We had to start with Bath, a place that is
(literally) synonymous with its beautiful Roman spas.
We think Durham is almost the perfect getaway.
The city itself is small, so it is straightforward to get around. But it is
also big enough to keep you more than entertained for a few days. It is a city
with a long and fascinating history, and is one of those places that has
surprises around every corner. Here is Quingo Scooter’s guide to some of the
