TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham is a passionate advocate of the benefits of getting out and about in the great outdoors.
Living with autism he understands sometimes there can be barriers to accessibility that aren’t always obvious.
For 10 years the Rough Guide to Accessible Britain has been championing accessibility for all. This year for the first time it also includes reviews for visitors with hidden conditions such as autism and mental illness.
All places and venues in the guide have been reviewed by team of reviewers, who either have a disability themselves or visited the venue with a disabled friend or relative.
“From personal experience, I know that many people face particular barriers to enjoying a day out.,” says Chris. “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”.
The guide, available to read free online, includes more than 180 ideas for fantastic days out that are open to everyone.
