Dedicated information for disabled visitors or those with limited mobility- helping you plan your visit to Birmingham.
Dedicated information for disabled visitors, older visitors with limited mobility, parents, personal assistants or carers is also listed on this page.
If you need more information about a particular aspect of your stay please contact us. We will be happy to find out what you need to know.
Many tourism venues provide information on the accessibility of their facilities and services in the form of a written Access Statement, to help you ‘know before you go’. All VisitEngland star-rated accommodation and quality-assured attractions are required to have an Access Statement.
Typical information may include, for example, the frequency of buses, useful telephone numbers, the number of steps to the front door and the availability of subtitles on televisions.
So, when you are next researching which accommodation to stay at and attractions to visit, ask to see their Access Statements.
Information about Blue Badge parking in the city is provided by Birmingham City Council.

Changing Places Toilets

Let us give you a helping hand to find your way around Birmingham. We have worked through Direct Enquiries with some of the most popular attractions and venues in the city, to identify their closest car park, railway station or bus route and then provided a text and photo journey that you can read on screen or print off for your arrival.
We have included info about distances and surfaces – ideal if you are a wheelchair user, transferring through Birmingham between stations with your luggage or bringing a pushchair. Or this could be just what you need if you are map-phobic, and new to the city.
Choose your destination, click on the image showing where you want to go and follow the route link. There is also info about the accessible facilities and services of the destination and of shops en-route.
