On a recent trip to a friends apartment in N. Cyprus we were concerned about the lack of grab bars in the toilet. I sourced a folding toilet frame online from Active Mobility. I was dubious as to whether it would work but we took it on the plane anyway. It went in the hold,…

I recently went to stay at a friends apartment in N.Cyprus. We took with us a folding bed rail, as I knew I needed help in and out of bed and didn’t want to depend on others too much. I bought it from Active Mobility and it was a great aid and very simple to…

I often go to The Almeida Theatre in Islington as I know they have full access, a disabled toilet and a bar. In addition one of my favourite restaurants is opposite, The Almeida , part of the D&D London empire. Again it has a disabled toilet and flat access. The service is helpful and the…

The French Lieutenant took me to a bar he said would be right for me, cool, trendy, full of antiques and with a hippo on the wall! Initially insulted I was also intrigued. So we found Loungelover in a back street near Shoreditch High St. This is a bar which is part of  Les Trois…

The Riding House Cafe in Gt. Titchfield St., was the venue last night. I went with Lieutenants 2 & 3. Lieutenant 3 is the film director for my videos – coming soon to You Tube. As always I asked  about accessibility on booking, there were no surprises. I was warned of the step to get…

The Hereford in Notting Hill was suggested by Lieutenant No 1, as somewhere I should review. Rang first re disabled toilet and level access – the only problem I was told would be a step to negotiate at the entrance. We arrived and the entrance was duly dealt with – not too difficult. We were…

 Went to Rock  & Rose in Richmond last month and as soon as they saw me coming they got the ramp out and a glass of champagne! Great place for a casual lunch or a more formal occasion. Particularly like the Cecil Beaton Rose wallpaper. Very helpful staff but quite a full restaurant so try…

  The other Friday I and my trusted Lieutenant visited Marcus Wareing’s Restaurant The Gilbert Scott at St. Pancras. My first visit had been earlier in the year and as it was newly opened their disabled facilities were a bit haphazard e.g. I was told there was a lift  and ramp into the bar but…

Traveled by East Coast trains to Edinburgh. Very easy to get on and off, assistance provided and only £100 return first class. The Fringe Festival is more like a ‘grunge’ festival. I have never been in so many back offices/ kitchens in my life! Gigs at the festival have been mainly accessible but usually via…
