New classic book store in Edinburgh
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair, Powerchair, Hidden Impairment
I have been looking forward to visiting this bookstore for months and was not disappointed! As it is a tight space, access is sometimes difficult in places but where adaptions have been made, they have been made well.
Transport & Parking
I came by bus and this dropped me off across the road. Lothian buses 1, 4, 5, 14, 15, 22, 25, 34, 44, 49 pass this way.
The ramped to the entrance is to the right of the door (next to the Italian restaurant). There is a lift inside which takes you to the upper level. Some corridors and rooms are too narrow for wheelchair users.
The accessible toilet is great in my opinion. It is in the back of the shop near the lift and travel books. No key is required and the Red Cord was hanging to the floor which is great.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Hand sanitisers are next to the check out desk and you are encouraged to wear a mask.
