A very beautiful shopping centre with major shops such as Gap, River I
I was planning a visit for a wheelchair user client. I checked the place for accessibility and asked staff some questions as well. I was lucky to meet a wheelchair user and had a chat about wheelchair access and the shopping experience.
Transport & Parking
There is free disabled parking bays at two of the three parking floors with easy access to the shops. There are 16 Blue Badge parking spaces on parking level 1 and 26 Blue Badge parking spaces on parking level 2. There is also close public transport (trains, buses, taxis)
There is a reception desk with a lowered section. There is also a hearing assistance system. The wheelchair access areas are signposted with lifts to move between the floors
Disabled toilets available, well labelled, ample space for wheel chair users with support bars. There is tactile and pictorial signage on or near the toilet doors
Staffs were very friendly and offered to help if needed. Staff are said to have done disability awareness and equality training
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Good shopping experience which accommodates the need of disabled people.
