Disabled Holidays In Bournemouth

Bournemouth is a popular town for tourism and places a lot of pride in its image and reputation, not only does this mean Bournemouth has a huge selection of attractions but also that many of them are available to disabled persons. Disabled holidays in Bournemouth are readily available and it means that many of the fantastic attractions in and around Bournemouth can be enjoyed by everyone.

Being a famous seaside town, one of Bournemouth’s most attractive features is its Blue Flag awarded beach. Beach wheelchairs with balloon tires are available to all disabled beach goers to ensure that everyone can enjoy this amazing seven mile beach, plenty of space for hearing and guide dogs too. As well as this, Bournemouth pier is a destination for thousands of families each year. Not only an attraction because of its incredible views, but on the pier itself there are theatres and attractions which make any trip to Bournemouth memorable. Just to the west of nearby Boscombe Pier is a promenade and every day in summer, a beach track is laid out to allow easy access for all types of wheelchairs. The beach track goes right down to the high water mark so everyone can get right up to the sea in a safe and controlled fashion.

Another crucial aspect of disabled holidays in Bournemouth is getting around exploring and enjoying more of the town and Bournemouth has many ways of getting from one side of the town to the other. You can take a Land Train straight along the famous promenade, this runs from Easter until October and has wheelchair access and a carer can travel free. If you’re a fan of slightly more spectacular views, there is also a cliff lift providing not only an incredible view of the beach and sea but also a link between the beach and the cliff top, where you find several hotels and further attractions. Much like the land train, there is access for wheelchairs and a carer can travel for no additional cost.

With so much to do and discover, an often overlooked aspect of disabled holidays in Bournemouth is accommodation. So whilst Bournemouth's attractions cater for visitors of all abilities, just as much thought and effort has been put into ensuring that the accommodation is as problem free as the attractions around them. The diverse accommodation tailors to every budget, tastes and disabled requirements. Nearing completion in the summer are innovative beach huts with disabled beach huts in nearby Boscombe. You can find out more about accessibility in the area by contacting Bournemouth's Tourist Information Office on 0845 051 1700.
