If you are planning a break the following information may help.

Day Trips and Short Breaks

Salisbury Tourist Information (tel 01722 342860) runs two day trips which they have told us are disability-friendly.

  • A coach trip goes from Salisbury to Stonehenge and drivers will help passengers load and unload wheelchairs, which would need to work on a grassy plain.  There are disabled toilets.
  • Salisbury Cathedral has disabled access to most areas.

A good online guide to other day trips is available at Accessible Guide.  It is particularly interesting for country house visits and has reviews from other users.

A good general site is Accessible Countryside.

Riverboat holidays can be arranged on the Kennet & Avon Canal organised by:

The Bruce Trust

Disabled Afloat Riverboats Trust

Longer Breaks

There are a number of companies serving national and international locations.  It is useful to take a look at their FAQ page first to see the concerns other people have and also to check they are ATOL/ABTA registered.
