Access at the 5* Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in London

The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel is located in east London and I stayed here twice; both times for two nights instead of the usual one. I absolutely loved it! Probably one of the most relaxing and accessible hotels I have stayed at – and that is saying something with how specific I have to be.…… Continue reading Access at the 5* Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in London

I find this frustrating…

It’s frustrating how many hotels charge more for an accessible room because of the extra space required, even though sometimes I wish to have the same as anybody else (I’m guessing other disabled people may wish too?). Or the fact that there are limited types of rooms which are accessible for example; one hotel might…… Continue reading I find this frustrating…

Access at the Hilton, Angel Islington in London

I stayed at the Hilton Angel Islington recently and was very pleased i tried out this hotel – it was definitely an experience! Trying to find fully accessible hotels in London is incredibly difficult, the constant emailing and phone calls to find out what hotels offer can become tiring whilst many don’t actually advertise accessibility at all.…… Continue reading Access at the Hilton, Angel Islington in London

Access at the Holiday Inn Express in Southwark, London

I stayed at this hotel for the first time back in 2014 for my end-of-year-one at university celebration weekend. This stay was complimentary as when I previously went, they were carrying out renovations and the ‘wheelchair accessible’ lift was smaller than my actual wheelchair! However, you live and you learn. On arrival, there is a…… Continue reading Access at the Holiday Inn Express in Southwark, London

Zico in London!

There is so much planning that goes into my trips to London ranging from access onto the trains, to hotels and whether they meet my needs, to venues or attractions and if they have disabled toilets. But whether these all work well is another matter! On the 4th January 2017, I took my first trip…… Continue reading Zico in London!

Caricature Drawing Of Me! (Bucket List #19)

Back in October, I took a graduation celebration trip down to London for 2.5 day.

Walking (or driving) down Leicester Square, I had thought to myself ‘I’ve wanted…… Continue reading Caricature Drawing Of Me! (Bucket List #19)
