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.
We all need to get away sometimes, and there is nothing we love more here at Quingo Scooters than tracking down the best short breaks in the UK for you. There are certainly plenty to choose from but this time we’re finding out what the beautiful northern spa town of Harrogate has to offer.
It’s a regular winner of the best place to live in the UK and it really is no wonder. Harrogate is a stunning town, full of historic buildings and tea rooms to wile away the days in.
Mobility scooters offer the perfect way to get around if you’re wanting to explore the great outdoors. And the destination we’re focusing on this time certainly has fresh air in abundance: the Lake District is famous around the world, and the great news is that much of it is accessible. So, here Quingo Scooters finds out what this incredible National Park has to offer.

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.… Read more
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.
