Accessibility: Walking for everyone

Getting out into green and blue spaces can give your health and wellbeing a much-needed boost. Fortunately, awareness is growing about how to make Great Britain’s most beautiful places accessible. More wide, well-surfaced paths are being created. Larger spaces for Blue Badge holders are being introduced in car parks. More toilets accessible to wheelchair users or other people with mobility issues are appearing at visitor centres and beauty spots.  

Still, it pays to think ahead when planning an outing. Here are some points to consider when scouting your outdoor excursions.
