What makes Euan’s Guide different to all the access guides before it?
It allows users to visit new places with confidence, after learning from the experiences of someone with a similar disability. For example, I can find out what venues in Edinburgh another powerchair user has reviewed and learn what they thought of them. Another key difference is that we don’t just feature accommodation, restaurants and tourist attractions – the site allows users to review places that they go to every day, such as stations, supermarkets and post offices – you can even review outdoor spaces such as parks or well-known locations such as London’s Piccadilly Circus. Venues can give more detailed information on their accessibility features, like whether they have an induction loop, Changing Places toilet or offer relaxed performances.
