Best Accessible Attraction To Visit

01 March 2019

The Transport Museum has been featured by Age UK as one of the best accessible attractions to visit in Coventry.

From learning about the legend of Lady Godiva to visiting family-friendly museums, there is so much to do in Coventry, and this is why it’s a great destination for a weekend break.

The future for Coventry looks bright as it will become the European City of Sport in 2019 and the UK City of Culture in 2021, demonstrating just how the city offers something for everyone with its rich history and an abundance of culture and arts.

Coventry is a very accessible city to visit and for those with mobility problems who use stairlifts at home, it is easy to get around, especially as the city was the first in the country to roll out the assist-Mi app scheme. This allows people with disabilities to communicate their specific needs before arriving at a wide range of destinations and has seen people describe Coventry as the UK’s most accessible city.

If you want to know what it's like driving the fastest car in the world, then you should head to Coventry Transport Museum, which is the city’s most visited attraction.

The Coventry Transport Museum houses the largest publicly owned collection of British vehicles in the world and tells the story of Coventry through the rise and fall of its biggest industry. It’s full of displays, interactive features and thousands of exciting exhibits. Visitors can expect a world-class museum experience. The collection includes the record-breaking Thrust2 and ThrustSSC, the oldest Coventry-built car; and many of the most innovative and memorable vehicles of the last 150 years.

The Transport Museum does not only display objects from its extensive automobilia, archival & photography collections, but is also showcasing future technology, creating immersive experiences, art installations, and so much more! The museum offers activities ranging from engineering challenges to scientific experiments. Embark on journeys of adventure and discovery for the whole family.

The museum is accessible to all, providing ramps, elevators, interactive objects and experiences, as well as disabled bathrooms throughout.
