Here at Quingo Scooters we’re always on the lookout for some great places you can visit on your mobility scooter with ease.
As Mother’s day approaches us this weekend (Sunday March 6th) Quingo take a look at some spots up and down the country that are the perfect accessible attraction for this day of appreciation. Whether you want to treat your own mum, or you are a mum who wants to drop some not-so-subtle hints – here are some great ideas for a day out.
Spa Day in Surrey
A spa day is the perfect way to spend some bonding time with mum. One of the best accessible spa’s is The Spa at Pennyhill Park Hotel in Surrey. Here you’ll find a peaceful getaway just 45 minutes from London, situated in the grounds of the historic ivy-clad manor house. The hotel also has a two Michelin starred restaurant if you fancy treating Mum to a bite to eat after your spa treatments.
The deluxe Spa changing rooms have a lift and feature a wheel-in shower in each. The treatment beds are height adjustable, and there is level access to the sauna and steam rooms. Also accessible via a lift is the gym, situated on the lower level of The Spa, and members of the gym team are always on hand to assist you with your workout.
This is great for the Mums who never get chance to chill out, relax and have some ‘me’ time.
Shopping Spree on Oxford Street
The Capital’s Oxford Street is famous for its collection of all the best high street and designer brands. For the Mum who loves her fashion, this would be the perfect surprise. Oxford Street is accessible by bus, with the accessible bus station at Green Park – where you can catch many routes – just 15 minutes away.
Selfridge’s is London’s most famous department store and is definitely one to tick off the list on your shopping spree, where you can get everything from jewellery to kitchenware. You’ll find step-free entrances via Duke Street, Oxford Street, Edward Mews and Orchard Street. There are automatic doors via the Orchard Street entrance and accessible lifts throughout.
If high-street fashion is more your thing, Oxford Street’s Topshop is the London’s ultimate flagship store. Kate Moss caused chaos when she made a surprise personal appearance in 2014 to showcase her Kate Moss for Topshop collection. With a step-free entrance, lifts throughout and an accessible toilet in the basement you can shop till you drop! It’s quite big, so plan some time for this one!
Be a Chocoholic in York
For the Mum who absolutely adores chocolate, what better way to spend Mother’s Day than in a world of chocolatey goodness! York’s Chocolate Story is a tasty guided tour taking you through the history of York’s most famous chocolate-making families and their spectacular creations. Here you can find out how to make it for yourself and most importantly, how to taste chocolate like an expert. You’ll even discover some best kept secrets about the worldwide famous Chocolate Orange and KitKats. The exhibition is fully accessible with lifts throughout, but they do require you to book in advance as due to health and safety reasons only one mobility scooter is allowed at any one time.
After you’ve become an expert in all things chocolate, don’t forget to spend some time browsing the delicious delights of the shop and bring home some souvenirs. Whilst you’re in York you could even visit the famous Betty’s Tea Rooms (who have ramps and lifts to make it fully accessible) for some afternoon tea and tick that one off the list too!
