Do you have a dinosaur enthusiast in the family? Well, you might like to get on down to The Natural History Museum in London this year.
Who could resist a chance to see the Titanosaur, It was the largest dinosaur ever to walk the earth. Believed to have stood about 8 metres tall. I can’t even imagine that!! You get a chance to walk beneath the dinosaur skeleton, it sounds like an unforgettable experience.
For anyone with travel access needs going to, or in London, this should be helpful. I use the passenger assistance app which is mentioned on here for planning train travel. https://tfl.gov.uk/transport-accessibility/
Yesterday I went to Portcullis House in London to take part in the official launch of the Disabled Citizens’ Inquiry. This aims to make walking & wheeling more inclusive for us all, and to give disabled people a voice in the process.
Well I am off to London on Wednesday, the first time I’ve been on a train since before Covid19 took over our lives. So slightly nervous about the journey, but have done all the pre-journey preparation that I can.
I’ve booked assistance for a ramp to board, and disembark the train each way, tickets are booked, checked the access details for the stations, and booked a wheelchair space and a seat for the person travelling with me.
Have checked my destination is accessible, and also made sure I have a radar key should it be needed to access disabled loos. Will look online on the journey to make sure lifts required are working, and if all else fails get a bus or taxi instead of the underground.
As a wheelchair user you always have to have a back up plan!!
