There is so much to see and do in London that it is impossible to see it all in one trip, or even in one lifetime! Thankfully this modern, cultural and vibrant city has countless attractions which are very easy for wheelchair and disabled users to visit, and one of these is the London Eye and the River Cruise.

With full wheelchair access to this incredible landmark of the city, with soaring views over the capital, and with boarding ramps and members of staff helping those into the capsules, it is very easy to visit. There are only two wheelchair users allowed per capsule and eight in total on the London Eye, meaning that if you do have a wheelchair, you should definitely book your space in advance. There are also disabled toilets in the vicinity.

Another exciting thing to do in London which is perfectly accessible for the disabled is to visit the West End to watch a wonderful musical or a play. Whether you fancy We Will Rock You, Wicked or War Horse, wheelchair user’s needs are met in every way, from access to the theatres themselves and from transfer from your chair to a theatre chair or to a designated space. You will have to book in advance to let staff know as there are a limited number of wheelchair spaces available, but if you do so, you will not need to worry about access, only just to sit back and enjoy the spectacular showcase!

From the many museums and art galleries of London such as the National Gallery and the Natural History Museum to Tower Bridge and the London Dungeons, everything in the city can be seen if you are in a wheelchair and if you are staying at a rented apartment that has been kitted out to suit your access needs, you will have the trip of a lifetime.
