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.
As an island nation, the UK has had a long love affair with the seaside. A trip to the beach is as British as, well, fish and chips. But it’s also something that those of us who use a mobility scooter may have avoided in the past. The perception was that many beaches might not be all that accessible, and that sand or pebbles aren’t best suited to four wheels. Happily, things are changing, and here, as part of our Accessible Attractions series, Quingo Scooters is heading to the beach.
The Monty Python team once famously posed the question: ‘What did the Romans ever do for us?’ Well, to the long list of sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system and public health, you can add the fine city of Chester. But it’s not only a beautiful historic city, it’s also a highly accessible one.
In the latest instalment of our Accessible Getaways series, Quingo Scooters looks at some of the great things that you can do in Chester.
Despite its challenging history, Belfast is fast becoming a hugely popular tourist destination for those looking to get away for a few days. There is certainly plenty to see and do. In the latest of our Accessible Getaways series, Quingo Scooters looks at just a few of the fantastic things you can enjoy during a few days in this great city.
Where to start? There’s so much to explore in Belfast’s various quarters, from the cobbled streets around its cathedral and its Game of Thrones connection to the hundreds of great bars and restaurants and of course its sites of historic and cultural importance like the Peace Walls and its many murals.
