Ashmolean Museum had been identified as the number one attraction in the South East by REVITALISE, a national charity that provides respite holidays for disabled people and carers.
A number of UK visitor attractions across the region had been surveyed and given a score on their accessibility in a Revitalise Accessible Tourism Report published today.
The criteria included hoist availability, staff training in disability awareness, concessions for disabled visitors and their carers, and disabled toilets.
The Ashmolean ranked higher than many London attractions such as Museum of London, the British Museum and Kensington Palace.
A comment from Louise Paz, Head of Marketing at Revitalise stated: “We are pleased to announce that the Ashmolean Museum has moved up 13 places since the last Revitalise Accessible Tourism Report. They have recognised the need to become more accessible to disabled people and have improved their disabled parking facilities. Small changes like this can help to make a big impact, and we encourage them to keep up the great work giving accessibility the focus it needs.”
