The UK’s stately homes are among some of the finest on the planet, and have been immortalised in countless novels, TV period dramas and films. They are also amongst the most popular places to visit in the country, particularly for those of us with limited mobility. It goes without saying that these are, by their very nature, old properties. This brings its own challenges for mobility scooter users in terms of accessibility. However, many of the UK’s best stately homes do a great job of opening these buildings up to as many visitors as possible.
Here at Quingo Scooters we know how much fun it can be to spend a day out doing something different, or visiting a place you thought maybe wasn’t accessible enough. We’re always on the lookout for a day out to share with Quingo Scooters Users that has something for everyone.
Today we’re heading to North Yorkshire, where you’ll find one of the finest stately homes and gardens in Britain. Castle Howard is a private residence approximately 15 miles north of York, and has been the home of the Carlisle branch of the Howard family for more than 300 years.
