Accessible parliament building
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Assistance Dog - Visual
I was meeting a friend at the Scottish Parliament for a coffee in their cafe. I arrived at the Parliament building and was fast tracked through security so that I did not have to queue with my guide dog. The Parliament knew I was coming as I had alerted them to my assistance requirements using Welcome app by Neatebox and I was met by a member of the Parliament staff as soon as I had been through security. I was told that my friend had already arrived and was assisted through to the cafe.
Transport & Parking
I travelled to the Scottish Parliament from a meeting in the city centre. The number 35 bus stops right across from the Parliament entrance.
The Scottish Parliament is very accessible for disabled visitors. They have the Welcome app by Neatebox so you can let them know of any assistance requirements in advance before you arrive. They also have a dedicated BSL team for any deaf visitors who require personal BSL translation.
The staff were absolutely brilliant. I must give a special shout out to Babis in the Parliament cafe, he was especially helpful and done an awesome job assisting me.
