Accessibility

Our standard guided walking tours are conducted on even terrain with no steps or hills. They are suitable for wheelchairs, mobility scooters, buggies etc. However, please be aware that many of the pavements are uneven and narrow and some streets are cobbled so please do take extra care. We advise any disabled visitors in wheelchairs to bring a 'carer', who may go free of charge. Guide dogs are welcome on all tours.

Carer policy

We extend our concessionary rate to guests with a disability. Free entry is offered to carers accompanying those with a disability. To book a daily tour online, please book your concessionary place and email guides@canterburytouristguides.co.uk or telephone us on 01227 459779 to let us know you will be bringing a carer with you (no carer ticket will be required on arrival)
