I live in KIngston Park, which is about 5 miles North West of Newcastle upon Tyne, and I use a manual wheelchair (Quickie TI Lite) all of the time to get out and about. As you can imagine, access is significantly important to me, as it is to millions of others around the World who also have mobility issues.

2012-11-12 Braun Chair Topper on Ford SMAX (20121126)I currently drive a Ford S-Max, which is converted with hand controls (Jeff Gosling Hand Controls) and also features a Braun ChairTopper rooftop storage box for my wheelchair, which gives me full independence when I’m out in my car.

While I often go to places away from home, there are a number of pubs, restaurants and attractions within a mile or so of my home that I go to regularly and are suitably wheelchair accessible for me. If you have similar needs to me and are visiting Newcastle, it’s conceivable that I may be more equipped to tell you about the accessibility of some places where you could stay, eat out at and go to during your visit than what is available on-line or if you contact the place directly.

I’ll happily try to help you find out more about the places listed below if you get in touch by email at steve@wheelchairsteve.com.
