Tours in London for Travellers with Reduced Mobility



St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The landscape of London has changed dramatically over the years, from a small settlement by the Romans, to the two cities and 31 boroughs that now make up London. Today London welcomes millions of visitors each year, all hoping to sample a taste of the vibrant and diverse city. London sites are also becoming increasingly aware of the needs of their visitors, creating greater access for those with low mobility. With your private London driver-guide, you can visit many of London’s popular sites, on a bespoke London tour.

There aren’t many places in London where you can learn about British, Roman, Greek, Egyptian histories all in one afternoon. The British Museum is a world class museum and amongst its attributes, it holds the world’s largest collection of Egyptian relics outside of Cairo. It’s also almost fully accessible – entrances to the Museum can be taken by self-operating lifts. The majority of its galleries and all of its special exhibitions are wheelchair accessible. This means that when visiting the British Museum on a private 2 hour tour with your London tour guide, you certainly won’t be missing out!

London is also home to two famous churches. St Paul’s Cathedral houses the tombs of some of England’s greatest naval heroes, and Westminster Abbey houses some of the country’s greatest monarchs, as well as some of our creatives.  Both sites have good accessibility for those with low mobility. With the exception of the galleries in its dome, St Paul’s is completely wheelchair accessible, including the crypt with the burial of Lord Nelson, the figure on the top of Nelson’s column in Trafalgar square. Westminster Abbey has generally good accessibility with ramped access into the sites. There are some areas where there are steps to reach particular chapels, and some uneven surfaces around the Abbey. The Abbey also houses the Coronation Chair, which has been used to crown every king and queen of England but two since 1308AD!
