Vitalise, which provides short breaks for disabled people and their carers, asked the top 100 tourist destinations as rated by the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions to provide information about their accessibility, receiving just 52 replies.

Of those, 33 were admitted they were not fully accessible to wheelchair users, while 13 had no disabled car parking spaces and the same number did not advertise the information on their websites.
