AccessAble has created 40 guides to help people with disabilities to easier get around Aylesbury enabling people to check out the accessibility of places they’re intending to visit before they travel. This includes places like shops, cafes, restaurants and entertainment venues, as well as bus and train stations across Aylesbury.
The guides include detailed information about doors, lifts, toilets, staff training, lighting levels and background music to name a few. Access the Aylesbury guides here.
