Access for All

Despite the whole city being designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with many Georgian townhouses and even Roman remains, Bath is accessible to all visitors.

Come into the Visitor Information Centre and ask our staff for tips on where to discover the best museums and galleries or the most interesting places to eat out. Our staff are used to catering for visitors with mobility and access needs and will direct you to the most appropriate options.

Bath has a Shopmobility service available to all visitors where you can hire electric scooters, powered wheelchairs (£1/hour) or manual chairs (50p/hour).

Take a full tour of Bath and the surrounding area with Mike from Liberty Car Tours. Mike’s car will fit a collapsible mobility scooter or wheelchair into the trunk and he is an expert in making your trip accessible and enjoyable.

A range of accessible accommodation is available, use the filter function or look out on our listings for the Accessible or Wheelchair Accessible symbols. Many accommodation providers will allow guide dogs and give full details on key points for visitors with access needs.

Here are some of our accommodation suggestions for booking an accessible stay:

  • Holiday Inn Express
  • Hilton Bath City
  • SACO Bath - St James’ Parade
  • Bailbrook House
  • Apex City of Bath Hotel
  • Three Abbey Green - suitable for a person with sufficient mobility to climb a short flight of steps but who would benefit from fixtures and fittings to aid balance
