A magical time at Seven Stories
Seven Stories in Newcastle had a whole range of activities on for Disabled Access Day, including an early bird opening and lots of interactive story sessions. One visitor highly recommends the sensory story sessions:
“The story session was out of this world I never knew it was so interactive Jack loved it… bubbles, water, snow, wind, sand so many lovely sensory activities involved in the story. Thank you so much too all the staff we will be back and I highly recommend seven stories to anyone who has children it's magical”
Bagging three reviews as a result of their participation in Disabled Access Day, there are lots of first hand experiences to read on Euan’s Guide if you’re thinking of going too.
A first time trip to the Imperial War Museum
A fun packed day of activities was planned at the Imperial War Museum for Disabled Access Day, this visitor used the day as a reason to visit:
“For a long time I wanted to pay a visit to the IWM and it was their participation in the Disabled Access Day that made me go. I met very knowledgeable guides and I felt very well looked after.”

Praise for great customer service at Norwich Theatre Royal!
On Disabled Access Day, Norwich Theatre Royal held a touch tour before an audio described performance of Sleeping Beauty. One regular visitor to the theatre rated it 5 stars on Euan’s Guide and said:
“We can't fault The Access Team at Norwich Theatre Royal, they go above and beyond to ensure everyone is well looked after. They are always really approachable, accommodating, knowledgeable and attentive.”
Another visitor who had not visited the theatre before commented on the ease of access:
“Every attention to detail for our visit to this theatre for a Visually Impaired performance. Matthew and his team were excellent. We were sent a DVD prior to the performance, met in Reception and made to feel so welcome. My guide dog was looked after during the performance and the audio description was great.”

Tranquillity in the centre of London
In the centre of London, St Paul’s Cathedral is a peaceful place to relax and immerse yourself in history away from the hubbub of city life. On Disabled Access Day a whole programme of activities was put on, including guided tours and touch tours. One reviewer has given the cathedral 5 stars on Euan’s Guide, noting:
“The wheelchair access was via a side door and there is a bell to press to alert someone to open the door. We were taken behind the scenes along a small corridor to a good sized lift easy to turnaround in. This amazed me as a building so historic was able to have an excellent lift installed. The staff then take you to join the rest of the public.”

‘I will go again and again and again’
Another venue bagging multiple reviews from their participation in Disabled Access Day is Kelham Island Museum, a museum that tells the story of Sheffield’s industrial past. Both reviewers commented on the alterations that have been made to make the museum, and the city’s history, accessible to all:
“Great access for wheelchair users and considering the age and location of the premises this is no small feat. There is a great level surface pathway going through the cobbled stones and this is all the way from the car park to the main museum and the cafe and other units.”
