Birmingham boasts an ever increasing choice of accessible accommodation, attractions and shops. A wide range of facilities are open to disabled visitors, carers, and anyone who needs accessibility.

Throughout the website we offer as much detail as possible, so that you can make the best choice about how to get around, where to stay in comfort and what to see and do.



Visit Birmingham is working closely with AccessAble to give you the detailed information you need to work out if a place is going to be accessible to you.

AccessAble’s Detailed Access Guides tell you all about a venue's access - hotels and guest houses, places to eat and drink, places to visit and much more. They are 100% facts, figures and photographs. We know everyone's accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed, accurate information is so important. It's why AccessAble send trained surveyors to check out every single place in person and why the information collected has all been decided by the people who use it.

Check out access information for Birmingham - before you leave home or on the move using AccessAble’s App and Website.


Access Statements

Many tourism venues provide information on the accessibility of their facilities and services in the form of a written Access Statement, to help you ‘know before you go’. All VisitEngland star-rated accommodation and quality-assured attractions are required to have an Access Statement.

Typical information may include, for example, the frequency of buses, useful telephone numbers, the number of steps to the front door and the availability of subtitles on televisions.

So, when you are next researching which accommodation to stay at and attractions to visit, ask to see their Access Statements.
