Travel Departures: Aid for disabled

ENGLISH Heritage has produced a guide to its 100 properties for disabled visitors. It details access, parking and toilet facilities, whether wheelchairs are available, and if the site provides tape tours or Braille guides. For visually impaired visitors, it lists the features that may appeal to touch, smell and hearing.

Copies of the guide can be obtained free from all staffed English Heritage sites, as well as tourist information centres and main libraries. Tape, Braille and large-print versions are also available direct from English Heritage, Portica House, Addison Road, Chilton Industrial Estate, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 6YJ.
