I have a mobility disablity and I walk with a crutch. I'm also the London Ambassador for Euan's Guide, a disabled access charity. Accessibility is a very important issue to me. I believe in the Social Model of Disability. It's the lack of access rather than my impairment that disables me. I passionate about creating tours which are accessible to all.
Here are some suggestions of the type of things I can do:
- Design a tour that will take you to where you want to go
- Start and finish at a central London location convenient to you
- Create a step free route which avoids steep hills, stairs or cobblestones and uses dropped kerbs (curbs), ramps or lifts
- Relaxed tours which go at your pace and/ or arranged for times when busy areas will be less crowded
- Offer built in comfort stops so you can have a rest or visit a disabled accessible toilet (I carry my radar key with me)
- Offer short distance tours
- Use a portable voice amplifier
If you are thinking of booking a walking tour and you or someone in your group has a disability, please get in contact so I can tailor make the tour to accommodate your individual requirements, as most tours can be easily adapted.
When you contact me you will receive a personal reply and we can discuss your individual requirements.
