Spinnaker Tower has been included in the new edition of the Rough Guide to Accessible Britain, an inspiring travel guide aiming to support people with diverse needs in enjoying the best of Britain’s attractions – whatever their ability.
Now in its 10th year, the revamped Rough Guide to Accessible Britain includes over 180 thorough reviews of accessible and inclusive attractions, focusing on venues delivering the best experiences and days out for those with diverse needs. For the first time the Guide has extended its reviews to include information for visitors with more hidden conditions such as autism or mental illness.
Spinnaker Tower has been thoroughly checked out by Rough Guides’ team of reviewers, who either have a disability themselves or visited the venue with a disabled friend or relative. The reviewers were impressed with Spinnaker Tower’s efforts to be as inclusive as possible, highlighting the easy accessibility of the building and the helpfulness of the staff.
The Guide has the enthusiastic backing of TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham, a passionate advocate of the great outdoors. Chris said:
“The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain is a celebration of some of the best and most inclusive venues in the UK. From personal experience, I know that many people face particular barriers to enjoying a day out. The Guide equips visitors with all the information they need to set out with confidence, so they can simply concentrate on making the most of their day.”
