Amazing and interesting
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
We were lucky enough to get tickets for Prime Minister's questions which was in the middle of the Brexit debates. Ask your MP for tickets.
Transport & Parking
We got the train to London. Ask for special assistance when when you book then they provide ramps. We weren't brave enough to try bus or tube so took taxis and they well equipped for wheelchairs...but expensive!
We asked for help at the information desk. A combination of ramps and lifts. We were escorted along back corridors which was interesting in itself. The only problem came at the entrance to the Central Lobby which was too narrow for my chair so I had to get up while my husband semi-collapsed it and pushed it through. The cafe had 2 tables giving priority to customers with disabilities.
There was a lift down to the cafe and loo, clearly signposted. There was a commentary for people who are visually impaired. Space to manoeuvre or for a carer but not both. Clean and tidy.
All helpful and friendly. Special note to the policeman who showed us where to be so we could watch the Speaker processing through the lobby to open parliament. Otherwise all i would have seen was a wall of people's backs!
Anything else you wish to tell us?
It was my first trip to London in a wheelchair and I was feeling daunted but with careful planning it worked well. Definitely up for going again.
