There was 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. Here is Quingo Scooters’ guide to the best accessible forests in the UK.
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.
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 most accessible sights in the wonderful city of Durham.
Soak up the atmosphere of the historic cathedral
Durham’s wonderful cathedral dominates the city and you will have no problems finding it!
Cambridge is famous the world over for its first class university, and of course that institution certainly dominates this fantastic town. But beyond the colleges and the hustle and bustle of student life, there are also plenty of other things to see in this historic place: and many of them are accessible for all visitors. Here are just a few of our personal highlights.
Explore the colleges
Of course, no visit to Cambridge would be complete without spending a bit of time in and around the city’s iconic university.
