Tue 6 June 2017, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
The U.K. is renowned for its beautiful landscapes. The many trails and country estates we have throughout the country offer the opportunity to experience that natural beauty at first hand.
When it comes to accessibility however, some destinations fall short of offering a great customer experience and with the needs of disabled visitors and the variety of solutions on offer varying so greatly getting this right can feel like a minefield.
This one day workshop is designed to provide you with all the tools you need to become a destination that is accessible for all and will enable you to successfully tap into the U.K.'s £12.1 billion Accessible Tourism market.
By the end of the training attendees will have:

Developed a range of solutions to these barriers through providing the right information, facilities and customer service
