Celebrate Museums at Night Weekend with The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain


Experience the UK’s top attractions by night for interactive family fun, evening exploration and sleepovers with The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain.


The Guide features reviews of over 200 accessible attractions up and down the UK including the Snibston Discovery Museum in Leicestershire. Situated on the former Snibston Colliery, families can discover the secret past of the historic site – and all is not as it seems. Visitors will be trained to use detective equipment, carry out an investigation and report on the evening’s discoveries, followed by a slap-up midnight supper.


Visit the Royal Museums in Greenwich, London, to celebrate Museums at Night Weekend and ‘Explore Your Universe’. Watch the planetarium show, ‘We are Aliens’ and get involved with the interactive family science show, ‘From Atoms to Aliens’ and ‘Make a Planet’ workshops. Families with little ones can head to Eureka! The National Children’s Museum in Yorkshire for fun, interactive workshops and demonstrations - be sure to bring your sleeping bag for a night rounded off by camping in the museum.


The fourth edition of The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain is available to view for free online and features over 200 inspiring ideas for worry-free days out, giving you plenty of new ideas for trips in 2013. Each review contains hints and tips from the Rough Guides team of disabled reviewers who visited each venue, looking for well thought out accessibility features and unique attractions, both of which contribute to making a great day out.


The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain series has been developed in association with Motability, the leading car scheme for disabled people. These online reviews contain all the accessibility information you need to enjoy a great day out.
