All aboard ....

This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair

Overview

For something of its age it's fairly accessible. You can't see everything as a wheelchair user but you do get a good sense of what life on board was like.

Transport & Parking

0

On the south bank of the river Thames it's easy to get at on foot. Several options for public transport.

Access

4

Access was impressive for its age. There is a modern ticket office, shop and cafe on shore. Once you have your tickets you go on board via a long boarding ramp and the gradient will vary according to the tide. At the end of the gangway there's a platform lift that staff operate to take you down to the main deck. You can get around two of the main decks and I mnaged to get around easily with my powerchair. There are a couple of narrow doorways but these are probably wide enough for everything other than the wide chair e.gl more than 70 cm.

Toilets

3.5

There is an accessible toilet on board and access is via a RADAR key. The doorway to approach this area is quite narrow so may not suit some wider wheelchairs.

Staff

5

Staff were particularly helpful from the ticket team who explained the accessibility through to the stewards around the vessel.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

The accessible route takes you through the main living quarters where you get a feel for life on board. Everything from the dental surgery through to the bakery, and shop. You can go on to an upper deck where you can wheel to the bow and get a great view.
