Welcome to Accessible Derbyshire
Derbyshire is a beautiful county. Its peaks, dales, woodland and waterways form one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world, its stunning towns and villages are full to the brim with interesting places to visit and great things to do. No wonder the Peak District is the second most visited National Park in the world!
For some people, however, accessing all that Derbyshire has to offer is tough.
If you have a disability or have mobility difficulties and use a wheelchair, pushchair or scooter our hills and valleys and their old, listed buildings – the very things that make Derbyshire special - can seem out of reach.
At Accessible Derbyshire we have a dream: to make life easier for people with disabilities, their families and Carers.
Our aim is to bring together - in one place - all the information you need to get out and about in Derbyshire and the Peak District and enjoy life to the full.
Whether you are looking for a level stroll round a pretty village followed by afternoon tea in a quaint café or a sumptuous meal in a local pub or fancy a more adventurous accessible activity such as cycling, sailing or climbing the hills on a Boma 7 all–terrain wheelchair this is the site for you!
If you want to know where you can take a break in a luxurious fully-accessible holiday property or hotel, want to know where the Changing Places toilets are in Derbyshire or which local events or attractions might be suitable for you then look no further!
Accessing everything is impossible but, working closely with Visit Peak District, the Peak National Park Authority, Derbyshire County Council and District Councils we’ll tell you exactly what’s out there so you can choose what’s right for you. This is, if you like, tourism ‘on the level’……..
So, with all the information you need just a click away what are you waiting for?
