We hope you’re enjoying our new series of blogposts on the best cities in Europe to enjoy on your mobility scooter or wheelchair. This time, we’re heading to one of the most accessible cities in Europe: Oslo. It is a modern city with a long and ancient history, and it is just perfect for a few days away. It is certainly a place that has a lot going for it for the scooter user, not least an easily accessible public transport system and many different accessible sites to visit.
In the latest in our new series of blogposts on the most accessible cities in Europe, we are visiting a place that has an obsession with all forms of wheeled transport: Amsterdam. It’s a city that loves bicycles, so as a consequence it is no surprise that it is also a fantastic destination for those of us who use a mobility scooter or wheelchair to get about. Add in an extensive and accessible public transport system and the fact that it is one of the flattest cities in Europe and you can see why it makes for the perfect accessible getaway.
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 Scooters’ round up of some of the very best country pubs out there.
The White Horse, Brancaster
Sat right on the Norfolk coast (the views are gorgeous) this pub is a really special place.
As the days warm up and the weather improves, there is nothing better than getting out and about in the great British countryside. The UK’s forests and woodlands are wonderful at this time of the year, and the great news is that some of the best of them are also largely accessible to those of us using mobility scooters. So, with that in mind, here is Quingo Scooters guide to some of the best accessible woodland trails in the UK.
Haldon Forest Park, Devon
You really are spoiled for choice at Haldon Forest Park.
The UK’s many castles are a huge draw for visitors both from home and abroad, and the great news is that many of them accessible for all, even despite their great age. Here, Quingo Scooters takes a tour of the country’s finest.
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.
