More about Disabled Access Day

Disabled Access Day began in 2015 as a day to celebrate good access around the UK and beyond, and create opportunities for people to try something new.

This year extended to three days, 10 to 12 March, Disabled Access Day is sponsored by Euan’s Guide, a listing and review site that helps disabled people, their friends and families know which venues that are accessible.
