Mobility Access

Guidance for visitors with restricted mobility

LUCS welcomes visitors in wheelchairs, and those with restricted mobility.  We have reserved parking for Blue Badge holders, and our Tea Room, Museum, Classroom and Toilets are all wheelchair accessible.

Our boats, however, cannot take wheelchairs, and their steep access steps present problems for some people with limited mobility.  Our Crews will do all they safely can to accommodate all passengers, but access cannot be guaranteed, and is ultimately at the discretion of the boat’s Skipper, who is responsible for the safety of all on board.

For those with limited mobility who want to sail on the Union Canal, LUCS is happy to recommend the Seagull Trust, who operate boats specifically designed for passengers with special needs, including wheelchair users.
