Lake District Road Trip

The Lake District, a popular tourist destination and a UNESCO World Heritage site, is well worth a visit. Enjoy its stunning landscapes including mountains, lakes, and picturesque villages.

Embark on a road trip through the National Park to immerse yourself in the incredible scenery. Start in the charming market town of Cockermouth, and head southwest to Loweswater. Here you’ll find a mile-long accessible path from Maggie’s Bridge car park down to the shores of the lake.

Next, drive south to Buttermere where you can enjoy a flat walk around the lake. Relax and take in the breathtaking vistas. From Buttermere, head south over the famous Honister Pass and loop north to Keswick.

Keswick is a bustling tourist destination that has a whole host of festivities throughout the summer. The Theatre by the Lake has a range of outdoor plays, music, and film events, that focus on delivering an accessible experience for all.

Continue your journey by heading to Grasmere. Here you can visit the William Wordsworth Museum that is packed with an array of interesting artefacts. Then, head down to Ambleside and explore the shores of Lake Windermere. Hard packed paths allow ease of access around the lake, and mobility scooters are available to hire from the Visitor Centre.

With its incredible scenery, the Lake District should certainly be on your list of places to visit this summer.

Beach Huts in Clacton-on-Sea

The Essex Coast is a beautiful part of the country, and Clacton-on-Sea is the perfect seaside resort. Within the town, you’ll find an array of attractions, including arcades, theatres, shops, and even an airfield.

The main highlight is the town’s pier which is accessible for wheelchair users with ramps. Saunter down Kings Promenade and take in the sea views. The promenade is lined with colourful beach huts, two of which are suitable for wheelchair access. The promenade walk should take around 20 – 30 minutes, and if you need a break, there are plenty of cafes along the way.

A visit to England’s ‘Sunshine Coast’ is a must if you’re in the South East this summer!
