UK's Best Accessible Holidays

Hi! We're Rob and Bridget, The Bimblers. We have chronic illnesses and are disabled, but that doesn't stop us from exploring.

We love to travel, and we want you to be able to do the same. That's why we started this blog: to share our experiences of visiting all corners of our country (and beyond) so that you can learn from us and discover what you can do yourself.

We combine our love of travel with helping others who want to travel but might not know where to start. We hope by following our adventures, you'll see that travel in the UK is accessible; it just takes a little extra planning!
