Many of us need that extra assurance that our needs will be met, whether we are an independent wheelchair user; a grandparent who is not as agile as they used to be and needs a ground floor room; or one of the many people with a sight or hearing loss.
Finding information on accessible holidays or travel, which is often scattered in many different places, can be a major barrier. The website, which is the realisation of a dream for the charity Tourism for All UK, aims to help overcome this.
OpenBritain brings together information from a variety of sources in order to provide as much choice and coverage as possible. VisitEngland and DisabledGo are key partners in this, both of whom undertake access inspections. VisitEngland awards ratings for accommodation under the National Accessible Scheme and DisabledGo collects access information on behalf of a wide range of organisations and local authorities. And of course Tourism for All members are also prominently featured. Some of the information is provided by the venues themselves, ie they are self-assessed. For those seeking extra assurance, inspected venues carry the logo of the organisation who visited them.
