A disability charity which has found that only one third of top UK tourist sites are wheelchair accessible said tourist attractions are not taking the issue seriously.
Vitalise's chief executive Chris Simmonds said: "The results of our survey show too many of Britain's tourist attractions are not taking accessibility seriously. That has got to improve."
These venues need to work just as hard on how they communicate essential accessibility information to people with disabilities. Our own research shows two thirds of disabled people decide against visiting attractions because of a lack of clear information about how accessible it is.
Vitalise, which provides short breaks for disabled people and their carers, asked 100 tourist destinations to provide information about their accessibility. Two thirds of those who replied admitted they were not fully accessible.
