Access All Areas: how accessible is Plymouth?

Access All Areas: how accessible is Plymouth?

As part of our Access All Areas series on accessible tourism, Disability Horizons co-founder Martyn Sibley visits the coastal city of Plymouth.

With a great mix of city attractions and evenings out, coupled with being on the coast, Plymouth seems like a great place to get away to. But although it’s a modern city, is it accessible?

In his trip to Plymouth, Martyn visited a wealth of attractions, from the City Museum and Art Gallery, to the aquarium, Plymouth Gin Distillery and main theatre, to see how accessible it was.

Watch our video to find out what this city could offer you, whether you use a wheelchair, have  hearing and sight issues and or learning difficulties.
