Welcome to Visit Northumberland’s dedicated accessibility section, helping provide assistance for visitors with various disabilities. If you require any assistance regarding any accessibility issues please contact one of our local tourist information centres. Find information centres in Northumberland.

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.
