Norfolk is a great destination for everyone at any time of year. Miles of unspoilt coastline, internationally important nature reserves, hundreds of picturesque villages, historic market towns, the beautiful Norfolk Broads and Norwich, a fantastic heritage and shopping city, are just some of the delights on offer. Much work has been done, and to continues, to make sure that the delights of Norfolk can be enjoyed by all, whatever your access requirements or level of disability.
Finding the right accommodation is essential for an enjoyable holiday, and especially important if you have access requirements.
The National Accessible Scheme is a project which helps you find accommodation to suit your needs, independently assessed by trained assessors against demanding criteria.
The scheme, for self-catering, holiday parks and serviced accommodation, includes standards for hearing and visually impaired guests in addition to standards for guests with mobility impairment.
Many B&Bs, hotels, holiday cottages and holiday parks in Norfolk are accessible - but do remember to contact them with your requirements first.
Open Britain is a website managed by the Tourism For All UK charity. So many of us require extra assurance that our needs will be met - whether we are a young independent wheelchair user; a grandparent who is not as agile as they used to be and needs a ground floor room; one of the many people with a hearing or vision impairment; or a member of the deaf community. Finding information on accessible holidays or travel, which is often scattered in many different places, is a major barrier. This website aims to help overcome it.
Parking & public toilets: When you're out and about in Norfolk, you want to make sure you enjoy your day without having to worry about where to park and the nearest facilities.
There are accessible public toilets and Blue Badge parking bays across Norfolk.
