Welcome to Access London

Welcome All to the new Access London blog.

I am based just outside London and have a disability that means I have mobility related problems. I started this blog to help others with disabilities to grow in confidence and venture out into London and experience all the wonders that our capital city has to offer.

I regularly go to central London and stay for long weekends or simply visit for the day. This blog will share some of the information I have gathered on my journeys to help those with mobility related disabilities to make the most of the cultural delights of the city.

I will be posting information and locations on the best places to see and go that have made the effort to assist those of us with such disabilities. The blog will cover a variety of places and experiences to suit different ages and interests.

Short question and answer sessions with some of the people who work at/run the attractions will be included as often as possible and I will review each place and provide contact details so you can find out more information that suits your own requirements.

This isn't just a blog for those of us that live in or just outside London, but for those who live elsewhere in the UK and abroad. I will be reviewing places to stay and have one particular hotel that I would recommend to anyone visiting the city - more on that next week!

Each month, I aim to post an additional post about an attraction in a different UK city. Many of these will be places I have visited myself. However, if you would like the chance to feature as a guest blogger, writing about an attraction in the city you live, please get in touch. I can be reached at

I use a mobility scooter and so the places I visit and review will have that in mind, so those of you who use a standard, manual wheelchair should have no problems accessing what I have.

If you too have visited any of the places I review, drop me a line and leave a comment, I would love to hear from you. Don't forget to spread the word about this new and exciting blog - go on, Access London Now!
